A unique ID tag for each record is a good start, a description and photo area, whether or not coin is TPG graded and slabbed, by which service, variety sub set, date purchased as well as date sold and price paid profit/loss made (good for insurance if needed), report function included if possible.

Keep it simple. As a collection grows and grows, to many items to keep track of becomes useless. I used to have many columns in a spread sheet but with thousands of coins, what you have is all you'll ever need.

As your collection grows, you might consider a database (such as MS Access) instead of a spreadsheet.

My spreadsheet has scaled very well with my collection. However, ones mileage may vary and creating a true database is an option worthy of consideration.
