Two experts with Numismatic Guaranty Company™ (NGC®) and Paper Money Guaranty® (PMG®) offered video presentations and answered questions at the 2021 Festival of Coins, which was held virtually September 18-25, 2021. Each expert offered a 30-minute presentation followed by a 30-minute question-and-answer session.
David W. Lange, NGC Research Director, gave a presentation titled "Similarities and Differences in US and UK Coinage."

A coin enthusiast for more than 50 years, Lange is the author of 10 books on United States numismatics and has received the American Numismatics Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award and Numismatist of the Year honors.
