Message from Don Willis

As you read this many of us from PCGS are either on our way or already in Shanghai, China for the grand opening of PCGS’ new office. We are looking forward to this new adventure with great anticipation and just a little trepidation. China produces millions of collector coins each year. Coin collecting has seen a renaissance in recent years with increased collector interest and substantial price increases. As in any new venture we realize that we have our work cut out for us. Third party grading is still a relatively new concept in China but is rapidly growing in acceptance. We have launched a new website www.pcgs.com.cn to better serve our Chinese customers. If you are ever in Shanghai please stop by and visit our office which is centrally located in Shanghai.
