We use market values derived from many sources such as auction prices realized (online such as eBay & more traditional auction houses), dealers buy & sell lists, printed price lists, online stores & sites etc. We monitor changes in precious metal prices and these are accounted for in our calculations. Sources such as PCGS Price Guide and NGC Price Guides reflect real-time valuations and are a great source of current values for your reference.
But always keep in mind these are all relative values & the real value is determined by market conditions at the time you decide to sell. The market always determines the real value.
Use PCGS Photograde™ Online
With PCGS Photograde™, you can obtain the approximate grade of your coin by comparing it to the photo that most closely matches its appearance. After you’ve done that, you can go to the PCGS Price Guide to get a ballpark idea of how much the coin is worth.
For a definition of each coin grade to help you decide what to look for, please refer to the PCGS Grading guide
… Yes, with emulation. EzCoin is a native PC application. But, you can run EzCoin on your MAC. You will need a program called Virtual PC, Parallels, SoftWindows or bootcamp which will allow you to run almost any PC application on your MAC. You will also need a copy of Windows (XP, Vista or Win 7/8/Win10). We currently have over 2000 MAC users running our software in this way with no problems at all. You should download a FREE demo of EzCoin to try on your MAC before you purchase.

Yes, we currently provide comprehensive databases for USA, Canada & the Canadian Provinces. We will be adding a comprehensive database for the UK (Great Britain) in the near future, but it is a lengthy process. All registered users will be notified when it is available. You can also check back on this web site periodically to see what is available.
 Not directly. EzCoin provides an innovative way to email dealers & friends your want & sell lists plus any inventory reports. A small applet called SnapView will allow anyone (even if they do not own a copy of EzCoin) to view the exact same report you generate in EzCoin on their screen. All they need to do is download and install a program we created called SnapView. Then simply email them the *.snp file (created in any EzCoin report) & they can open it & view it in SnapViewer. A link to the SnapView download is provided here. CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD SNAPVIEW
