Announcing the NGC Coin Explorer
Posted on 8/16/2011
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) has released one of the most comprehensive online references for US coins today. The new NGC Coin Explorer is a free research tool designed as a resource for both dealers and collectors, whether buying or selling coins. Both new and advanced collectors will find the NGC Coin Explorer useful when trying to find out more about coins they own in addition to researching coins they are considering buying. This new, all encompassing tool for US coins lists over 30,000 issues, including Colonials, Patterns, and Territorials on over 9,300 web pages.
When searching the NGC Coin Explorer for US coins, visitors will find all the information they are looking for on one page - images, specifications (including mintage figures, designer, and weight) and a detailed description and analysis. Current melt values are given for all gold, silver, and platinum coins – a valuable tool considering the recent increases in precious metal prices. The page also highlights census details, price guide values, eligible varieties, pertinent NGC newsletter articles, registry scores and competitive registry sets.
Coming soon the NGC Coin Explorer will include auction information. Working with prominent auction houses, including Heritage and Stack’s-Bowers, NGC will provide auction data as part of this incredible tool. Upcoming auctions and prices realized information will be available for each coin, and advanced filters will allow users to sort the auction data and find the information they are looking for. The NGC Coin Explorer will continue to be expanded in the future with new additional resources.
“The beauty of the Coin Explorer is that collectors and dealers can find everything they need to know about a particular US coin all in one place,” says NGC CEO Steve Eichenbaum. “Everything from census reports and images to registry scores and auction information is right there at your fingertips, 24/7, on the NGC web site.”
The NGC Coin Explorer complements the widely praised NGC US Coin Price Guide and NGC World Coin Price Guide supplying everything the numismatic community needs in one place, solidifying the NGC website as the number one resource for research tools.
