“A free gold coin will be given away as a door prize on each day of the three-day show,” said Ronald J. Gillio, expo general chairman. “In addition, Professional Coin Grading Service will award a $20 Saint-Gaudens gold coin valued at over $2,000 as the prize in its coin grading competition.”
A Saint-Gaudens double eagle graded PCGS Secure Plus MS-65 will go to the winner of the Collectors Club Grading Contest, said PCGS President Don Willis.
“We’ll also have a special coin grading competition for Young Numismatists in high school and pre-high school categories, and the winner in each category will receive a PCGS-certified MS-65 Morgan dollar.”
The competition will be open to current members of the PCGS Collectors Club and active PCGS Set RegistrySM members. It will not be open to dealers.
“Adult participants will have to grade 20 U.S. coins of random denominations and dates that have been previously certified by PCGS, but their holder inserts will not show the grade,” explained BJ Searls, PCGS Set RegistrySM manager. “The winner will be the collector who has the most correct grades, ‘correct’ defined as matching the PCGS grade exactly.”
