NGC US Coin Price Guide Adds Values for Plus Grades
Posted on 4/8/2013
SARASOTA, Fla. (April 8, 2013) — Numismatic Guaranty Corporation®(NGC®) has announced that its free online NGC US Coin Price Guide now features values for plus () grades. The NGC US Coin Price Guide is the most comprehensive and accurate online coin value guide with nearly 149,000 distinct values for over 6,000 US coins. It is available on the NGC website, NGCcoin.com, under the “NGC Research” menu and the NGC Mobile website, m.NGCcoin.com. All of the values are independently compiled and edited by NumisMedia based on actual, documented transactions.
NGC introduced the plus designation on May 25, 2010 for United States coins dated 1792 to 1964 with any grade from XF 45 to MS 68. The symbol had been used by collectors and dealers for many years prior to that time to denote a coin that was considered premium-quality for the grade. After its release, the NGC Plus Designation was quickly embraced by the rare coin industry as the premier indicator of a coin with the highest technical merit and eye appeal.
Since NGC’s launch of the plus designation in May 2010, NumisMedia has carefully studied dealer and auction sales records for plus-graded coins to determine accurate values. With the April 2013 update, the NGC US Coin Price Guide now includes more than 50,000 values for plus grades.
“This is an important step in our continuing mission to provide collectors and dealers with the tools needed to make informed buying and selling decisions,” says Mark Salzberg, NGC chairman. “We believe that education is key, and we constantly strive to provide more independent, valuable information at the touch of your fingertips for free.”
The NGC US Coin Price Guide is one of the most popular features of NGC’s suite of research tools. Other resources include the widely praised World Coin Price Guide, the NGC Chinese Modern Coin Price Guide, the NGC Coin Explorer and the NGC Auction Central.
