Submit to the NGC ACAB in Hong Kong, China in August

Posted on 7/12/2017

All vintage Chinese coins struck prior to 1949 will be accepted for evaluation.

The NGC Advanced Chinese Authentication Bureau (ACAB) will be accepting submissions in Hong Kong, China, August 14-20, 2017. This will be the first NGC ACAB event in Hong Kong, China.

Led by noted expert Chen Gi Mao, the NGC ACAB was established in March 2017 to provide a higher level of authentication services for vintage Chinese coins. After coins have been authenticated by the NGC ACAB, they are graded by NGC and encapsulated with the prestigious NGC ACAB Red Dragon label. They are also backed by the comprehensive NGC Guarantee of authenticity and grade.

All vintage Chinese coins struck prior to 1949 will be accepted for evaluation by the NGC ACAB. To submit to the NGC ACAB Hong Kong, China event, write “NGC ACAB August Hong Kong Event” in bold letters on your submission form. If you do not request the NGC ACAB event, your coin will be submitted for standard authentication and, if genuine, will be encapsulated with the NGC standard brown label.

After coins submitted to the NGC ACAB have been evaluated, they will be shipped with full insurance coverage (based on the submitter's declared value) to NGC's Sarasota, Florida, headquarters for grading and encapsulation. Coins will then be returned to Hong Kong, China for pickup after grading.

The standard NGC Hong Kong (China) grading fees will apply to all submissions to the NGC ACAB in Hong Kong, China. For a list of NGC's Hong Kong (China) services and fees, click here.

The cutoff date for submissions to the NGC ACAB Hong Kong, China event is Sunday, August 20. Paid NGC collector members and NGC authorized dealers may submit to the NGC China Hong Kong office or NGC’s booths (A1-A3) at the Hong Kong Coin Show (HKCS) August 18-20 at the Mira Hotel, Hong Kong, China. For more information and to schedule an appointment to submit, contact NGC's Hong Kong, China office.

NGC estimates that all coins submitted to the NGC ACAB in Hong Kong, China will be ready for pickup by Monday, September 18. Demand is expected to be high, however, and turnaround times are not guaranteed.

Submitters to NGC's Sarasota, Florida, office may have their vintage Chinese coins evaluated by the NGC ACAB during this event. For more details, click here.
