PCGS Expands, Enhances Online Coin Price Guide

by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) on August 21, 2008 · 0 comments

New features, including online streaming video commentary from Collectors Universe President and Co-Founder David Hall have been added to the Professional Coin Grading Service’s authoritative Rare Coin Price Guide at www.PCGS.com/prices.  All of the information is available free to the public.

The price guide includes the PCGS3000™ Coin Market Summary that tracks the values of over 3,000 different PCGS-certified coins in a wide range of grades. The new Price Changes feature lets collectors and dealers track the top ten "gainers and losers" for the previous day, as well as the previous two weeks, three months and the past year.  There also are market values for bullion coins, such as American Eagles.


"I’ll be recording frequent commentaries about the numismatic market, and these will be available around the clock on the home page of the PCGS Price Guide," said Hall who co-founded PCGS in 1986.  "We’ve also added an online database for the price history of significant coins sold at public auctions since 1997."


Another new feature links Price Guide pages to their counterparts on Collectors Corner, PCGS’ secure, online coin marketplace.  For example, if a user is looking up prices for Morgan Dollars, they can then click a link at the top of the page that will take them straight to the up-to-the-minute listing of Morgan Dollars on Collectors Corner.  Another link will take users directly to the PCGS Set RegistrySM.

The expanded PCGS Price Guide offers collectors, dealers and the genera public an unprecedented amount of online information about current marketplace values.


"On any given day, there are more than 184,000 current prices listed in the Price Guide, and the historical data base contains more than 6.4 million prices," said Ron Guth, President of PCGS.  "We anticipate even greater use of the Price Guide now that these new features and enhancements have been added."
