We have put in place a new and improved method of adding
coins to the Certified Registry in response to feedback.
Below is a quick summary of the issues, followed by
- New coins can now be registered in the system from
inside of the pages for creating or editing sets.
- When coins are submitted to be registered through
the set screens, once they are processed, they will
automatically be added to the set and slot
from which they were submitted.
- Once a coin is registered this way, it will be available
(as always) for any slot in any set for which it is
a valid coin.
- If you register a new coin for a slot that already
has a coin in it, the new coin will replace the old
one in that set. The old coin will continue to be
in your registered inventory until and unless you
delete it. It will also continue to be used in any
OTHER sets it was assigned to.
- If you submit a coin in a slot where it is NOT valid,
it will be added to your coin inventory, but it will
not get assigned to the set and slot where you added
- The "Coin Description" field, which was
previously intended to be a spot for the owner to
confirm the denomination and details of the coin for
us, now does what you would THINK it should do. That
is, anything you type in here carries over to the
user description field for coins that is displayed
- The old method of managing coins through the "Add/Manage
Coins" menu item still works just the same as
it always has.
Basically, our system has had to balance flexibility
and power against ease of use. It was designed to be
a powerful tool for managing your whole inventory of
coins. In order to accomplish this, it stores each of
your coins separately so that you can register a coin
once and use it again and again in other sets without
having to re-register it. It also makes it easy to delete
that coin and have it automatically removed from all
of the sets where it is registered, or to simply remove
it from individual sets. This is a pretty handy set
of features. The problem is that it created a multi-step
process to add sets and coins.
The old method:
- Submit your coins to the registry
- Wait till your coins are processed and you are emailed
- Go and create a new set.
- Assign your coins to their appropriate slots.
The new method:
- Go to ADD/MANAGE SETS to make a new set.
- Submit your coins to the registry through the slot
where you want them to go.
- Wait till your coins are processed.
That's it. They're already up in your new set. And
you can STILL go add them to other sets, or delete the
coin and have it automatically removed from all of your
Hopefully, this delivers the best of both worlds. The
power of having your coins stored independently of sets,
and an easy process for getting sets up and running.
