The appointment of Metro Coin & Banknote as an Official Submission Center for NGC, NCS and PMG means improved services for the growing collectibles market in Canada.

“This partnership marks an exciting milestone that will make it much more convenient for Canadians to submit their numismatic collectibles for NGC, NCS and PMG’s services. By working hand in hand, we will provide the highest levels of efficiency and care to collectors in Canada,” said Steven R. Eichenbaum, CEO of the Certified Collectibles Group, of which NGC, NCS and PMG are part.

NGC is a leading third-party authentication, grading and encapsulation service for collectible coins, tokens and medals. Founded in 1987, NGC has graded more than 60 million collectibles. NGC-certified coins are backed by the NGC Guarantee of authenticity and grade, which provides consumers with greater protection. This guarantee, coupled with the knowledge and experience of the company’s graders, gives buyers greater confidence. This results in higher prices realized and greater liquidity for NGC-certified coins. The American Numismatic Association (ANA) and the Professional Numismatists Guild (PNG) have named NGC their official coin grading service.

NCS is the world’s first and foremost professional numismatic conservation service, with over one million coins, tokens and medals conserved since its founding in 2001. From within a state-of-the-art secure facility, NCS uses various proprietary techniques to remove harmful surface contaminants, stabilize and protect a coin’s surfaces, and improve eye appeal. The ANA and PNG have both named NCS their conservation service of choice.

PMG was founded in 2005 as a fully independent third-party paper money grading service. With an unparalleled commitment to accuracy, consistency and integrity, PMG is the world’s largest third-party paper money grading service with over 10 million notes certified. Every note that PMG grades is backed by the comprehensive PMG guarantee of authenticity and grade, which gives buyers and sellers greater confidence. The ANA and PNG have named PMG their official paper money grading service.

Collectibles can be submitted to Metro Coin & Banknote at its office at 722 Annette St., Toronto, Ontario M6S 2E2, Canada. For more information about Metro Coin & Banknote and submitting collectibles, call the company’s office at (416) 604-9410 or email
