October 10th, 2017: Exact Change now includes a database of U.S. Patterns and Trial coinage.
The Pattern and Trial Coinage addition is a massive database on which we've been working for months now.  These are rare examples of rejected design concepts, experimental designs and compositions, and off metal strikes.  Even if your budget doesn't allow you to file away these rare or unique pieces, you'll certainly find the database to be a fascinating museum of what might have been.  To add pattern coinage to your collection, download the price list for this database.  Doing so will cause "Pattern Coinage" to appear as a new option under "North America" in the program's "Add Countries" menu.

October 10th, 2017: Exact Change now includes a database of Medals and Tokens
The medals and tokens database adds bronze medals from the U.S. Mint (also known as "List Medals") as well as privately issued tokens such as the oil company tokens which were a popular collectable in the late 1960's and Crackerjacks price tokens from the 1930s.  This database differs from the "Private Issues" database, which focuses on money alternatives such as California Fractional gold pieces. Of course, a database of medals and tokens could go on without end, so we've focused on notable series of tokens and we anticipate that this database will continue to grow; if you have a token or medal that you think should be included in the database, please contact us. To add medals and tokens to your collection, download the price list for this database.  Doing so will cause "Medals and Tokens" to appear as a new option under "North America" in the program's "Add Countries" menu.


October 10th, 2017: Exact Change now includes the island of Anguilla
The smallest of the new database additions is the coinage from the island nation of Anguilla which briefly operated as an independent "Republic of Anguilla" and produced it's own coinage in between 1968 and 1970.   To add Anguilla to your collection, download the price list for this database.  Doing so will cause "Anguilla" to appear as a new option under "Central America" in the program's "Add Countries" menu.


October 10th, 2017: Exact Change now includes the island of Niue
The Island of Niue is a prolific issuer of new coinage designs from government and private mints around the world.  With a population of less that 1600, the number of distinct coin designs means that every Niuean could have a Niue coin in their possession without any two having the same design. This makes it very difficult to keep up with the coinage of Niue, but we've built an extensive representation of these coins.  Of course, if you happen to have a coin from Niue that we've not yet included, we'd really like to hear from you.  To add Niue to your collection, download the price list for this database.  Doing so will cause "Niue" to appear as a new option under "Oceania" in the program's "Add Countries" menu.


October 10th, 2017: The Wild Man Software office is open following the tubbs fire.
The Tubbs fire, which burned  36,432 acres is now 92% contained and this evening we got some much-needed rain.  A week ago we loaded the entire office in preparation for evacuation as the flames were visible from our doorway and the Sheriff issued an advisory evacuation.  We're once again set up and we'll be posting a series of database, price list and program updates over the next few days.


July  28th, 2017: There is a new addition to the world coin database
 

 

Wild Man Software is pleased to announce a new addition to the world coin database; the small south pacific island nation of Palau.  If you download the price list for Palau (You’ll find it under Coins of Oceana) that will add Palau to the “Add countries” menu as well as the list of countries for which you can download images. 

 

 


July  10th, 2017: There is a new version of exact change for Windows

Microsoft released a Windows 10 update which conflicted with the PDF engine used by Exact Change.  To resolve the issue, we replaced the entire PDF engine in this update.  The Macintosh update will follow shortly, but the Windows update was pushed ahead because the Microsoft patch caused some people to be unable to load the program.

Because this update includes the new PDF engine, the update process is slightly different from typical program updates.  Rather than just downloading the changed files, this update process will download an run an installation program which will install the update.

Polygon Coins Tool
If you collect many odd-shaped coins, you've probably discovered that Polygon shapes present some unique challenges.  For example, calculating the right size of circular plastic capsule can be difficult.  The polygon tool (available in the "Tools" menu) takes just one measurement and the number of sides.  It will then provide you with more information that you could possibly want to know about the measurements of that coin.

Improved import format
The import function will now automatically insert quote marks around any field if they're needed.  The standards for comma-delimited files requires quotes around any field that contains a space; that can be a really inconvenient formatting requirement.  The import function will now intelligently handle that for you, inserting quote marks as needed. 

"Configure Coin List" settings
A couple of settings related to the appearance of the table on the "Coins" page have been moved to the new "Configure coin list" menu option in the "Display" menu.  The "View" filter, which used to appear at the bottom of the "Coins" page, is now in this menu option.  The view filter is used to hide from view certain coins such as coins you've sold or coins that are just on your "Want" list. The ability to set the font size of the table on the "Coins" page has also been moved to this menu option.

Improved "Find Text" function
The speed of the "Find text" function has been greatly improved  Specifically, searching through coin descriptions for a specific phrase could previously have resulted in a long search, but that is no longer the case.  In addition, this function searches additional fields such as user-defined fields.

New coin shapes and metallic compositions added
Three new coin shapes are now included to more accurately depict the various shapes which modern coinage may assume.  Also, seven additional metallic compositions have been added as we've found new compositions while expanding the world coin database.


March 29th, 2017: There is a new version of exact change for both Windows and Macintosh.

New "Update this series" menu option
The pop-up menu that appears when you right-click on any series now has a new menu option labeled "Update this series".  This is a powerful new tool for keeping up-to-date on the latest new coin releases or, really, any coin type that's recently been added to the Exact Change database.  When you click on this menu option, Exact Change will review the series, comparing it to the latest release of the Exact Change database and then it will add in any new or missing series and it will sort all the series within the selected series so that it entirely matches the layout of the default database.  The net effect is the same as if you'd just added the country in question for the first time.  In other words, it will add in any missing series within the series you selected and it will also sort those sub-series into their default order.

Faster Series Editor
The functionality that involves adding or moving of any series within the series editor has been modified to greatly enhance it's speed.  This quickens the process of loading particularly large collection files but the place where it's perhaps most self evident is when pasting series from one collection to another.  While that paste function used to be a rather laborious task (there's actually a lot more going on the background than just adding in those series) this is now pretty much a click-and-your-done process.

New Content types added
In order to accommodate the forthcoming U.S. Pattern Coinage database, we've added fourteen new options to the list of materials that can be designated for a coin's contents.  Materials such as Goloid, Lead and Oroide were used to create experimental pieces so this options will now appear in the list of metals to choose from when creating or editing a price list entry.

