Exact Change Version 6.3 is now available

֎ The series Editor now automatically centers vertically on the selected series, reducing the need to scroll as you drill down through various series.

֎ Transit tokens were often minted from whatever metal was available, particularly in the time around World War II.  To accommodate the new transit token database, a bunch of new metallic compositions were added to the program:  White metal/Brass, Celluloid, Magnesium, Vulcanite, Copper/White metal, Bronze/Zinc, Brass/White metal, Bronze/Brass, White metal/Zinc, White metal/Bronze, White metal/Steel, Gun Metal, Gun Metal/Zinc, Gun Metal/White Metal, Gun Metal/Copper, White metal/Lead, Gun Metal/Bronze, Zinc/White metal, Zinc/Brass, Zinc/Bronze, Copper/Lead, Bronze/White Metal, Stainless Steel.

֎ Dates on the price list can now be designated as Circa dates. This is for coins or tokens that don't indicate a date, but for which the approximate date of minting has been established.  Since they're approximations, Circa dates show in some places, like the date ranges on the "Series" page, but they don't, for example, show up in the "Year/Mint/Variety" box on the "Coins" page.  The program takes care of all of that, so all you really need to know is that you may see dates like "Circa 1942" and that indicates that the item came from that approximate timeframe.

֎ The "Series" page can now display notes or comments.  For example, where items were removed from a catalog numbering system the missing catalog numbers may be noted as in the image below:


֎ A new grade scale was added to support NGC's 10 point grade scale

֎ The "Find A Catalog Number" feature has been enhanced to work faster while also sorting catalog numbers into a natural sort order.  If you have not used the "Fine A Catalog Number" function, you can access it by clicking on "Find" in the program's "Tools" menu.  It's a great way to locate a series by selecting a catalog number...







Exact Change Version 6.0 is now available

Version 6 of Exact Change is unlike any previous update of the program; it's an entire re-write of the program in a new language in order to take advantage of the latest software development tools. 

The installation file for the trial version and the fully licensed file are now the same download (if you've entered a license code then that eliminates the trial mode restrictions).  So you can install version six by downloading the installation program:


Click here to download Exact Change version 6 Windows edition
File Name: ExactChangeWindowsSetup.exe




Click here to download Exact Change version 6 Mac edition
File Name: ExactChangeMacSetup.zip

Before installing the new version, you should make a backup copy of your collection file.  When you open a collection file in version 6, the program will automatically convert it to accommodate some new program features so older versions of the program won't recognize the modified file.  It's just always a good idea to keep a backup copy of your data file in a safe place when making big changes.  If you've modified the standard price lists, you'll probably want to back up your price lists too. 


Some of the changes you'll find in version 6:


Multi-platform design:

Both the Windows and Macintosh editions are created with the same program code (as opposed to being two different programs of similar functionality).  This means that new features and program updates will be available for both Windows and Macintosh users at the same time; both editions will carry the same version number in all future releases.




The "Add Countries" menu, which was used to add the coins or paper money from additional countries to your collection file, has been replaced with the new "Country Explorer".  You'll find the Country Explorer to be much easier to use; you don't need to identify the continent before selecting a country and countries may be listed under each name by which they may be identified (i.e. United Kingdom and Great Britain)


Version 6 can automatically download the latest close prices for each of the precious coinage metals as well as exchange rates for each of 156 different world currencies.  A ticker at the bottom of the "Series" page displays the current spot prices.  

When you select a base currency, the values that Exact Change produces are quoted in that currency.  In other words, when an Australian user looks at the melt value of a coin, they'll see that value in Australian dollars.

The currency conversion functionality works the other way too.  For example, when printing 2x2 inserts, you can choose to include a coin's price in both Euros and U.S. Dollars, for example.



Version 6 No longer utilizes a external file manager (the "Web Update Wizard").  Instead, the new program interacts directly with our server to provide you with program updates, image updates and price list updates, as well as the spot price and foreign exchange rate data described above.  This means that Exact Change can better provide you with a status of any file transfers.  You may need to grant the Exact Change program permission to communicate through your firewall.
