What is PMG Certification Verification?

This tool can help you to verify that your PMG holder is genuine and has not been tampered with. It can also be a useful starting point to research your PMG-certified note.


Enter a note’s PMG certification number (circled in the image) and grade to confirm its description and grade in PMG’s database and, if available, view the images of the note taken by PMG.

  • For notes that have a grade of 1 to 70, enter the certification number, select the numeric grade in the dropdown menu and click “Go.”
  • For notes that do not have a numeric grade, enter the certification number, select “Non-Numeric” in the dropdown menu and click “Go.”
