Introducing the Certified Coin Registry!

Posted on 8/27/2001

The goal of the Certified Coin Registry is to encourage coin collecting as a hobby, acknowledge the collectors who assemble truly remarkable sets, and inspire beginner hobbyists as they embark on the fun and rewarding hobby of building a coin collection.

There are many advantages to using the Certified Coin Registry:

IT’S ACCESSIBLE. The Registry is open to Collectors Society members with sets of all sizes, from complete to "just getting started." Collections do not have to be complete to be listed. It’s possible that an incomplete set with high grade rarities could rank higher than a complete set of mostly lower grade coins.

IT’S AFFORDABLE. Once a Collectors' Society member, there is no cost for a simple registry entry and should you choose to have your coins imaged, the cost is just $3 per coin, plus shipping and insurance charges to and from NGC.

IT’S IMPARTIAL. Your set is ranked according to its true rarity, thanks to our highly accurate ranking system developed by our top experts.

IT’S INCLUSIVE. We rank coins from both major coin certification services, NGC and PCGS, so all of the coins in your set will be included.

IT’S PRIVATE. When starting your set, you choose its name and whether or not to use your own name or a pseudonym. At all times, your Registry account information and management tools are password protected.

IT’S CONVENIENT. Adding or removing coins from your set is easy through your password-protected area. It’s also easy to submit coins for Registry with our online form.

IT’S EXCLUSIVE. The Registry not only lists the top 3 collections in each area but it also allows a further listing of all the collections in a each area of competition. This way, even beginner set collectors can see their place in the Registry, and see their sets move up the charts as they continue to add or upgrade their coins.

IT’S TRUSTWORTHY. Because the Registry is run and sponsored by NGC, the industry’s leading coin certification company and the Official Grading Service of the ANA, you can trust it will be done right. NGC handles over 40,000 coins a month and has the systems and the personnel to safely, quickly and expertly handle your Registry submissions.

IT’S USEFUL. It functions as a ranking system, as a visual record of your collection, as a viewing tool for your family and friends across the country and around the world. In these ways and so many others the Certified Coin Registry is the most useful collecting resource on the worldwide web.
