PCGS Photograde
4.5 STARS out of 5

By far the easiest app to use for coin collecting. Pictures from the set of the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS). Clear photographs of the front and back of the coins. I never knew there were so many grades of each COPPER COINS, NICKEL COINS, SILVER and GOLD COINS.

I like the way the photos show the coin with the wear and grading symbol then click the gear and you get a link to what the symbol means. At the gear there are 3 links to further your knowledge of coin collecting. Easy for the beginner and get more information for the advanced collector.

CoinBook Pro: A Catalog of U.S. Coins - an app about money, dollar, cash and coin

By Adam Meszaros

4.5 STARS out of 5

CoinBook Pro is a catalog of United States coins. It contains prices for most U.S. coins and doesn't need a WiFi or 3G connection. The app is easy to navigate and even provides a guide for grading each coin. Hi-res obverse & reverse images are also included.

I haven’t tried this but this sounds like a great service. If you have a problem grading your coin they have an in-app mail system, so you send a picture and they appraise and identify for FREE. Limited to U.S. coins only.

If you are a real collector and have gold and silver coins and want to know the current melt value. This app has a calculator you can use. Sounds awesome to me but I don’t have coins to melt!