New Thai date converter functionality
The database of coinage from Thailand has been extended back in time to include traditional coinage of Siam.  This means that it now covers coins that are dated according to the Chula-Sakarat (CS) and Ratanakosindsok (RS) eras as well at the Buddhist Era (BE) calendar that's currently in use.  Because of this, the Thai date converter has been enhanced to convert dates from any of these dating systems.  Since these calendars were not used concurrently, the Thai date converter is able to automatically select the appropriate calendar for any date you select.  For example, 1887AD will convert to 1249CS while 1888AD will convert to 107RS because the coinage of Thailand switched calendars between 1887 and 1888.

New "Track all coins in report bin" menu option
This new menu option appears under "Coin Tracking" in the "Tools" menu.  It will mark any coins that are currently in the report bin as "Tracked".  This menu option balances the existing menu option which adds any tracked coins to the report bin.  Having both options enables you to move coins between the search results (tracked coins) and the report bin.

New report editor features
The report editor for the windows edition now allows for data to be sorted on user-defined fields.  The report editor for the Macintosh edition now has two new buttons that enable you to scroll through each of the components on the selected band, making it easier to select a component that's sitting behind another component.  There's also a new manual for the Macintosh report editor available here.

New Hint Bar functionality
The hint bar at the bottom of the main window has been enhanced; on the Macintosh edition the hint bar is entirely new (because the tabs are at the top of the window, it just didn't fit in nicely).  The bar now has the ability to display a progress meter for any process that take a bit of time.  Most users won't even notice the progress bar, but if, for example, you're loading a particularly huge collection file, it will let you know how that process is coming along.


We’re currently developing a database of coin-operated arcade game tokens, an ambitious task considering the number of video arcades that once occupied strip malls across the country.  To that end, we’re asking everyone to please consider checking your junk box and scanning an image of any you may have, in order to help us build a comprehensive image library of these tokens.  Images can be sent to WildMan@ExactChange.Info

 


 

Wild Man Software has just released the new database of state issued tax tokens; the first in a series of new databases which cumulatively cover items ranging from exceedingly rare pattern coinage to junk-box arcade tokens.

Given the current value of a dollar, it’s hard to imagine that from the Mid-1930’s until the early 1950’s, several states were concerned about collecting the sales tax of a fraction of a cent that is typically rounded off.  To that end, they created tokens denominated in “Mils” (tenths of a cent) so that proper change could be made when a fraction of a cent’s worth of sales tax was paid.

To add these tax tokens to your collection database, just download the price list for “United States Tax Tokens” (Click on “Download current price lists” in the “Tools” menu).    Once that’s done, you’ll be able download images of these tokens (Click on “Check for image updates” in the “Tools” menu) and to add the tokens to your collection (Click on “Add Countries” in the “File Menu” on Windows systems or the “Exact Change” menu on Macintosh systems).

The Database includes images of nearly all of the various types of tokens that were issued, but there are a few missing yet.  If you happen to have a tax token that we’ve not yet included, we’d really like to hear from you!


 

January 29th, 2017: There is a new version of exact change for both Windows and macintosh.

The image library now includes over 3000 German notgeld images and the database has been extended to include additional types and varieties.  Because this database has grown so much in size, the new version of Exact Change allocates an additional thousand series numbers for these coins.  Notgeld collectors, therefore, will want to download the program update so that it recognizes these new types.

Bullion coinage of several countries has been updated and reorganized for clarity.  Particularly China, Australia, Great Britain and Canada. 

The price list now now supports the selecting of a range of columns and/or rows; one change then effects all the selected price list entries.

 


November 22ND, 2016: There is a new version of exact change for both Windows and macintosh.

Wild Man Software is pleased to announce the addition of a comprehensive database of German Municipal Notgeld ("Emergency Money") tokens.  Thousands of designs were issued by cities across Germany in the final years of the First World War and into the 1920's.   Until now, there has been very little reference material for identifying and cataloging these items available to anyone not fluent in German.

Mark Whitmore and Webb Garlinghouse have both generously provided us with a large number of images to accompany the Notgeld database.  In order to make this the most complete reference available, we're asking anyone with access to an unimaged notgeld token to consider scanning an image of each side and sending them to us for inclusion in the image library.  Even if you're unable to identify what you have; we will work to properly identify it and provide you with that information.  If you're not familiar with German notgeld, most were issued between 1917 and 1923 and the majority where stuck in zinc or iron, or cast in porcelain, with a smaller number stuck in aluminum and a very few struck in other metals.  Often (certainly not always) a notgeld token will display the word "Stadt" (meaning "City").  For example, the coin in the image at left is from the City of Fulda (in the German province of Hesse-Nassau)

To add German notgeld to your collection, you'll need to first download the latest program update which, as always, is available at no charge to Exact Change users.  We had previously added a limited selection of notgeld tokens under "Germany" but this new database appears as a separate county, much as "German States" is listed as a separate country from "Germany".  This enables you to add just the coins that interest you.  If you have the selection of notgeld coins listed within Germany, you'll probably want to delete those series as the newer, more comprehensive database supersedes that.


The text color used  to display the name of any coin series can now be individually customized, enabling you to color-code coin series however you'd like.  In the new Notgeld Database, we used this new feature to display the names of German provinces in red while the names of cities are listed in black (as shown in the image at right).  This is one example, but you can change the color of any series as you wish. Right-click on any series and select "Properties" to change the font color used for that series. 

 


 

September 1st, 2016: The Exact Change Image library has been updated

There are now more than sixty thousand images of coins and notes from around the world included in the Exact Change image library.  Any Exact Change user can download images for any countries that are of interest (or just download every country if you so choose). Just click on "Check for updates"  in the "Tools" menu.

A lot of Exact Change users have provided images for the latest image library update.  We'd like to thank everyone who sent in images and acknowledge the extraordinary contributions of some in particular...

Mark Whitmore
Mark has sent images of coins from around the globe.  His help was instrumental in the coverage of Australian coins and the German Notgeld listings are almost exclusively his contribution.  He's provided around a thousand  images of coinage from Afghanistan to Zindorf and we are truly grateful for his extensive and persistent contributions to the image library.

Wayne Corbin
Wayne has sent hundreds of images of Australian coins, as well as images of coins from many other countries.  Australia presents a particular challenge because of the number of new coin designs being released and so his contributions in that regard are truly appreciated.

Darrell Brown
Darrell took the time to create and send to us a DVD with paper money images, and for that we are very grateful.


August 30th, 2016: There is a new version of exact change for both Windows and macintosh.
 

The "Favorites" menu now includes a list of the ten most recently used series.  This provides a quick way to return to a coin type that you've recently been looking at.  Any time you select a coin series and click on the "Coins" tab, that series will automatically be added to the list of recent series. 

