(Berlin, Germany) -- The annual World Money Fair in Berlin, Germany is known as the world’s largest coin fair. Collectors and dealers attending this year's 30 January to 1 February show will have the opportunity to personally meet with representatives of Professional Coin Grading Service (www.PCGSeurope.com) and submit their coins to PCGS, the world's leader in the authentication and grading of vintage and modern coins.
PCGS-certified coins also will be among the highlights of the show's official auction conducted by Fritz Rudolf Künker Auction House on 29 January.
While supplies last, visitors to the PCGS booth during the show can receive a free souvenir coin in a PCGS holder with a special World Money Fair Berlin commemorative insert label.
"The PCGS team will be meeting with collectors and dealers and taking coin submissions in Berlin starting on 28 January at the Estrel Convention Center before the show begins there. PCGS then will have two booths at the show, B3 and H79, starting on opening day, 30 January," said Ms. Muriel Eymery, PCGS Vice President of International Business Development.
"The World Money Fair Berlin has become very important, not only for European modern and vintage coins and for primary and secondary markets' players, but also for worldwide mints, dealers and collectors. They can discuss their specific requirements face to face with PCGS representatives at the show. Also, seeing such a prestigious auctioneer as Künker now featuring more and more PCGS graded coins is a key indicator of even larger trust in and value of our expertise and services," emphasized Ms. Eymery.
