NGC at the 39th World Money Fair

Posted on 2/1/2010

NGC had a successful showing at this important international event, educating dealers and collectors on third-party certification services, extending an honorary gift to a special guest and viewing a number of NGC-certified coins on display.

One of the most important international events on the calendar for numismatists is the World Money Fair, held at the end of January each year in Berlin. Mints from around the world come to showcase their products for the year ahead. Dealers of classic and modern coinage trade in an active bourse attended by over 13,000 people. And of course, NGC attends to present information about its services for numismatists.

Only a few years ago, most collectors in Europe were unfamiliar with coin certification, but the popularity of third-party grading from NGC is growing quickly. Several dealers offer extensive inventories of NGC-certified coins. The advantages of independent, expert certification and the precision of NGC’s coin grading scale offer clear advantages. To better serve this market, NGC opened an office in Zurich, Switzerland, in mid-2008.

NGC next returns to Germany on March 6 and 7, for Numismata Munich.
