Numismatic Guaranty Corporation
When NGC was founded in 1987, it heralded the introduction of a new standard of integrity in coin grading. From the beginning NGC focused on only one objective, a standard of consistent and accurate grading.
As NGC has grown to become the leader in third-party grading services, we have maintained a steadfast and uncompromising commitment to this standard. The knowledge, integrity and dedication of NGC's team of numismatic professionals ensures you a level of grading consistency unparalleled among grading services. This record of consistency, built over the years, has helped to foster greater stability throughout the rare coin marketplace.

Reveal Your Coins’ True Beauty
Professional conservation from Numismatic Conservation Services (NCS) removes harmful surface contaminants, protects a coin’s surfaces, and can often substantially improve a coin’s eye appeal.
Several changes to our services and fees for 2017 have made submitting to NCS easier than ever and provide new opportunities for savings:
- NCS Standard Conservation — fee lowered to 4% Fair Market Value ($25 minimum fee).
- NCS Gold + NGC Grading — fee of $50 includes both NCS conservation and NGC grading. This new tier accepts all uncertified gold coins, both vintage and modern, except coins requiring an NGC Oversize Holder. Maximum value $3,000 per coin.
