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

One of the ‘Ask Don’ questions this week comes from someone who came into possession of a large group of coins and is trying to determine what they are worth. This got me thinking about all the tools that PCGS has developed with this person in mind. Tools like PCGS Photograde, PCGS Price Guide, PCGS CoinFacts and others are available on our website and are also available in mobile versions. PCGS has also developed a family of mobile applications so you can take these collecting tools on the road or to shows. With a little bit of patience even the novice collector – or non-collector – can get an idea of what they have and approximately what it might be worth. Remember a smart buyer or seller is already ahead in the game!

Happy Collecting,

Don Willis
President, PCGS
