UPDATED: NGC Grading and NCS Conserving Coins On-site in Hong Kong in March 2020
Posted on 1/16/2020
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation™ (NGC®) will perform on-site authentication, grading and encapsulation of coins, tokens and medals in Hong Kong, March 23-28, 2020, at the office of NGC Hong Kong Ltd., its Hong Kong affiliate.
Numismatic Conservation Services™ (NCS®), an affiliate of NGC, will perform on-site conservation at the same time. The presence of both NGC and NCS allows submitters to have their vintage and modern coins professionally conserved by NCS and then seamlessly transferred to NGC for grading.
The special event coincides with two major numismatic shows in Hong Kong: the Hong Kong International Coin Convention & Antique Watch Fair (HICC), held March 24-26 at the Holiday Inn Golden Mile, and the Hong Kong Coin Show (HKCS), held March 27-29 at the Mira Hotel.
NGC on-site grading and NCS on-site conservation allow submitters to receive a significantly faster turnaround time for their submissions. As an added benefit to their customers, NGC and NCS will not charge any additional fees for on-site grading or on-site conservation. Please refer to the NGC/NCS Hong Kong Services and Fees chart for fees.
Vintage and modern coins, tokens and medals from virtually every country will be accepted. Ancient coins will not be accepted for on-site grading or conservation but will be accepted for shipment to the companies’ US headquarters.
All submissions for NGC on-site grading and NCS on-site conservation should be made to NGC Hong Kong Ltd., the companies’ Hong Kong affiliate, by Friday, March 20. Submitters are encouraged to submit as early as possible. This article will be updated if it is determined that on-site submissions need to be cut off early due to strong demand.
If your coins cannot be done on-site, you will be notified by NGC Hong Kong and your coins will be shipped to NGC headquarters in Sarasota, Florida, USA.
If you would like your coins to be included in the on-site event, you must write "March On-site Event" on the NGC/NCS Hong Kong Submission Form.
Note: The maximum number of coins per submission form is 50 for non-bulk grading tiers and 200 for bulk grading tiers. Use additional submission forms for larger quantities.
NGC and NCS will endeavor to have coins ready for pick-up by Sunday, March 29; however, this time is approximate and not guaranteed. Submissions will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis and, in the event of extremely high demand, later submissions may require a longer turnaround time.
Paid NGC Collector members (Associate and higher) and NGC Authorized Dealers are entitled to submit and pick up at NGC's Hong Kong office (by appointment only). Not a member? Learn how to join here.
