General Submission FAQs

How much does NGC grading cost?

NGC's grading fees are generally based on a coin's fair market value and the submitter's desired turnaround time. For a comprehensive list of all NGC grading tiers, service tiers, fees and requirements, click here.

How do I access the submission forms?

You must have an Associate or higher NGC Collector membership or be an NGC Authorized Dealer to submit directly to NGC.

To access submission forms:

  1. Sign in to at the upper right of the page (if you are not yet logged in).
  2. Click on the head symbol that appears in the upper right corner:
  3. Click on "My Submissions" in the menu that appears.
  4. Select the appropriate form under the Submission Forms header.

Why do I need to list my coin's value on the submission form? How do I know its value?

NGC uses the submitter's declared value to insure the coin while it is in its care. The coin's value also determines the NGC grading tier. Since NGC guarantees the authenticity and grade of coins that it certifies, it charges a higher fee for more valuable coins. For more information, read the Declared Value Policy.

NGC does not value or appraise coins, but it does provide several price guides on its website to help collectors find their coin's value.

You can also research auction records in the NGC US Auction Central and NGC World Auction Central resources.

Can I send multiple submissions to NGC in the same box?

Yes, you may send multiple submissions to NGC or NCS in the same box. You may not, however, send submissions to other CCG companies (such as PMG or CGC) in the same box as submissions to NGC or NCS.

What should I do if I have a WalkThrough or Express submission?

If you have a WalkThrough or Express submission, we recommend writing "WK" or "EX," respectively, in bold letters on the outside of the box that you send to NGC. This will help to ensure that these packages are opened first.

Can I drop my coins off at your office?

NGC accepts submissions from NGC Collector members through the mail or at shows only. NGC Collector members are not able to drop off coins at our office. NGC Authorized Dealers may drop off their coins at our office if they make an appointment. To schedule an appointment, contact NGC Customer Service at or 1-800-NGC-COIN (642-2646).

What measures are in place at NGC to ensure the safety of my coins?

NGC headquarters is a secure 60,000-square-foot, purpose-built facility with two large vaults, a staff of armed guards and more than 150 security cameras. Submissions to NGC are opened under security cameras, and each coin is immediately assigned a unique identification number that is used to track it throughout every stage of NGC's grading process. All coins are fully insured while in NGC's possession and are handled only by trained staff.

These security features are replicated at NGC's international offices.

Can I check the status of my submission online?
