PCGS reopens California offices

After temporarily ceasing operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) has reopened its offices in Orange County, Calif., effective April 15.

A day earlier, California Governor Gavin Newsom unveiled a plan to ease restrictions using a “gradual, science-based and data-driven framework” but provided no timeline. For PCGS, turnaround times for submissions were impacted following the nearly four-week closure, and delays are expected.

Going forward, new safety protocols prohibit in-person drop-offs and pick-ups; submissions are only being accepted by mail, and PCGS is unable to accommodate special requests on any submissions.

“Due to the liquidity we provide to numismatic trading markets worldwide, PCGS is essential and able to operate as needed during the current global pandemic,” said PCGS President Brett Charville, who added the third-party grading service “developed and implemented an ongoing safety plan that ensures the well-being of both employees and customers alike.”
