The Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), founded in 1987 and a leader in third-party grading services, has announced a new interim hologram on NGC standard holders.
The updated hologram includes the non commercial web site, www.ngcterms.com, containing information regarding coin grading and the terms of NGC certifications.
NGC CEO, Steven Eichenbaum, commented in the announcement:
“This new Web site increases consumer access to concise and accurate information about NGC’s services. NGC always makes every effort to provide essential information to the broadest possible audience. We’re very proud to provide resources like this as part of our commitment to industry leading certification services and our associations with the PNG and the ANA.”
The updated hologram includes the logos of Professional Numismatists Guild (PNG) and the American Numismatic Association (ANA). Both of these organizations use NGC as their official certification service.
NCG indicates the interim hologram will be replaced later this year with an entirely new NGC holder (and hologram) featuring greatly increased security and anti-counterfeiting enhancements.
NGC was founded in 1987 and offers independent, 3rd party grading of coins. In the grading process, three numismatic experts evaluate submitted coins and the final coin grade is assigned by a grading finalizer. The coin is then sonically sealed in a tamper resistant and protective, inert plastic holder and returned to the submitter.
