Starting in version 3.3, Tellico will be able to search Colnect, an online community for collectibles providing personal collection management. As of right now, Tellico can search for coin information only.

Colnect Search Options

Colnect has information in a variety of languages. Tellico has defined options for a few of the most popular; however, you are free to enter whatever language you like.

Obverse and reverse images on Colnect are not specific to the year. If you do have multiple coin entries referencing the same image, Tellico will only save one copy of that image.

The Colnect data model does not map directly to Tellico so the search may not be as fruitful as you might expect. At least as far as I’ve used it, the best results will likely be from searching with a year and the coin name. Mintmarks are not included in the search.

Colnect Search Results

I don’t know how many people use Tellico for coin collections. Please let me know what you think of the Colnect search, if you do use it. As always, if you have suggestions for improvement, please send them to the mailing list or forum. Thanks!
