SARASOTA, Fla. (November 1, 2012) – Numismatic Guaranty Corporation™ (NGC®), Numismatic Conservation Services™ (NCS®), and Paper Money Guaranty™ (PMG®) received enthusiastic praise for their presence at the 2012 Korea Money Fair from October 26 to October 28 in Seoul, Korea.

Sponsored by the Ministry of Strategy and Finance, the Bank of Korea and Shinhan Bank, the show also received major support from Poongsan Hwadong (www.hwadong.com), the official Korean submission center for NGC, NCS and PMG.

Collectors and dealers expressed a strong preference for NGC and PMG certification in Korea. At the Poongsan Hwadong auction held in conjunction with the show, more than 90% of the certified coins were graded by NGC. PMG enjoys similar support and has now graded more than 60,000 notes from South Korea.

The popularity of NGC and PMG in South Korea is representative of the widespread support throughout Asia. In China, for example, NGC has graded more than 500,000 coins while PMG has graded more than 50,000 notes. NGC, NCS and PMG now have official submission centers in South Korea, China, Taiwan and Singapore.

“We are honored by the tremendous feedback we received at the Korea Money Fair,” says Steven R.
