| PCGS – The Global Standard for Rare Coin Grading
The London Coin Company are proud to represent PCGS (Professional Coin Grading Service) in the United Kingdom and Europe as this will be the future path for coin collecting globally.
We decided to work with PCGS as their reputation precedes them and being one of the main impartial global Certification, Slabbing and Grading companies in the world our partnership will change the face of coin collecting forever.
Why have we chosen an American company rather than a British one?
The main reason is that PCGS is the most respected of all the Coin Grading Companies in the world and is truly impartial, unlike some of their counterparts and this is normally shown by prices of coins being realised.
If the same coins are graded by different companies with the same grade PCGS coins will normally always reach higher resale values than any other Coin Grading Company in the world so it is a must to consider for any coin collector or dealer.
With record high precious metal prices how do you know your coin is genuine or the condition of your coin, this is the perfect way to give you peace of mind and to know your coin(s) are genuine and their grade and protected for the future.
Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) is the most respected name in third-party coin certification. By establishing a universal grading standard, PCGS has paved the way for coin enthusiasts to enjoy buying and selling coins with confidence and have Certified and Graded over 38,200,000 coins worldwide.
The advent of the third-party appraisal of a coin's physical condition (which is the basis of its grade), backed by the PCGS Guarantee and our network of reputable Authorized Dealers, provides a dependable form of protection for rare coin collectors. Our respected grading standard has enabled PCGS-Graded coins to realize record prices in the marketplace. When experienced collectors buy coins, they often buy them certified by the name they trust – PCGS.
In addition to standardized grading, PCGS offers a guarantee of grading accuracy and authenticity for each coin we encapsulate. With decades of combined experience, PCGS graders are selected from an elite group of world-class numismatic experts – some of the most respected and admired in the rare coin industry. As we receive submissions, each coin goes through a step-by-step grading process which ensures the utmost care and consideration of your prized numismatic investment. Our experts handle each coin as if it were part of their own collection.
| PCGS – The Global Standard for Rare Coin Grading
PCGS being one of two main impartial Numismatic Grading Services in the world, is a guarantee that the coin is genuine and has been graded accurately and professionally.
The sonically sealed high-security solid plastic case is individually numbered so that the details of the coin(s) can be verified on a central database and these cases are also tamperproof.
In addition, the coin is protected from handling and retains the coin(s) condition and finish long term if looked after, which can be detrimental to the value once sold.
With PCGS Grading behind your coins, you are guaranteed a level of impartiality, grading accuracy and authenticity that was previously unavailable, and only the leader in third-party grading can provide.
