Don’s Desk: 2013 Wrap Up

Posted on December 31, 2013 by No Comments

As 2013 wraps up and we begin a new year I would like to thank all of you for your support over the past 12 months. 2013 was a very exciting year for PCGS. We added new services in the US. We opened new offices in Shanghai, China. Our offices in Paris and Hong Kong continued to grow, as did our US operations, helping PCGS reach over 27 million coins graded in our 27 year history. Collectors Universe Inc., PCGS’ parent company, was selected as one of the top 100 small businesses in the US by Forbes magazine (#50 actually). Most importantly we continue to work hard to protect your interests and earn your confidence as the number one grading service in the world!

Happy New Year!!

Ask Don: Pricing your Coin with PCGS

Posted on December 17, 2013 by 1 Comment

One of the ‘Ask Don’ questions this week comes from someone who came into possession of a large group of coins and is trying to determine what they are worth. This got me thinking about all the tools that PCGS has developed with this person in mind. Tools like PCGS Photograde, PCGS Price Guide, PCGS CoinFacts and others are available on our website and are also available in mobile versions. PCGS has also developed a family of mobile applications so you can take these collecting tools on the road or to shows. With a little bit of patience even the novice collector – or non-collector – can get an idea of what they have and approximately what it might be worth. Remember a smart buyer or seller is already ahead in the game!

Happy Collecting,
