PCGS attended the Australasian Numismatic Dealer’s Association International Coin and Banknote Show, its first time participating officially in a show in Australia.
Held in Melbourne, Australia, Oct. 18 – 20, 2013, the Professional Coin Grading Service handed out free PCGS-graded coins. The company also offered two seminars on Sunday, Oct. 20: "PCGS Enhancing Your Coin Collecting" at 11 am, and "The PCGS Set Registry" at 2 pm.
"This will be a great opportunity to meet Australian collectors and dealers and let them know about the revamped Population Report for Australian coins and the popular PCGS Set Registry™ program," noted Ms. Muriel Eymery, PCGS Vice President of International Business Development, before the show.
The PCGS Set Registry lets collectors securely register their graded coins, compare them with other collections and track their prices.
It’s "growing in popularity with Australian collectors," said PCGS President Don Willis. "There already are nearly 900 Australian sets now listed in the registry, including commonwealth and decimal coinage categories."
PCGS offers an unlimited lifetime guaranty of authenticity and grade. Since its founding in 1986, PCGS experts have certified over 26 million coins worth more than $27 billion.
"Coin collecting is alive and well around the world, and world coin grading has become an important part of PCGS’ business," said Willis.
As a part of its services, PCGS authenticates and grades coins from over 100 countries. It places those coins inside sturdy transparent holders that are sealed using a tamper-evident process that inhibits contaminants.
The Australasian Numismatic Dealer’s Association International Coin and Banknote Show was held in the Medallion Club (level 2) at Etihad Stadium. To learn more about it, visit http://australiancoinshows.com.au.
