I have been reading about the Moneta Coin Cataloging Software. It sounds like it might be useful. Has anyone here used it or heard anything good or bad about it?

I have done some reading on Moneta 2.0, and it appears to have the best feature-set of any package out there. If Moneta has an "Achilles heel", it would be the visual interface; it sorely needs an upgrade for that $90.

Hello, 1995.


As a tech guy and edu. software developer myself, I like the idea of cataloguing all my coins, particularly if there is a supplemental reference. But databases aren't my strong suit. My cheapo solution has been to post all my coins to my Flickr account, which is easily searchable by keyword--and I can link directly to online references, something which may not be possible with software.

I was thinking about trying to make some software a few times. Although, I noticed that most people use the web, Excel charts, older applications and the like.

I looked into this awhile back and thought it was too expensive for what it did. I made my own data base with MS Works that does pretty much the same thing and it didn't cost anything. Leaving my limited budget to buy coins with.

If I were to make such a application, I would consider making it free for home use only. Chances are that very few home users would purchase the software. Dealing with software protections is just a waste of time, in my opinion. A license that would state free for home use, commercial users must purchase a license. Of course there is nothing stopping any commercial users from using it for free.

I bought the Moneta software in 2004 and I do still using it.
For me it works fine and pretty fast I have about 900 coins in the database. $90,- is a lot money but I think you will not have any regrets.

To be honest I never heard about that Coin Software but it looks like it can be useful.
