Looking to get your collection or an individual coin graded independently?

It can certainly add value, and also give you peace of mind on the authenticity of a rare coin. However, before you dive right in it is worth evaluating the condition of the coin and the cost of the process before you submit.

If a coin has been cleaned, or damaged you could very well get a ‘Details’ grade which can be extremely disappointing. Try to be objective when viewing your collection, and select only the best quality coins to grade.

The Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) are based in the USA and have been grading coins since the 1940’s. They are one of the most recognised grading companies worldwide. They have certified more than 47 million coins.

NGC certification consists of authentication, grading, attribution, and encapsulation in clear plastic holders. NGC is a member of Certified Collectibles Group (CCG), which owns five million collectible certification services. NGC has been the official grading service of the American Numismatic Association (ANA) since 1995 and the Professional Numismatists Guild (PNG) since 2004. Their grading system is based on the ‘Sheldon Scale’ and allows numismatists to grade the coins from 1 (poor quality) to 70 (Proof like).

Grading is a team effort, with at least two professional numismatists examining every coin. To maintain impartiality, NGC’s coin graders cannot be involved in the commercial buying and selling of coins. Each coin is examined by one NGC coin grader at a time, who enters the coin grade into the system.
