Have you been keeping track of the PCGS News & Articles hub recently? If not, you may be missing out on that very article dedicated to your numismatic specialty! You see, at PCGS, we’ve been the premier resource for trusted, expert numismatic knowledge, information, and education since 1986. Over nearly 35 years, we have launched a host of innovative and incomparable tools to help collectors and dealers learn more about their coins and their favorite hobby topics, including PCGS Population Reports, PCGS CoinFacts, and PCGS Rare Coin Market Report. More recently, we’ve endeavored on yet another venue for sharing expert information with the world, and it’s absolutely free. It’s the PCGS News & Articles hub, which can be easily found midway down our homepage.
In reality, the PCGS News & Articles hub is something we’ve been working on for years now.