The database has been greatly expanded, and additional series numbers have been allocated for some countries such as Australia, Canada and China which produce large numbers of coin designs.   That means this update will enable you to access the expanded size price lists for those countries.

The Macintosh edition now includes the very same data-import feature that the Windows edition has.  At the time that the Macintosh edition was released, there were no notable coin programs for the Mac.  So, the import routine was deemed unnecessary.  However, some people have expressed a desire to import date from spreadsheets, so the import routine is no included.

As was done with Korean paper money in the last update, Korean coins have now been rearranged so that both North and South Korea appear under "Korea",. along with earlier political entities "Kingdom (-1902)", "Russian Domination (1896-1904)" and "Japanese Protectorate (1905-1945)".


February 12th, 2016: There is a new version of exact change for both Windows and macintosh.
 

PCGS CoinFacts is a registered trademark of Collectors Universe.

    ❶ The PCGS CoinFacts field, which can be used to quickly access PCGS information for any coins in your collection, has been updated to accommodate some changes in the PCGS web site.  PCGS has made this service free of charge now, so any Exact Change user can take advantage of this functionality.

     In addition, the PCGS CoinFacts field is now smarter; you can enter the entire number from your PCGS slab, or just the first numbers up to the period (or anything in between) and it will still connect to the proper page on the PCGS web site.

     We've received some inquiries about how the PCGS CoinFacts field works.  Once you add a user-defined PCGS CoinFacts field to your collection, you'll see an extra box on the "Coins" page...

         

     Just set the "Graded by" box to either "NGC" or "PCGS" and enter the number that appears on your coin's certified slab in the CoinFacts box.  Thereafter, you can just click the little button on the right side of the CoinFacts box and your browser will open to the page that pertains to your slab.  The above example is a 1940-D wheat cent with a grade modifier of "Red", so the web browser displays exactly that information from the PCGS site.  If you set the "Graded by" box to "NGC", the NGC site will be displayed; it shows a picture of your slabbed coin in order for you to verify it's cerification.

     ❷ The eBook feature has been enhanced to provide SmartBook compatibility.  In the past, configuring the eBook feature was somewhat cumbersome because it required a PDF file from your Krause catalog DVD as well as a matching eBook file which was available from this web site and both of those files had to have the same file name so that the program could ascertain which two files go together.  Now, the eBook file and PDF file no longer need to share the same name. The program can match the two regardless of their names; even if you choose to change the name of either or both files.      

     Because the old eBook files don't support this SmartBook technology, the newest release of Exact Change will ignore old eBook files.  There are updated versions of the eBook files for almost all the eBooks we've published available here.  Once you update to the latest release, you'll need to download the new eBook files.

     ❸ There are some changes to the paper money database:

               ▪ In order to accurately detail Korean paper money from before World War II, we've combined issues from North Korea and South Korea and added in the earlier issues.  This is consistent with the way other countries such as Germany and Czechoslovakia are partitioned into sub-categories to reflect various historical periods.     

               ▪ The layout for paper money of Brazil has been reorganized and extended back further in time.  The new layout is clearer and less cluttered.  If you've already added paper money of Brazil to your collection, this change will not effect your current collection.
 


In addition to the program update, new price lists have been posted.  By downloading the latest price lists, you'll get listings for 2016 coins as well as new coin types such as the Mark Twain commemorative coins, National Park Service 100th commemorative coins, and the new Code Talkers dollar.

     We'd like to thank Mark Whitmore, Wayne Corbin and Darrell Brown for supplying images.  Their help is greatly appreciated as we continue to expand the Exact Change image library.  We're in the process of posting the new library now and will have an additional 1500 images available in the next few days. If you have a coin that we've not imaged, we'd really like to hear from you.  It may be a valuable coin or just something common.  Any series in the Exact Change database that covers two or more KM numbers is a series we'd like to split apart.  So, perhaps you have a coin that's listed but is slightly different from the image show in Exact Change?  If so, getting a scanned image of that coin would allow us to enhance the detail of the Exact Change database whether that coins is a rarity or something in your miscellaneous box.


PCGS has announced that their PCGS CoinFacts™ web service will be available at no charge as of February 3rd, 2016. Exact Change has a user-defined field that directly interfaces Exact Change with the CoinFacts™ web site; a click of a button in Exact Change will take you right to the PCGS information for any coin in your collection.  While that used to require a $149 annual CoinFacts™ membership; any Exact Change user will now be able to take advantage of that functionality at no charge.
 


October 30th, 2015: There is a new version of exact change for both Windows and macintosh.
More than five thousand images have been added to the Exact Change image library.  This includes new and previously unimaged coins and notes from just about every country.

Coverage of Chinese paper money has been extended to the early 20th century.  During that time, countless banks each issued their own Chinese currency so it's an enormous field.  While we've not covered every bank, it is an impressive catalog of the most active banks.  Because so many Chinese paper money types have been added, we actually ran out of the series numbers that were allocated for China.  So, the new program update allocates twice as many series numbers for China.  For that reason, if you include Chinese paper money in your collection, you'll want to download the latest program update. Paper money of Brazil has been reorganized and extended back into the late 19th century; the new way in which Brazilian notes are laid out is much easier to navigate  Additionally, coverage of Turkish paper money has been extended back to include Ottoman Empire issues of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.


October 12th, 2015:
 

Wild Man Software is now open following the Valley Fire.

On September 12th, the "Valley Fire" burned much of Middletown California, destroying 1,950 buildings and leaving us without power for nearly a month.  We pride ourselves on responsive technical support and sincerely apologize to anyone who's questions or product orders have gone unanswered as we sorted through this mess.  For more information about the Valley Fire, click here. 


April 18th, 2015: There is minor update for Windows users.
An update has been posted to correct an anomaly with the Grade box on the Coins page.  This issue did not affect the Macintosh edition.


February 24th, 2015: There is a new version of exact change for both Windows and macintosh.
Exact Change has a new feature which enables you to specify currency exchange rates so that the price lists reflect values in the local currency.  For example, Australian users can now view the price list in Australian dollars and European users can view pricing information based on Euros.  Click on the new "Exchange Rates" menu option in the "Tools" menu to set the local exchange rate.

In the “Tools” menu is a new menu option titled “Setup Exchange rates” which can be used to calibrate Exact Change’s price lists to the local currency  for any users who prefer pricing in a currency other than U.S. Dollars.

