Join the Conversation on the NGC Message Boards

Posted by Collectors Society on 2/10/2010

Take full advantage of the Collectors Society by engaging other collectors on the Message Boards. Here you can learn about the most popular discussion forums.

One of the most enjoyable aspects of being a coin collector is sharing the appreciation of rare coins with other collectors. This is the fundamental concept of the NGC Collectors Society, where you can display your collection online in the Registry and blog about your experiences using the Collectors’ Journals. You can even have a conversation with fellow collectors on the Message Boards.

Over 14,000 members participate in the Collectors Society Message Boards, and there are 16 different forums to discuss any topic in numismatics, ranging from coin conservation to the Paper Money Registry. The Message Boards have been upgraded and redesigned – it’s worth a look if you haven’t been there in a while. For coin collectors, there are six forums where you might want to start your exploration:

Numismatic Tangents
A general forum to discuss anything and everything related to numismatics. While all topics are welcome, this is a great place to make a general market commentary, post a show report or recommend a shipping method.

US Coins
This is one of the most active numismatic forums where collectors discuss topics relating specifically to US coins.

Hey buddy, can you spare a grade?
This forum is dedicated to asking fellow forum members to guesstimate the grade of coins or notes from a picture. While grading from a digital image is really not reliable, it's fun and interesting.

World and Ancient Coins / Ask a World Coin Expert
This is where you can discuss World coins with members and NGC World coin experts.

Ask NGC
This is a moderated forum where NGC experts respond to your questions.

The Money Marketplace
The place for buying, selling and trading coins and currency. You might want to pay special attention to items marked FSHO, For Sale Here Only. Please note that we do not monitor buys and sells.
