Certification of Gold

Universal Coin and Bullion - About Certification

Since grading companies such as NGC and PCGS were founded, coin grading and certification have followed high standards in determining grade and authentication. Every coin that is examined for certification and authentication by PCGS or NGC is encapsulated and sonically sealed in a tamper-evident plastic holder that includes a serial number, a description, and a guaranteed grade.

For collectors and investors, one of the key benefits to third party certification is a greater level of confidence in grade and authenticity. When you purchase a rare coin for your coin collection or as an investment, it is important to know the grade of your coin, so that you can accurately assess its market value. You must consider that while there are strict standards to which most numismatists adhere, coin grading is a subjective, and not exact, process. We encourage you to learn more by talking to our staff and looking at our informational resources to become a better educated collector or investor. Read below to learn more about the coin grading scale.

This in depth article provides insightful "insider’s" analysis into the diligent processes involved in coin certification, authentication and grading as performed by NGC and PCGS, the two major coin certification services.

About The Coin Grading Scale

Coin grading experts evaluate a coin's present condition against its condition in the mint upon manufacture. Professional numismatists use the Sheldon Grading Scale developed by Dr. William Sheldon which uses a 70-point numerical scale when determining a coin's proper rating and value.

GOLD COIN SURVIVES CONTROVERSY.
Drives Investor & Collector demand.
It was authorized by the Act of April 2, 1792. In 1908, this gold coin sparked controversy and spread fear across our nation. So loudly was the coin condemned, people were scared to save them in their collections for fear of germs spreading from the coin’s innovative recessed design.

Over a century later, that unfounded fear has resulted in the Indian Head quarter eagle ($2 ½) becoming a series with relatively few examples surviving in higher grades.
