Hungarian and Romanian coins catalog for Android

Do you collect Hungarian or Romanian coins and you have a smartphone (or tablet) running Android?

Well .. we just launched 2 applications to make things easier for you to :

– manage your coins trade list, wish list and personal collection
– view images and useful details for the coins inside the catalog (mint, material, mintage, weight, diameter, catalog prices and others)
– access the market price extra option to find out information about the real value of a coin (as you may know, the prices are depending on the current supply/demand, so we monitor the auctions houses and websites to calculate the market prices)
– do a fast search to find a particular coin you are interested in
– synchronize your app data between multiple devices (phone, tablet and computer)

Trying to find an old trading road …

Yesterday we tried to find an old road connecting 2 villages near Brasov but without so much luck, at least the scenery was beautiful and the weather was just perfect :)

The 3 coins are :

10 Euro coin celebrating Richard Wagner bicentenary

I’m a big fan of Richard Wagner’s music and I was pleased when I saw that the Bank of Germany will issue in 3 days a silver commemorative coin celebrating his birth bicentenary :)

Coin or medal orientation

While being a moderator on http://www.allnumis.com a lot of people asked me what are the different orientations of the coins so I thought .. why not explain it here too?

Basically there are 2 types :

1) Coin orientation : It is when you turn the coin on the X (horizontal) axis to the other side and the coin design is upside down.

Coin orientation (alignment)

Coin orientation (alignment)

2) Medal orientation : In this case, if you turn the coin on the horizontal axis to the other side the design is in the good position.

PS : On older coins you will see that they may be neither of medal, neither of coin orientation but to a certain degree (mostly random)

Chewing gum inserts

If you are old enough (born before 1995) there is a great chance you will remember the chewing gum inserts, a lot of kids loved it, including myself. I remember buying a lot of Turbo Kent chewing gum and chewing them until my jaws hurt :))

We played a lot of games with the prize being the inserts inside, almost all kids from my neighborhood collected them but with the time we just put the inserts in books or in shoe boxes and forgot about them.

Last week, while doing some cleanup in my old stuff I found 7 Turbo inserts and I decided to make a catalog for them on Allnumis along with another user Radu Florin ( http://www.allnumis.com/user/profile/raducioiu9424 )

If you have such chewing gum inserts please help us revive this cool collectible :)


First scan for this year

Being in Ireland for several months stripped me of the pleasure of metal detecting so with the first chance I get out with my Fisher F2 and with the newly (untested) Garrett ProPointer. Here is what I found in 3-4 hours :

4 coins (3 bani 1952, 2000 lei 1946, 1 kreutzer 1800, an unidentified yet coin 17XX) + a lot of lead bullets.
