The Numismatic Search Engine Coins2.com started its work in January 2007 and received many positive reports from numismatists from every corner of the globe. The main section Coins2.com uses the Google Custom Search Engine and search for any information at more than 4200 numismatic sites. Having studied the reports and proposals of their users, the team of Coins2.com made a decision to improve the service. On the expiry of several months of intensive work, there was created a new section called Images & Prices, which is now in beta-testing stage.
At the present moment the search index of the section has stored information about more than 1,000,000 coins, the most part of which is supplied with pictures and prices. But the work on indexing of numismatic web is at its very beginning. For the moment special stress is laid on the USA coins, but there are plans to continue this work and expand it to the ancient coins and further on to the coins of the whole world.
The creators of Coins2.com do not undertake the task of gathering and cataloging information about coins or carrying out analysis of price tendencies. There is a great deal of information about coins in Internet. The mission of Coins2.com is to make access to this information more comfortable and easy for numismatics-fanciers.
