CCG to Open Tokyo Office in 2024

Posted on 1/9/2024

The new office will make it easier for collectors and dealers in Japan and the surrounding region to submit to NGC, PMG and CGC.


The Certified Collectibles Group® (CCG®) is excited to announce that it will open an office in Tokyo, Japan, in 2024.

CCG is a global leader in expert, impartial and tech-enabled services for collectibles. Its iconic brands include some of the world’s largest and most trusted third-party authentication, grading and encapsulation services:

  • Numismatic Guaranty Company® (NGC®), which certifies coins, tokens and medals
  • Paper Money Guaranty® (PMG®), which certifies banknotes
  • Certified Guaranty Company® (CGC®), which certifies pop culture collectibles such as comic books, trading card games (TCGs), sports cards, video games and home video collectibles

Together, CCG’s brands have certified more than 88 million collectibles since 1987.

NGC, PMG and CGC employ highly trained specialists who authenticate collectibles, assign a grade to them on internationally recognized scales and then encapsulate the collectibles in secure holders designed for long-term preservation. Strict policies prevent conflicts of interest, and collectibles certified by NGC, PMG and CGC are backed by industry-leading guarantees, which provide further protection for both buyers and sellers.

Certification by NGC, PMG and CGC adds significant value, transparency and confidence to collectibles markets around the world. This results in higher prices realized for NGC-certified coins, PMG-certified banknotes and CGC-certified collectibles.

CCG is headquartered in Sarasota, Florida, USA, where it operates a 100,000-square-foot campus dedicated to expert services for collectibles. CCG also has locations in London, Munich, Shanghai and Hong Kong, as well as more than 40 Official Submission Centers in regions around the world.

Collectibles submitted to CCG’s Tokyo office will be transported with full insurance coverage (based on the submitter’s declared value) to CCG Headquarters for authentication, grading and encapsulation. The collectibles will then be transported back to the Tokyo office (again with full insurance coverage) to be returned to the submitter.

“Tokyo is home to a vibrant collecting community, and collectors and dealers across Japan have sought out the expert certification services provided by the CCG companies for many years,” said Steven R. Eichenbaum, CEO of CCG. “Now, with an office in Tokyo, we’ll be able to better and more directly serve the Japanese market, working to meet its unique needs from a location that’s welcoming and convenient.”

Further details, including grading fees and the date of the office opening, will be announced soon.