Click on a country to select that as your local currency (the selected currency is highlighted in blue).  Then enter the amount that the local currency is valued in U.S. dollars or the  amount in local currency that equates to a U.S. Dollar.  All that’s really important is the ratio between the two.  For example, you can indicate that a British Pound is worth 1.54 U.S. Dollars or that one U.S. Dollar is worth .65 Pounds.

Once you set the exchange rate, coin values will automatically be adjusted any time you download a new price list.  If your local currency is the U.S. Dollar then there’s no need to set up  the exchange rate.  It’s not necessary to enter the exchange rates for any countries other than your own.

 The bullion Values Calculator has a new tab labeled "Purity".  On this tab you'll find a handy little tool to calculate the total weight of a coin, the purity of the coin or it's precious metal content.  When any two of these values are provided, Exact Change will calculate the third

 

Macintosh users will notice some changes to the menus; most of the menu icons have been removed in order to provide a more "Mac-style" feel .  The only exception is the "Add countries" menu icons which were deemed to be far too cool to get rid of.  Several menu options have been moved from the "File" menu to the application menu in order to adhere to Mac standards.  Mac users who have greatly modified any price lists should back up their price list changes and the Mac installation program will overwrite the price list files.

 


February 24th, 2015: The Exact Change image library has been updated with an additional 2000 images
A lot of new coin types have been added, as well as extended coverage of  early 20th century Chinese paper money.  Once again we'd like to thank Mark Whitmore and Webb Garlinghouse who have been supplying an incredible number of images for the image library.


November 30th, 2014: The Exact Change image library has been updated with an additional 1000 images
The 2015 United States coins have been added to the Exact Change database, including the 2015  U.S. Marshals Service 225th Half, Dollar and five dollar gold commemorative as well as the 2015 March of Dimes commemorative silver dollar.

October 13th, 2014: The Exact Change image library now contains over 50,000 images
Once again we'd like to thank Mark Whitmore, Web Garlinghouse, Wayne Corbin and Klaas van Sloten, all of whom have contributed so many images that we're still processing quite a number of them and will be adding those additional images in the next couple of weeks. 

We're currently undertaking the addition of paper money from early 20th century China (1900-1949).  The coverage of Mexican paper money includes private bank issues from before the Mexican Civil War and we're now endeavoring to fill in the gap by including civil war issues.  Both of these areas include an enormous number of diverse issues so if you have an example of any of these notes and can provide an image for the image library, we'd really like to hear from you.

We've added paper money from Timor, Isle of Man, Tunisia, Faeroe Islands (under Denmark), Botswana, Danzig (under Poland), Papua New Guinea, Mauritius, Ethiopia, Northern Ireland, Samoa, Andorra, Monaco and Saint Helena.  If you click on "Download current price lists" in the "Tools" menu, you can download the price lists for these countries and they'll appear in the list of countries which you can choose to add to your collection.


July 24th, 2014: A new program update is available for Macintosh users.
There Macintosh update includes the Ethiopian date converter as well as a "Menu shortcuts" item (under Options in the File menu).  The Menu Shortcuts option enables you to specify keyboard shortcuts to menu items so that you can access a menu option easily with whatever key press you select.

There's a new option the the "Save" menu titled "Create a backup file".  This option simply saves your collection file to whatever location you wish, without changing which file you're currently editing.  For example, if you're editing your collection which you loaded from your hard drive and you were to save that collection on a flash drive, the the currently open file would be the copy on the flash drive.  The "Create a  backup file" function lets you save a copy of your collection onto the flash drive while you're still editing the collection file stored on your hard drive.

The Macintosh edition of Exact Change can now be opened by clicking on an Exact Change data file.  for example., if you save your collection file on your desktop then you can just click on that data file; this will launch Exact Change and the program will open that data file without the usual prompt to select which collection file you'd like to open.

July 24th, 2014:  There are new price lists, images and countries available
There are now roughly 49,000 images in the Exact Change image library; they're available for Windows or Mac users.  The database now includes paper money from Liberia, Belize, Kenya, Gambia, Cape Verde, Fiji, Swaziland Seychelles, Namibia, Mauritius, Tonga, Morocco and the Solomon Islands.  If you click on "Download current prices lists" in the "Tools" menu, you can download the new prices lists.  Once that's done, you'll see the above countries are automatically added to the "Add countries" menu.

The "Check for image updates" menu option will let you select any countries for which you'd like to download images.  Remember that the "Suggest" button on that window will automaticlly select just those countries for which there are new images available.

July 16th, 2014:  The Windows 64-bit version of Exact Change is now available.
The 64-bit version is file-compatible with the 32-bit version or Macintosh edition of Exact Change so it's easy (and free) to upgrade.  The latest release of the Exact Change DVD automatically detects weather your computer is running a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows and will install the correct version for your operating system.  If you purchased the digital download and would like to switch to the 64-bit version, just drop us an email and we'll send you a link and instructions.  Note that downloading an update will not switch you from the 32-bit program to the 64-bit program; the update process installs the latest release of whichever program you're currently using.  To move from the 32-bit version to the 64-bit version, you'll need to install the 64-bit program but there is no charge for licensed Exact Change users.

There is also a program update for the 32-bit version of Exact Change.  Both of the windows versions have the same features and will continue to have the same version number.  The update includes an Ethiopian date converter for people who collect coins or paper money from Ethiopia.  The report engine and PDF engine have been upgraded in the latest release.


April 14th, 2014:  The Exact Change image library has been updated with an additional 2000 images.
There are now 47,000 images in the Exact Change image Library.  In addition, if you click on "Download current price lists", Exact Change will add paper money from Tanzania, Bangladesh, French West Africa, Malawi, Mali, Qatar, Jersey, Guernsey, Bhutan and Nigeria.  The coverage of Russian paper money has been extended to include issues of the Russian Revolution.


January 17th, 2014:  A new program update is available for both the Windows and Macintosh editions of Exact Change.

There are now over 45,000 images in the Exact Change image Library.  Once again we'd like to thank Mark Whitmore, Web Garlinghouse and Wayne Corbin for providing images.  If you happen to have a coin or note that has not yet been included in the Exact Change database, please consider scanning an image of each side and sending it in.

The Windows Edition uses a new program registration process.  By replacing a third party registration process with one of our own design, we were able to achieve 64-bit compatibility and greater control over the flow of the registration process.  Because we replaced the entire registration process, the program will require you to register online after you complete the update.

