PCGS loves our Registry members! We are only a couple weeks away from the big ANA summer show and of course our annual PCGS Registry luncheon. We look forward to this chance to meet with so many of the Registry participants, to listen to their suggestions and to share new and upcoming developments at PCGS. Of course we also enjoy recognizing some of the top Registry Set collections and honoring the collectors that put them together. It’s a fun time for all. We hope to see you in Chicago!

What is Coin Grading? PCGS Explains the Process & its Value to Coin Collectors

Posted on July 15, 2014 by 2 Comments

PCGS has been the most trusted grading service for many years. In 1986 PCGS was the first service to offer a lifetime guarantee on every coin we certify. That guarantee provided assurance to collectors and investors alike and resulted in thousands of new faces appearing in the collecting market. Prices have soared as buyer confidence has increased. Many coins are traded “sight seen” but there is even a “sight unseen” market for PCGS certified coins. This would not be possible without the confidence held by many in our grading standards as well as our lifetime guarantee. That is why today PCGS certified coins are the most liquid and most sought-after coins in the market.
