(Geneva, Switzerland) -- Collectors and dealers attending the Bourse Numismatique Geneva 2014 show on 14 December in Geneva, Switzerland, will have the opportunity to personally meet with representatives of Professional Coin Grading Service (www.PCGSeurope.com), the world's leader in the authentication and grading of vintage and modern coins.
PCGS-certified coins will be among the highlights of auctions that will be conducted in Geneva on 24 and 25 November by Numismatica Genevensis Auctions (NGSA); on 26 November by Chaponnière & Firmenich; and on 13 December by Maison Palombo Geneve.
"It is amazing to witness year after year the increasing quality of the Swiss Geneva auctions which are happening around this show, and seeing more PCGS-graded rare coins in the auctions. The NGSA auction includes a unique set of Indochina pattern Tael that are referenced in the latest book by Mr. Jean Lecompte, a well-known PCGS expert on Indochina and Asian coins. We thank these auctioneers and the show organizers for trusting PCGS authenticating and grading expertise," said Ms. Muriel Eymery, PCGS Vice President of International Development.
"Our team will be at Bourse Numismatique Geneva on 14 December to explain PCGS grading
standards and how PCGS certification of coins brings maximum value, maximum liquidity and maximum security. We'll also be talking about the fun and the benefits of the PCGS Set Registry program," Ms. Muriel added.
Mr. Paul Noel, the show's organizer and a member of the Committee of the Swiss Numismatic Association, told Ms. Eymery: "Thank you for your support and participation at the Geneva show."
Visitors to the show will be able to see for the first time in person the new one-ounce .9999 fine platinum coin designed by Swiss artist Roger Pfund and produced by Swiss Bullion Corporation. The PCGS Paris Submission Center recently graded the two one-kilo gold proof patterns produced for this series.