On both the Windows and Macintosh editions, there is a whole new process for updating price lists.  Rather than grouping them in with program updates, a new option in the "Tools" menu titled "Download Current Price Lists" enables you to select the countries for which you'd like to download price lists (much like the "Check for image updates" feature).  When you click on this menu option, Exact Change will take a moment to download all the price lists and then you'll be given the opportunity to select the countries you want updated.  In this same process, Exact Change will download information about new coin types and even any new countries that have been added.  Your existing price files will be backed up in a zip file before any are overwritten.

The Windows edition now stores Prices in the "My Documents" directory in order to adhere to the security requirements of Windows 7 and 8.  When you start Exact Change, it will automatically copy your existing price files to the new location.  Some people were reporting an "Access denied" message when saving price files because they used to be stored in the "Program Files" directory and those users didn't have write privileges to that directory.

The Macintoch edition has two updates that were added to the Windows edition in the last update.  User defined fields are now included in the table at the top of the "Coins" page; you can now search and sort the table based on your user defined fields just as you can for any of the standard fields.  In the "Options" menu (under "File") is an new menu item labeled "Coin Grid Font Size" which provides the opportunity to set the size of the font on the "Coins" table.

There is a new version of the report editor in the Windows Edition; the program stores its settings and preferences in a new location because, on some Windows machines, windows would deny the program access to write this information in the Program Files directory.

The Macintosh Edition now has an "Export to CSV file" option in the "File" menu.  This new feature enables you to select the information that you'd like to export and then export that data. In the Windows Edition, this is accomplished by running the :report named "Export to CSV file".

 Paper money of Tatarstan, Singapore, Dominican Republic Saint Thomas & Prince, Uganda, Sri Lanka, Gibraltar, Equatorial Guinea and Vanuatu have been added to the Exact Change database, as well as coinage of the Turks & Caicos Islands and milled coinage of the Indian Princely States.

The format of the Exact Change Import file has been changed based on observations and feedback received as we've worked with former ProCoin users to import their data into Exact Change.
     •
Comments are now allowed in the import file; any text that appears after a double slash // will be ignored.
     • A new import field allows for the importing of Grade Modifiers
     • Grades can now be imported with much simpler descriptive text such as "EF-45". 
        We've attempted to parse all the reasonable variations in use such as "XF-45", "EF45" and "XF45".
     • "Date purchased" is now an optional field as it is throughout the Exact Change program.

 

November 24th, 2013:  A new program update is available for both the Windows and Macintosh editions of Exact Change.
    
Wild Man software is pleased to announce the release of the latest Exact Change program update!

The update includes over 3000 new imagesWe'd like to thank Mark Whitmore and Web Garlinghouse, both of whom spent a lot of time and effort scanning and sending these images.  Just about every day Mark sent a long series of emails with coin images and Web used the upload manager to send hundreds of images.  We'd also like to thank Wayne Corbin who keeps us up to date on all the coinage of Australia.   Their contributions are greatly appreciated.

We'd also like to than Rosalee and Ed for proofing the program, from report descriptions to price lists.

The database for many countries have been extended and coins of the Turks & Caicos Islands have been added, as well as paper money from Thailand, Comoros, Ghana, Cook Islands. Liechtenstein, Brunei, Cyprus, Maldives, French Indochina, French Pacific Territories, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, French Equatorial Africa, Falkland Islands, Scotland, Malaysia, Mauritania and Malta.

The windows edition also includes the same Welcome screen as the Macintosh edition; this windows makes your options for selecting a coin database much clearer.

In the Windows edition, the grid on the "Coins" page now displays any user-defined fields. To accomplish this, each collection file not holds all the information about column order and column widths (on the "Coins" table) because different collection files that you open may have different user-defined fields.  In the past, changing the column order effected any collection file you opened.  Because of this, the columns will default to their standard order and widths when you first open a collection file created with an earlier version.

The Macintosh edition now contains a magnifier like the Windows edition does.  Click on one of the images on the "Series" tab to view a large display of that coin image.  If you wave the mouse over this image, the magnifier will zoom in on the area around the mouse cursor.  The magnifier in the Windows edition has been improved as well; it now magnifies from the original image instead of magnifying the screen so it provides clearer detail.

The Macintosh edition has new reports which include more totals and other changes requested by Mac users.

The Windows edition has a new menu option names "Coin list font size", it's under "Options" in the "File" menu.  With this, you can select the size of the font used on the coin grid (the table on the "Coins" page).  Select the small squeeze more data onto the screen at once or a larger font for greater visibility.


May 25th, 2013:  A new program update is available for both the Windows and Macintosh editions of Exact Change.
    
Wild Man software is pleased to announce the release of the latest Exact Change program update!

The update includes 4000 additional images, ten percent more than the previous release.  It also includes improved images of about 1000 coins and notes. 

For collectors of Canadian and Mexican paper money, the update includes Private, Chartered and State Bank issues of the late 19th and early 20th century.  The update also adds paper money from Greenland, South Africa, Albania, East Africa, El Salvador, Syria and Madagascar

Windows user can download the update by clicking "Check for updates" in the "Tools" menu in Exact Change.

Macintosh users will see a pop-up window when they run Exact Change, providing them the opportunity to download the update.  Once the update is downloaded, you should run the file to install the new version of the program.  If you don't see the pop-up notification about the available update, you may be running the very first release of the Macintosh edition.  In that case, you can download the update via the link in the email you received or contact us and we'll send you a link.

We'd like to thank Mark Whitmore has provided hundreds of new images, often sending a bunch of images each day, day after day.  We're very grateful for this contribution to the Exact Change image library.

We'd also like to thank Wayne Corbin of Australia has been providing images of many Australian coins on an ongoing basis and this update includes many such images.  His contribution has help us build upon the Australian database; a country that can be very difficult to keep up with new releases.


February 2oth, 2013:  A trial version of the Macintosh edition of Exact change is now available for download.
The trial version provides the opportunity to take Exact Change for a test drive on your Macintosh.  The trial version is available in the Downloads section of this web site.


December 22nd, 2012:  A new program update is available for both the Windows and Macintosh editions of Exact Change.
    
Wild Man software is pleased to announce the release of the latest Exact Change program update!

The new update includes more than 2000 additional images in the image library.  There are many new coin types included in the database and we've added paper money from the Cayman Islands, Finland, Aruba, Luxembourg, Hong Kong, Sweden, Norway, Libya, Bahrain, Iceland and Ireland.

The update includes price list entries for 2013 coinage as well as the preliminary designs for the Girl Scout centenary and 5 star general commemoratives.

Mark Whitmore provided a lot of new images including all of the 2012 Russian 2 and 5 rouble series commemorating the war of 1812, a large variety of 2 Euro commemoratives, and a variety of other coins from around the world.

