Look forward to great things from NGC and PMG at the 68th Florida United Numismatists (FUN) Show in Orlando in January 2023!

Numismatic Guaranty Company™ (NGC®), Numismatic Conservation Services™ (NCS®) and Paper Money Guaranty™ (PMG®) are excited to be attending the 68th Florida United Numismatists (FUN) Show at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, on January 5-8, 2023.

NGC, NCS and PMG have many special services and events planned, such as a grading contest, one-on-one consultations from David Camire and Chad Hawk, and a special guest appearance by Thomas J. Uram, who spearheaded the initiative to mint new Morgan and Peace Dollars in 2021.

NGC Grading Contest

NGC will be hosting a free grading contest during the FUN Show. The contest will be open to anyone age 13 and older, with participants divided into three age categories: Adults (age 26 and older), Young Adult [YAN] (age 18-25) and Young Numismatist [YN] (age 13-17). Contestants will have 10 minutes to grade 15 coins without any outside assistance and will be scored based on how closely their grades are to NGC’s grades. Prizes will be given for first, second and third place in each category. To learn more about the NGC Grading Contest and how to sign up, click here.
