June 4, 2015 – Numismatic Guaranty Corporation® (NGC®) has released a Tokens and Medals Census with comprehensive population data for virtually all types graded by NGC. The Tokens and Medals Census, which is available for free on the website of NGC, provides collectors and dealers with an unprecedented opportunity to evaluate the rarity of tokens and medals from around the world.
This powerful research tool lists the total number of examples certified by NGC for each type, variety, designation and grade. Updated weekly, it can be used to help determine which types, varieties and grades are the most common and which are the rarest.
NGC’s Tokens and Medals Census has categories for popular series such as Hard Times Tokens, Civil War Tokens, Admiral Vernon Medals, Chinese Medals, Conder Tokens, German Goetz Medals, Swiss Shooting Medals and more. To view all of the categories, visit the website of NGC and click on “Census” under the NGC Research menu.
“The release of the NGC Tokens and Medals Census significantly increases the information available to collectors and dealers of these pieces,” says Richard S. Montgomery, president of NGC. “This resource will not only allow for more informed buying and selling decisions, but will also create numerous research opportunities in this important field of numismatics.”
Nikki Robinson, NGC Tokens and Medals Grader, adds: “For many years NGC has been the leader in the certification of tokens and medals. The new Tokens and Medals Census expands upon our commitment to provide the best and most comprehensive services for collectors of these pieces.”
NGC grades more token and medal types than any major third-party grading service. For a complete list of tokens and medals that are eligible for NGC certification, please visit this website of NGC.
