Collectors and dealers were excited to take advantage of show grading specials at the Korea Money Fair and Beijing International Coin Exposition.
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation® (NGC®), Numismatic Conservation Services® (NCS®) and Paper Money Guaranty® (PMG®) experienced significant demand from collectors and dealers at the Korea Money Fair in Seoul, Korea and the Beijing International Coin Exposition in Beijing, China last weekend.
The companies were represented at the Korea Money Fair by Hwadong, their official Korean submission center, and at the Beijing International Coin Exposition by Guangzhou National Standard Numismatic Collection Grading Co, Ltd. (Guangzhou GB), the official China submission center of the three companies. Hwadong and Guangzhou GB accepted for expedited show grading specials as well as regular NGC, NCS and PMG submissions.

Collectors and dealers alike were enthusiastic about the opportunity to take advantage of the expedited show grading special and responded by submitting significant numbers of coins to NGC and notes to PMG. NGC has graded more than 635,000 Chinese coins and nearly 35,000 Korean coins, while PMG has certified more than 80,000 Chinese notes and more than 70,000 Korean notes.
The market preference for NGC and PMG was further supported by the official show auctions, with the majority of certified coins and notes offered for sale being graded by NGC and PMG.
