Numismatic Guaranty Corporation® has now certified more than 50 million coins, tokens and medals, becoming the first third-party coin grading service to reach that major milestone. Fifty million coins represents numismatic rarities from the dawn of coinage to the modern day, some recovered from the depths of the ocean and others that have been flown to the moon.
Founded in 1987, NGC is the world’s leading and largest numismatic certification service, employing an expert team of more than 35 full-time graders and hundreds of support staff with offices in the United States, Great Britain, Germany and China. NGC also has a network of over 20 Official Submission Centers and thousands of Authorized Dealers in countries around the globe.
“NGC is honored by the incredible support of collectors and dealers over the years that has propelled us to this significant milestone,” said Mark Salzberg, NGC Chairman and Grading Finalizer. “The worldwide trust in our services and the high prices realized for NGC-certified coins is based on an unwavering commitment to our founding principles of accuracy, consistency and integrity, which will continue to guide us into the future.”
To celebrate 50 million coins certified, NGC is showcasing 50 amazing rarities from the 2,600-year history of numismatics.
