Is there a way to add picks for Face Value? There isn't one for Two dollar coins.

We hadnít included $2 as a face value because the U.S. didnít have a $2 coin but with all the functionality thatís been added since (such as paper money for which the U.S. has a $2 issue), it certainly makes sense to include that now.  Mainly, the face value for a series is used to calculate things like rate of return (If a forty year old quarter is worth 50 cents, has it been worth holding onto?, those kind of queries).  For world coins, it wouldnít make sense to compare, say, a 1 Rouble coin to its current value, say $10 (this is why we donít put in a face value for world coin series).  Of course, if youíre writing from Canada, the lack of a $2 face value probably just seems weird.  So yes, we will include a $2 face value in the next update.

Yes, I'm from Canada and that would be appreciated. If possible, maybe you could also add a way for the user to add more picks.

I don't see a $2 pick in the upgrade for face value of Canadian coins as requested

Yes, that one slipped through the cracks but itís just been completed so itís defiantly in the update at this point (itís on the done list now, rather than the to-do list).  We also added a $500 face value; what other values to you envision?

$2 coins are the only ones in common use, that are missing, but there have been Canadian coins issued in many other denominations, such as, $30, $75, $150, $200, $300, & $350. Perhaps, it could be changed to allow user input, if one of the standard values does not fit. I still need a way to pull the 3rd directory level into reports.
