Why PCGS and NGC-Graded Coins Can Be Good Investments
Published on 12/29/2021 by APMEX
The Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) and the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) are the two top coin grading services in the world. They both work to ensure that any coin delivered to them is impartially graded. Both companies apply a rigorous process to grade each coin. Each company employs the best numismatic experts on hand to ensure the best grade and quality.
When you order a PCGS or NGC coin, you can be sure both the grade and quality of the coin are guaranteed. The grading scale is represented from 1 to 70, with 70 being perfect condition. There are several reasons why these coins can make good investments:
- Provides peace of mind for beginning and experienced collectors.
As a coin collector, maximizing your profits and the value of the collection is important. Owning a PCGS or NGC-graded coin guarantees you get the exact grade and quality of the coin. Any worry as to whether you have a genuine coin is alleviated.
- Encapsulated and guaranteed for your protection.
Not only is your coin guaranteed but it comes encapsulated for protection in the shipping process and while in storage or on display. Guarantees are important in the context of shipping Precious Metals bullion because much of the value of the coin lies in the quality.
- There is more leverage in reselling with a PCGS or NGC-graded coin.
Selling NGC coins or PCGS coins offers more leverage because of the notoriety and authenticity of the coin. Whether selling the coin to coin shops or online, buyers are more comfortable when they know there is validation for the coin.
Regardless of what Precious Metals prices do, these graded bullion coins outpace the value. There is a wide variety of graded coins available, such as Pre-1933 Gold coins, Early Half Dollars and many more.
