PCGS 30th Anniversary continues into November at Paris Grading Event with Free Commemorative Medals
(Paris, France) – Though the year is coming to an end, the 30th anniversary celebration continues for Professional Coin Grading Service (www.PCGSeurope.com). The leading coin authentication and grading company will offer free commemorative medals during its upcoming Paris Grading Week, held November 14-18, 2016.
The medals are meant to symbolize the company’s global reach, and have been coveted by collectors ever since the design was unveiled.
“The year may almost be over, but we’ll continue to celebrate our 30th anniversary. And we invite the global numismatic community to join us. These medals have been wildly popular since we introduced them, and we’d like to give everyone an opportunity to add one to their collection,” said Don Willis, PCGS President.
Any collector or dealer who submits 50 or more coins for onsite grading during the November Paris Grading Week will receive the commemorative medal for free. There is a limit of one medal per customer, while supplies last. The cutoff date for onsite coin and banknote submissions is Monday, November 14 at noon.
Along with the commemorative medals, the 30th anniversary “Old Green Holder” labels are still available. The label pays homage to the original label used in 1986, when the company first launched.
“These minimalist yet stylish labels remind us of our simple beginnings 30 years ago. We introduced them in the United States in February of this year, and they remain a focal point of our 30-year birthday. The labels are available for vintage and modern coin submissions for either Standard Service or Secure Service with the distinctive PCGS Secure Gold Shield on the label,” explained Mr. Willis.
The cost is 7€ per coin, in addition to the authentication and grading fee. Coins submitted for the anniversary insert label must be submitted separately from submissions for regular labels.
There is no guaranteed delivery date for this event. Contact PCGS Paris office for further inquiries.
Since its founding in 1986, Professional Coin Grading Service has become the industry standard in third-party certification. With offices in California, Paris, Shanghai and Hong Kong, PCGS experts have certified over 33 million coins with a total market value of over US$30 billion.
