NGC Certified Coins Posted by James Randolph on November 11, 2009
November 12, 2009 – Coin collectors and investors across the globe trade coins that have been inspected and graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). NGC Certified coins are housed in a hermetically sealed, tamper-proof holder. NGC and the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) are the two most reputable numismatic organizations that certify coins as “Mint State”. NGC was founded in 1987, and they have earned their right to be a key part of today’s gold market.
Investors utilize PCGS and NGC certified coins because their numismatists have a proven track record of rare coin assaying. PCGS and NGC coins can be purchased from many different reputable gold exchanges, and the top-performing investment-grade coins are pre-1933, American gold and silver coins. PCGS and NGC maintain price guides and population reports, and individuals who want to learn more about certified gold coins can visit www.NGCCoin.com, www.PCGS.com, and www.Rare-Coin.org.
Investors also value pre-1933 US coins that have been certified by PCGS and NGC because they are privately held investments that cannot be confiscated by our government like gold bullion can. During the historic US gold confiscation in 1933 (see www.Gold-Bullion.org), coins of rare and unusual value to collectors were exempted from seizure. Today’s savvy gold investors who want to hold their gold for a lengthy amount of time purchase widely traded gold coins that have been certified by PCGS or NGC. Their coins are private, non-confiscatable investments that could be more profitable than gold bullion over the next decade. Give us a call today to learn more about the various types of gold investments.
