Does the coin cross to your specification?


Coin is removed from current holder and crossed over to PCGS holder; you are charged the standard grading fee + 1% Guarantee Premium.


Coin is returned to you in its original holder, you are charged the standard grading fee and the Guarantee Premium does not apply.

Program Rules & Requirements

  • You cannot specify a minimum grade higher than the current grade.
  • You cannot specify a minimum details grade for genuine coins.
  • First Strike or equivalent will not be recognized.
  • If you leave the minimum grade column blank, PCGS will assume the minimum grade is the grade currently on the holder.


If the coin crosses, you will be charged the standard grading fees and you will also be charged a Guarantee Premium based on the value of the coin. If the coin does not cross, you will be charged the grading fees and the Guarantee Premium would not apply.

The Guarantee Premium is equal to 1% of the value of the coin in its final grade. The value of the coin is determined by the PCGS Price Guide value for that grade or the Declared Value of the coin, if the Price Guide value is not available. The minimum amount for the Guarantee Premium is $5. PCGS reserves the right to make the final determination of the coin’s value.