Wayne Corbin of Australia has been providing images of many Australian coins on an ongoing basis and this update includes many such images.

Peter Thomas of Australia provided a revised price list for Australia which includes a lot of changes and additional varieties.  It also includes pricing for pre-decimal coinage (in Australian dollars).

The update for the Macintosh edition of Exact Change includes a new update manager which will automatically notify you whenever a new release is available; a pop-up message will appear when the program starts to notify you.

 


October 30th, 2012:  A new program update is available for Macintosh users
    
Wild Man software is pleased to announce the release of the latest Exact Change program update!

The update for the Macintosh edition of Exact Change includes a change to better address split pricing, where the value of an coin in an intermediate grade is calculated based on the values for the surrounding grades.

When a collection file is saved, Exact Change keeps a backup of the file for data redundancy.  Some users encountered a problem because the directory in which that backup was stored  may be marked as a read-only (if the backup directory was created when the user didn't have access rights to create a read/write directory).  To that end, two changes were made.  If you don't have access to write to the backup directory or the directory in which you're attempting to save your collection file, the program will tell you so with a much more descriptive message rather then the rather cryptic error message that was previously displayed.  In addition, the program now defaults to storing collection files in the user's Documents directory rather than the library.  After updating, your collection file will still be located in the Library\Exact Change directory but when you go to save it, the program will default to saving it in the new location.

To download the update, just click on the link in the email which you received from Wild Man Software.  If you no longer have that email, just let us know and we're resend it to you.


October 8th, 2012:  The Macintosh edition of Exact Change is now available
    
Wild Man software is pleased to announce the release of the latest Exact Change program update!

The Macintosh version of Exact Change is a native Macintosh application, not a windows program running under an emulator.  Yet, it's file compatible with the Windows version.  So, you can share collection information between a Macintosh and a Windows PC.  The Macintosh edition is functionally similar to the Windows edition; there are some minor differences but the basic program flow is identical.  The Macintosh edition makes full use of the extensive Exact Change database and image library.

The Macintosh edition is available as a digital download; the DVD option will be available in the near future. The manual for the Macintosh edition is available online.

October 8th, 2012:  A new program update is available for Windows users
    
Wild Man software is pleased to announce the release of the latest Exact Change program update!

The update includes a change to the country databases that come with Exact Change.  The purpose of this change was to maintain compatibility between the Windows and Macintosh versions of Exact Change.   So, if you've downloaded the last update and you're not a multi-platform user, you may decide to forgo this update since the last update was posted just two weeks ago.  This update will also be of interest to world paper money collectors.  It includes a lot of new notes which constitute part of the more than 2000 images that have just bee added to the Exact Change image library.


September 14th, 2012:  A new program update is available
    
Wild Man software is pleased to announce the release of the latest Exact Change program update!

The update includes enhancements to the Image Repository feature that was introduced in the previous update.  Thanks to everyone who provided the feedback which allowed us to enhance that feature.  When you select a directory as the image repository, Exact Change will now give you the option of folding images that are already in that directory into the image repository.  Also, the Images tab will now indicate whether an image is in the repository (look at the file name which appears along the left edge of the window.

An additional 2000 images have been added to the Exact Change image library and many new coin types have been added.  After downloading the update, be sure to click on "Check for image updates" to download whichever new images interest you.


July 10th, 2012:  A new program update is available
    
Wild Man software is pleased to announce the release of the latest Exact Change program update!

The update includes new coin types and additional images.  Thanks again to Wayne Corbin of Australia who has been sending images of Australian coinage on an ongoing basis, to Klaas van Sloten of the Netherlands Antilles who supplied images of a variety commemorative coins from the Netherlands Antilles and to Dick Rogers of the United States.

The update includes a new feature called the "Image Repository" which is basically a shared folder that can be used to share images between two or more machines.  Any images stored in the repository can easily be shared or moved to other locations.  For more information about the Image Repository, click here

The update includes some discrete changes to support compatibility with the new Macintosh version of Exact Change (changes in the way floating point numbers are stored).  This is a change that nobody will notices but it's important because files created in with the new release of Exact Change (collection files, price list files and so forth) can be shared between the Windows Version and Macintosh versions of Exact Change,  

 

April 17th, 2012:  A new program update is available
    
Wild Man software is pleased to announce the release of the latest Exact Change program update!

There are now more that 30,000 images in the Exact Change image library.  We've added paper money from Uruguay, Serbia, Denmark, Guinea and Switzerland.  Several countries now extend further back in time; the Vatican coinage now extend back to the Papal States, Spanish paper money now extends back an additional half century, additional Arab Emirates have been added, and much more.

Thanks again to Wayne Corbin of Australia who has been sending images of Australian coinage on an ongoing basis.  He also helped us revise the structure for Australian coinage to improve the layout of these coin types.

There is a new "Clone" button on the price page which duplicates the selected price column.  This makes it much easier to add prices to the column because it copies the details such as metallic content and weight.

We've done a major restructuring on German States coinage in preparation for extending this diverse collecting area back further in time (it presently extends back to about 1800).  The images under Italian States are divided into separate directories (there's a folder for images from each Italian State) while the images for German States coinage was all included in a single directory.  In this update, we separated each German State into it's own directory.  This is much more organized but if your collection includes German States coinage, there are a couple of extra steps in this update.  If this applies to you, please email us after installing the update for more information.

 


February 18th, 2012:  A new program update is available
    
Wild Man software is pleased to announce the release of the latest Exact Change program update!

There are now more than 29,500 images in the Exact Change image library.  Click on "Check for updates" to download images for any country you wish.  Thanks again to Wayne Corbin of Australia who has been sending images of Australian coinage on an ongoing basis.  Thanks also to Klaas van Sloten of the Netherlands Antilles who continues to send images of Central and South American coins and paper money.  We'd also like to thank Jim Widzinski who supplied images for quite a number of Canadian coins and Bo Fritzen who supplied images of Danish coins and paper money.  If we've missed anyone here, please let us know.

New coin and paper money types have been added for a range of countries.  In addition, paper money of Austria and New Zealand have been added to the database.

Each of the date converts has new functionality; a new "Dates in this series" tab on each date converter displays all of the dates within the currently selected series.  This is helpful in identifying foreign dates because the display shows all of the dates you may see on a given coin in the character format in which they would appear on that coin. 

The Help menu that appears at the top of the Exact Change window has been renamed "Tools" to more accurately reflect the variety of useful collecting tools contained in that menu.

