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

We are all collectors at heart. It gives me great pleasure to sit back, unwind, and enjoy my coins! Often on a Saturday morning I will spend a couple hours going through one of my collections, studying my coins and learning more about them. For security reasons, most of us keep our collections in a safety deposit box, however, I can enjoy my coins while in a comfortable chair with my laptop using the PCGS Registry and My CoinFacts! The My CoinFacts addition to the PCGS Registry is a wonderful improvement that helps me get closer to my coins (the blowup feature is far better than a magnifying glass) while keeping me informed on market activities and other important information. Check out this week’s video for a brief introduction to My CoinFacts.

Central America 2.0
by Mike Sherman

It’s back! Some 27 years after the discovery of the S.S. Central America, and about a dozen years after the original offering of lost treasures from the 1857 shipwreck, another load from the ocean floor is about to begin the process which will eventually lead to its entry into the numismatic marketplace.

The Curious Case of Judd 1022

PCGS recognizes both Mint State and Proof versions of Judd 1022, but researchers have always wondered why such a rare pattern would be struck in two formats, or if they really were.
