Coin Collecting is one of the most popular collections in this world. However to fully find “the best coin collection” isn’t as easy. The best way is either to buy coin collecting reference books or join clubs to get to know people with the hobby of the kings living near you.
Developed by the world’s leading publisher, Krause Publications, you can now experience a collection of US quarters that you can zoom and rotate in full 360 degrees right on your iPad. Not only that, State Quarters also provides interesting facts about every quarter that you choose. If you want to share it with your friends, store your favorite coin in a virtual album and you’re good to go. Even challenge your friends by creating trivia quizzes as your captions.
According to Scott Tappa, publisher of Krause Publications’ numismatics group, “The state quarter program from the U.S. Mint is arguably the most successful in the history of numismatics, with over 100 million people collecting the coins.”
However the State Quarters iPad app does not only provides seamless 360 degree coin photography for us, but enriches our knowledge about America, as a whole. As Tappa added, “With this app, children can use these popular coins to learn about geography, history, state capitals, birds and flowers, and more. It can be used by parents, educators, after-school programs and others as a fun, educational exercise.”
Another most highlighted feature of the State Quarters iPad app is its stunning virtual and highly interactive American map. Different colours for every state provides users easy to learn geography platform that they can select to get more specific information about certain places.
