Celebrating 30 Years of Accuracy, Consistency and Integrity
NGC was established in 1987 to provide an expert and impartial assessment of a coin's authenticity and grade, protecting collectors and dealers from counterfeit and overgraded coins. Today, NGC is a world leader with seven locations and more than 43 million coins certified.
Evolution of the NGC Holder
NGC has continually invested in enhancements to the security and aesthetics of its holder. In 2008, and again in 2014, the Smithsonian Institution selected NGC holders to preserve some of its most important rarities.
