NGC Releases Complete Online World Coin Price Guide
Posted on 6/1/2011
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) with Krause Publications’ NumisMaster, has released an online price guide of World Coins from 1600 to date.
The World Coin Price Guide, available on NGC’s website, is the most comprehensive free resource of its kind on the internet. Values for more than 350,000 coins are listed as well as photographs of thousands of different issues. Many world coin prices are updated daily, and new photographs are added monthly.
Prices and photographs are independently compiled by Krause Publications’ NumisMaster and provided to NGC through an exclusive agreement.
Visitors to the World Coin Price Guide have two options to search for values: one allows for specific coin attributes to be entered, the other lets users browse by country and denomination. Krause catalog numbers are listed for easy reference to the Standard Catalog of World Coins and attributions on NGC holders. This cross references the price guide with the most popular and widely used catalog for coins, both in the US and internationally.
One of the most exciting features of the World Coin Price Guide is up-to-the-minute melt values for all gold, silver, platinum, and palladium coins. With the recent fluctuation in bullion prices, this innovative tool makes it easy for users to determine the most current values of their World coins.
NGC CEO Steve Eichenbaum comments, "The World Coin Price Guide provides collectors and dealers easy access to world valuation trends to make better purchasing decisions. This is another free resource available to the numismatic community."
"Krause Publications is pleased to partner with NGC to offer this world coin price guide,” said KP Numismatics Publisher Scott Tappa. "As interest in world coin collecting continues to grow, the extensively-researched data and images in this guide will help provide depth and context to buying, selling and collecting."
The World Coin Price Guide was released on June 1, 2011, and complements the widely praised NGC US Coin Price Guide. Other resources on NGC’s website include a US Coin Encyclopedia, US Coin Variety Attribution Guide and US Coin Grading Guide.
