PCGS NGC Zertifizierte Münzen

NGC, the Numismatic Guaranty Company, and PCGS, the Professional Coin Grading Service, are two third-party grading and certification services. They are the two most well-known and respected independent coin grading companies in the world.

Value and authenticity

The advantage of a graded coin is that it is protected from damage, its authenticity is certified and it is more valuable when resold.

PCGS and NGC guarantee the value and authenticity of each coin that meets their rigorous standards. After thorough examination by experienced numismatists, each coin is sealed in a plastic holder with serial number, description and guaranteed valuation. If the coins have been certified by PCGS or NGC, they can be traded with confidence in their authenticity. Collectors and investors no longer need to be rare coin experts to safely buy and sell classic coins.

Rating scale

NGC uses the internationally recognized Sheldon rating scale of 1 to 70, which is considered the industry standard. 70 MS/PF means, for example: a coin without post-processing defects at 5x magnification (highest level) or 69 MS/PF: a fully minted coin with barely perceptible defects. MS stands for Mint State and PF for Proof ( polished plate). The PCGS rating scale is also based on the numbers 1-70 of the Sheldon scale.

There are other valuation services on the market, but PCGS and NGC are the only two that are universally recognized worldwide. We personally do not recommend any other services as they simply do not meet PCGS and NGC standards. Before therefore buys and sells

Difference between PCGS and NGC

PCGS and NGC are already world leaders in coin grading. Well, what is the difference? However, one of the biggest differences between PCGS and NGC is that NGC is more open and shares more detailed information about the evaluation process. At NGC, each coin is graded separately by two experts, and if they cannot agree on the coin’s grade, a third expert steps in. PCGS offers an outstanding Restoration Service, or Gold Shield Service, in conjunction with a Secure Database. Either way, they are both very trustworthy companies that you can be sure will expertly value your coins.
