PCGS The Standard for the Rare Coin Industry

Gold Shield Security - The PCGS Holder

  • Maximum Value
  • Maximum Security
  • Maximum Liquidity

PCGS has once again raised the bar for numismatic security, creating a holder that is virtually impossible to replicate.

The PCGS holder is built with covert and overt security features, and enables collectors to readily verify the authenticity of the holder.

A Better Weld for Improved Durability

The PCGS holder features reformulated plastic and a new design that creates a much stronger weld. The result is a holder that is more difficult to chip, holds up better to drops, and more readily reveals tampering.
