Why would a coin has no block explorer (no way to track and check transactions) and no wallet (no way to send or receive the coin)?  Huh

a new coin may not have it at the beginning or a wallet may not work. its a common a problem i have when they have a block explorer and if the wallet is broken.

In the wallet click "Help" at the top and click "Debug Window"
Go to the console and type in getinfo
You'll get a bunch of stuff and one line will be "moneysupply"  that's how many coins have been minted.

This works with just about every coin not just btc

https://blockchain.info/charts will provide you with a ton of information on this.  Quite handy for predicting the growth of bitcoin.

OP is not talking about bitcoin, as he said the coin has no block explorer and has no wallet.

Or am I the only one misunderstanding here?

Is there actually a cheat sheet (reference sheet) that shows you all those codes you can use in order to get information from the debug terminal of the QT clients? There are so many interesting commands you just stumble upon when researching some certain feature!

Ah thanks, I keep on forgetting about the official site! Cheesy Umm but the 'moneysupply' command isn't showing on that page. Are those just parameters used when starting BitcoinQT or are those also commands for the terminal?

No, the command is "getinfo" it shows with a tag like this.
"blocks" : 5615,
"timeoffset" : 0,
"moneysupply" : 17061303.00000000,
"connections" : 7,

That's not from qt though, not running qt anymore switched to Armory but the command is similar in every qt wallet.

Ah alright, thanks again! Yeah, I don't use BitcoinQT, either, it's just not feasible to keep the whole Blockchain on my machine and having to sync all the time. I prefer light clients, too.
