Collectors Club Submit Coins Price Guide Set Registry CoinFacts
From Don's Desk

I just returned from the grand opening of the new PCGS office in Shanghai, China. What a spectacular welcome we received! The Shanghai Coin Expo was organized around our inaugural week of grading. This two day show was very well attended by dealers and collectors from all over China. The opening ceremony welcoming PCGS was attended by an enthusiastic standing room only crowd. Several exceptional Chinese coins were on display including the most valuable Chinese silver and gold coins, both graded by PCGS. The Chinese market for certified coins is young and exciting and will continue to be a major focus for PCGS. If you have never been to Shanghai you should pay a visit. It's a beautiful city with entire buildings devoted to coin markets. Hopefully we will see you there!
