NGC to Grade Coins On-site in Munich in February

Posted on 1/16/2018

The event in Munich is a first for the world’s largest third-party coin grading service.

NGC International GmbH (NGC GmbH), the German affiliate of Numismatic Guaranty Corporation® (NGC®), will offer on-site NGC coin grading services for the first time in Munich, Germany, in February. The on-site grading event will be held from February 27 to March 3, 2018.

Some of the numismatic world’s top authenticators and graders — including NGC Chairman & Finalizer Mark Salzberg and NGC Vice President & Finalizer Ken Krah — will be present for this event. Mark and Ken each have more than 30 years of experience in professional numismatics.

Coins will be accepted by NGC International GmbH (NGC GmbH), a wholly owned subsidiary of Numismatic Guaranty Corporation International, itself a wholly owned subsidiary of NGC. Founded in 1987, NGC is the world's leading and largest third-party coin grading service with nearly 40 million coins certified.

NGC authenticates coins, grades them according to an internationally recognized scale of 1 to 70, and encapsulates them in its proprietary holders designed for security and long-term preservation. Coins certified by NGC are backed by the NGC Guarantee, which provides recourse in the rare event that NGC certifies a not genuine coin or overgrades a coin.

On-site grading in Munich provides European collectors and dealers with significantly faster turnaround times. As an added benefit, no additional fees will be charged for the faster turnaround times.

All vintage and modern coins are eligible for this event. This includes CrossOver submissions, coins that require Double Thick Holders (up to 9mm in thickness) and coins that require NGC Oversize Holders (up to 101.5mm in diameter and 25mm in thickness). Note: Ancient coins and coins requiring NCS conservation cannot be accepted for on-site grading, but they can be shipped to NGC's US headquarters for grading.

Note: A new version of the NGC Europe Submission Form MUST be completed to submit coins for this on-site grading event. If you do not have a copy of the new form, please contact NGC International GmbH at (+49) 89 255 47 545 or The form will also be available online at starting February 1, 2018.