The new "National Bank List" option in the Tools menu provides a list of all 13,765 National Bank charters which may appear on United States National Bank notes.  Click on any of the column headers on this list to sort the banks by charter number, City, State, County or bank name.

The Populate button on the Prices page has been changed so that, when populating a series that utilizes a user-defined grade scale, the options for the default grade reflect the grades within that user-defined grade scale.

 

 

 


December 15th, 2011:  A new program update is available
    
Wild Man software is pleased to announce the release of the latest Exact Change program update!

The pull-out display on the right side of the coins page shows thumbnail images of the coin that is currently selected.  In this update we've added special functionality for the State Quarters, America The Beautiful quarters, Presidential dollars, 5 ounce quarters, and the new First Day Cover series for State Quarters and Presidential Dollars.

If you add a coin to your collection but you don't attach any images to it, Exact Change will now display the stock images of that coin type.  For example, if you add a New Jersey quarter but you don't add an image of your own coin, Exact Change will show the stock image when you select that coin.  This provides easy access to the image library and makes it easy to see the coin design without having to scan every coin you add.

We'd like to thank David C. Stevens for providing a large number of images of First Day Covers (FDCs), this allowed us to add these series to the Exact Change database.

The update adds paper money of Germany, Bermuda, Portugal and Congo.  The database for Congo covers everything from the Congo Free State (1885-1908) through the current issues.  For a quarter century, the country's name was changed to Zaire before being changed back.  We'd already covered Zaire so we've done away with that and folded it into the Congo to provide a contiguous coverage of issues from that country.  Burundi paper money was also folded into this database.  The result is that the paper money is structured in the database exactly like the coinage of that country.

 

The first Spouse series has been expanded so that each design is represented by a separate series.  The image library now includes images of each of these coin types.  After downloading the update, click on "Check for image updates" to download these new images.

There are now over 28,500 images in the Exact Change image library.  If you have a coin type or paper money type that has not yet been imaged, we'd like to hear from you. 

 

 


October 16th, 2011:  A new program update is available
    
Wild Man software is pleased to announce the release of the latest Exact Change program update!

We'd like to thank Wayne Corbin of Australia who contributed images of  a wide range of Australian coins and currency, allowing us to greatly expand Exact Change's coverage of Australia.  Again we are grateful to Klaas van Sloten of the Netherlands Antilles who consistently sends images of coins from throughout the Caribbean and South America.  Thanks also to Seth Rossman who uploaded numerous images with the Exact Change upload manager.  If you have any coins or paper money, from any country, which has not been imaged in Exact Change, please consider taking a few minutes to send us an image and we'll add it to the Exact Change database.

The Update includes great improvements to Exact Change's coverage of U.S. paper money.  The database is now more detailed with signatory names, catalog numbers and pricing information.  We've added additional design types and revisited each type to assure that all star notes are included in the database for every applicable type.

Exact Change now includes the coinage of Antigua as well as paper money from Taiwan, Algeria, Japan, Jordan, Costa Rica, Netherlands, South Korea, Columbia and Romania.  The image library contains an additional 1500 images.

With high precious metal prices, a lot of coins have ended up in the melting pot.  One problem with this is that refiners generally pay different prices, relative to the spot price, depending on the overall purity of the entire lot.  If you're melting U.S. coinage, it's simple to calculate that the overall purity is 90%.  But with a mixture of world coinage it can be much more complicated. Theoretically, it would be possible to loose money by adding 10% pure coins to a batch; it's more silver but the overall purity could drop below the threshold.  Therefore, the Stats tab now displays purity information for all coins within the selected series.

The price list now highlights the selected row and column, this makes it easier to enter price date.  This change proved to be very helpful as we entered pricing data for U.S. currency.

The update process will now back up all the price list files before checking for program updates by compressing them into a standard ZIP file which it stores in the My Documents directory.

When you save your collection file, Exact Change will now save an additional copy of the file in the My Documents\Exact Change directory.  This works better than the old location (Program files\Exact Change) because, under some Windows configurations, Windows would not allow saving of the backup file within the Program Files directory.

We corrected a situation in which Exact Change would sometimes indicate that a collection file had been modified when no changes had yet been made.  We also corrected a situation in which some user-defined grades may not show up properly on the grid on the coins page.

When adding a coin to your collection, Exact Change used to default to the first year, mint and variety on the price list and you would then select the correct date for the coin you're adding.  The program now defaults to a blank year, mint and variety as this was causing some confusion.


June 14th, 2011:  Wild Man Software is working to extend Exact Change's coverage of world paper money
At Wild Man software, we're constantly working to extend Exact Change's database of coins and notes from around the globe.  If you happen to have a note that we haven't imaged, we'd like to hear from you!  Whether it's a valuable old note or a modern note that you happened to bring back from vacation, we're looking for images of notes from every country in the world.  Just drop it in your scanner, scan both sides at 1200 dpi, and email the images to WildMan@ExactChange.Info.  You don't have to worry about the background, we'll process the image if needed.

June 10th, 2011:  A new program update is available
    
Wild Man software is pleased to announce the release of the latest Exact Change program update!

The update includes well over a thousand new images and new countries including U.S. Colonial coinage, French Colonies, Italian States, the Central American Republic, Andaman & Nicobar Islands as well as paper money from Zimbabwe, Zaire, the Philippines and  the Bahamas.  It adds many new coin types for other countries, extending the coverage for several countries by a century or more.  Once you download the update, be sure to use the Image Download Manager ("Check for image updates" in the Help menu) to download the new images.

You can now preview images of the selected item on the Coins page; these are the images attached to the selected coin entry, the images which also appear on the Images page.  On the right side of the table is a bar (circled in red in this image) which opens and closes the preview image.

The update includes a new version of the report engine which is more efficient in creating reports and adds new features for people who create custom reports.  also, the image update manager has been enhanced with faster polling speed for increased download efficiency.

 


February 15th, 2011:  A new program update is available
    
Wild Man software is pleased to announce the release of the latest Exact Change program update!

We'd like to thank Klaas van Sloten who has again contributed numerous images of coins and paper money from a variety of countries.  We'd also like to thank Roger Moore who contributed images of coin from the Hutt River Province (which was just added to the Exact Change database), Brian Blankenburg who contributed images from numerous countries and all those who have taken the time to scan coin and paper money images to assist us in expanding the Exact Change database.

On February 15th, we released a minor update which added a couple features that had been requested but didn't make it into the February 7th update.  This includes a new "Melt values" report and new report functionality to support this new report (there are new fields available in the report editor).  If you've downloaded the update since February 7th, there's no real impetus to download the minor update.

