Consumers should be aware that the market in US and world coins is at times volatile and involves a due measure of risk. Only those who are aware of, and inclined to bear, the financial risk involved with buying and selling coins should participate in this market. The opinions expressed in this web page are solely statements of judgment.

NGC authorized member dealers are independent contractors and individually accountable for the market that they make in NGC certified coins. NGC authorized member dealers are also individually accountable for any other contractual undertaking they assume with their clients.

IMPORTANT CONSUMER NOTIFICATION: It is important for consumers to understand that grading and certification by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation does not guarantee protection from common risks associated with a market that is potentially volatile. The degree to which coins graded and certified by NGC are liquid will vary according to market conditions at a given time for the individual coin involved. For some collectible coins there may, at times, be no active market.  

NOTICES REGARDING NGC'S CENSUS REPORT

The utilization of the NGC Census Report as a tool for assessing the population and value of certified numismatic coins in any character or grade is unreliable. The following characteristics inherent in the marketplace undermine the accuracy of this Census Report.

  1. Inexpensive coins that are not commonly submitted for certification appear scarce in this report, but are in fact not scarce.
  2. Numismatic coin certification services are predominantly utilized for coins of a higher value or for coins that have an appeal to collectors, and/or generally of a higher grade.
  3. Certified coins are often removed from their holders without notice to the grading service, or can be lost or destroyed. Therefore, computer tallies utilized to publish grading population reports may be misleading.
  4. Rarity is only one factor that must be weighed in determining the market value of a numismatic coin.

NGC makes every effort to maintain and publish accurate information concerning its grading and certification service but disavows any responsibility or liability regarding the accuracy or the complete nature of the information contained in its Census Report. NGC encourages all coin collectors and investors to seek the counsel of qualified numismatists familiar with the certified coin market before making a purchase based on this report.
