Pricing & Policies
General Submissions: The restoration fee is 3% of the value of the coin in its final grade (minimum of 10€) plus the grading fee based upon the declared value of the coin. PCGS will determine all fees once the order is finalized.
10€ evaluation fee – If PCGS determines the coin(s) will not benefit from restoration, nor should be restored, the coin(s) will be submitted for grading. Coins that are not restorable will be charged a fee of $10 per coin and then sent for grading. For coins that complete the grading process, standard grading fees (based on the selected service) apply plus the evaluation fee.
The final cost of a restoration submission cannot be determined until coins have completed the restoration and grading process; consequently, the submission form costs will be estimated before the Guarantee Premium would be applied.
Modern Service: (1960 to date, maximum value 300€ per coin): 28€ per coin which includes the restoration and grading fee.
For coins that require the use of an oversized holder, there is an additional 10€ per coin.
Final cost of the submission cannot be determined until coins have completed the restoration and grading process; consequently, the submission form costs will be estimated using the declared value for each coin.