Smart image manager
The image download manager now includes a "Suggest" button which will will indicate how many new images are available for each country and automatically select for download all those countries that include new images.

New coin types and images
Many new coin types have been added to the database and Exact Change now includes more that 25,000 images!

5 Ounce bullion quarter support
Exact Change now includes the new five ounce America The Beautiful quarters.  The menu option which is used to select the America The Beautiful quarter image also selects the design to be displayed for the five ounce coin.

Persistent window size and position
In response to user requests, the main Exact Change window will now retain its size and position when the program is closed and reopened.

Report preview enhancements
Changes have been made to the report preview process.  This resolves an issue that occurred when data was exported to a CSV file without first being previewed on screen.

Online registration
Exact Change now includes a registration feature which can automatically register the program online.

 


October 25th, 2010:  A new program update is available
    
Wild Man software is pleased to announce the release of the latest Exact Change program update!

 

New image download manager
Exact Change now includes a download manager which makes it easy to get all the new coin any paper money images as they're added to the database.  Just select the countries you'd like to update and Exact Change will download and install them.  You can even keep working while the downloads are taking place; just minimize the download manager and it will take care of all the image updating in the background while you enter coins or explore your collection.

The update adds to the database paper money from Spain, Nicaragua, Nepal, Japanese puppet states of WWII, India, Hungary, Trinidad, Guinea-Bissau, Zambia, Iran, Viet Nam, North Korea, Laos, Venezuela and Burundi.  With the new image download manager, you can easy get the images paper money from these countries. Please remember that if you happen to have a note in your collection that we've not yet imaged, we'd really like to hear from you.  With you're help we can build the most comprehensive reference of full color images of notes from every country in the world.
 

PCGS CoinFacts integration
There is a new type of user-defined field for Exact Change users who also use PCGS CoinFacts™.  When you add this type of user defined field to your collection file, each coin entry will have a space where you can enter the coin number from the PCGS slab.  Beside that space is a button that will automatically take you to the PCGS CoinFacts™ web site, directly to the year, mint, and variety in your slab.


To utilize this feature you'll need a subscription to PCGS CoinFacts

 

October 10th, 2010: Constitutional changes dissolve
the Government of the Netherlands Antilles

Klaas van Sloten, an Exact Change user and resident of the Netherlands Antilles, sent us this report:

Our country Netherlands Antilles was dissolved at 12 last midnight. The end of the Netherlands Antilles came after nearly 56 years. The “statuut” was signed by Queen Juliana on the 15 of December 1954 and stopped on 10-10-10.

 The island territory of Curacao became country Curacao.

The island territory of Sint Maarten became country Sint Maarten

Both islands will stay like Aruba within the Kingdom of the Netherlands, which now consists of 4 countries; The Netherlands, Curacao, Aruba and Sint Maarten (like a common wealth)

The currency for Curacao and Sint Maarten will for the first year the Netherlands Antilles Guilder, but should change into the Dutch Caribbean Guilder. However a lot of voices want to have the US Dollar as the official currency, like the British Virgin Islands.

 The island territories of Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba will become a special territory of the Netherlands and will have the US Dollar as official currency.

There is a new support forum available for Exact Change users
The new forum provides an easy way to get technical support for Exact Change, discuss features you'd like to see in Exact Change, or converse about any subject related to coin or paper money collecting!  The forum is available in the menu at left, or just click here to view the forum.

September 13th, 2010:  A new program update is available
    
Wild Man software is pleased to announce the release of the latest Exact Change program update!
The new release is now shipped on a two disk DVD set; Exact Change actually has more picture data than a feature length Hollywood film!

As always, the program update is available at no charge to registered Exact Change users.  Just click on "Check for updates" in the program's "Help" menu and Exact Change will automatically download and install the new version.

Easily keep up to date with Exact Change's growing image library
We're constantly adding new images to the the Exact Change image library; there are now nearly 25,000 images!  Along with program and price list updates, the "Check for updates" feature now enables you to select a country and then the update manager will automatically download all the images for that country.

World paper money
With the new release we're adding paper money from more than 60 countries to the Exact change database.  Our goal is to catalog with high resolution color images every note from around the globe.  It's a monumental task and one that's never been done before so if you happen to have a coin or note in your collection that has not been imaged in Exact Change, we encourage you to take a moment to scan the coin and send us an image; the new upload manager makes it quick and easy to send in an image.  If it's a coin that's not currently listed in the Exact Change database, we'll add it!  Exact Change users all over the world may find notes in their wallet that are yet to be imaged; we're looking for images of notes from any country and the images we receive dictate what countries receive priority.  So please take a moment to send any images you can; it's quick and easy, and it's fun to see your own collection items depicted in Exact Change.

New graphic processor
Exact Change includes a new graphic engine which eliminates
Moiré patterns which appear in paper money images.  Moiré patterns are those odd lines that often appear when an image with many parallel lines is displayed.  With the new engine, these patterns are eliminated and, as a result, we're able to provide images that are significantly sharper and clearer.

 

New coins types.
Hundreds of new coin types have been added from around the world and Exact Change's coverage of several countries has been extended back in time.  For example, coverage of Argentine coinage begins a half century earlier.  Several types such as Australian sovereigns and numerous British types have been divided into sub groups where we had previously combined coins with different KM numbers.

Intelligent report preview
The report preview no longer begins generating the selected report when you click on the "Reports" tab.  Instead, the report description is displayed and you have the option of selecting a different report before clicking on "Preview".  Some users reported a sluggishness when the report preview was processing a report so this change eliminates that issue.


The Exact Change web site now includes an upload manager
Exact Change represents a goal that goes far beyond anything that any other coin collecting software has ever contemplated; to catalog, with images, coins, not from a few select countries, but from all over the world.  It's an ongoing task; we've added an additional 500 images in the short time since the latest update was released on June 28th. We're in the process of imaging paper money as well, to provide paper money collectors with that same functionality.
If you happen to have a coin or note in your collection that has not been imaged in Exact Change, we encourage you to take a moment to scan the coin and send us an image; the new upload manager makes it quick and easy to send in an image.  If it's a coin that's not currently listed in the standard database, we'll add it!  Exact Change users all over the world may find notes in their wallet that are yet to be imaged; we're looking for images of notes from any country and the images we receive dictate what countries receive priority.  So please take a moment to send any images you can; it's quick and easy, and it's fun to see your own collection items depicted in Exact Change.
If you'd like access to the upload manager, just email Wild Man Software.
