Professional Coin Grading Service (www.PCGS.com) is making it easier than ever to determine the current values of United States coins with the new PCGS Price Guide App. It's available free from Apple at the App StoreSM (www.itunes.com/apps/PriceGuide) and can be conveniently used with any iPhone®, iPad® or iPod®.
The application instantly provides over 150,000 listings for current values of PCGS-certified coins.
"This is the best coin pricing application in the world, and it is absolutely free," said Don Willis, President of PCGS, a division of Collectors Universe, Inc. (NASDAQ: CLCT).
"It's the market's first mobile coin pricing app and the fastest way to find accurate, up-to-date coin pricing when you're at shows or anytime you're away from your laptop or desktop computer. Unlike some other coin apps, with the PCGS Price Guide App you don't need to know a coin's certification number to find the coin you're looking for."
The new app also can be used for quickly locating specific coins available for purchase because it conveniently includes a "Shop Now" feature with direct links to eBay listings of available coins.
"The combination of the market's first mobile coin pricing app and the ability to instantly look for the coins you're seeking makes this the best coin pricing app in the world," Willis stated.
The PCGS Price Guide App is the latest in a series of easy-to-use smart phone and tablet applications from Collectors Universe. The other apps include Coinflation for metal melt values and PCGS PhotoGrade for determining the condition of coins.
There also are mobile websites for PCGS CoinFacts, the Internet's most comprehensive encyclopedia of United States coinage, and Collectors Corner's mobile CoinSearch™ for finding coins, currencies and collectibles at trade shows. Mobile capabilities also extend to PCGS's main web pages – PCGS.com (m.PCGS.com), PCGSEurope.com (m.PCGSEurope.com) and PCGSAsia.com (m.PCGSAsia.com).
"PCGS is proud to give collectors and dealers worldwide a full suite of coin data services, whether at home, in a coin shop or at a coin show," said Willis.
