Numismatic Guaranty Corporation of America (NGC) will continue as the American Numismatic Association?s grading service of choice.
Under an agreement reached with Certified Collectibles Group (CCG), the parent company, Numismatic Conservation Services, LLC (NCS) also will continue as the ANA?s conservation service of choice.
A new addition is the naming of Paper Money Guaranty, LLC (PMG) as the paper money grading service of choice. This is the first time ANA has chosen a paper money grading service of choice.
ANA Executive Director Chris Cipoletti has announced that under the terms of the contract CCG will provide the ANA $350,000 per year through 2012, with the option to renew the contract at that time for another five years.
All ANA members can continue to submit coins directly to NGC, without going through a third party. In addition, fellow CCG member companies PMG and NCS will accept direct submissions from ANA members.
The ability to submit objects directly to CCG?s numismatic companies constitutes one of the most relevant and widely-used ANA member benefits. NGC has been the ANA?s official grading service since 1995 and NCS has been the ANA?s conservation service of choice since 2000.
?Our company is proud of its close relationship with the ANA,? said Steve Eichenbaum, chief executive officer of CCG. ?We believe in the mission of the association, and enjoy being of service to its members.?
NGC will be a Title Sponsor of the ANA?s World?s Fair of Money at the $10,000 level and of the National Money Show at the $7,500 level for the duration of the contract. In addition, CCG will provide instructors in grading and conservation for a number of ANA educational programs, including Summer Seminar and ANA conventions.
?We?re excited to continue this successful relationship,? said Cipoletti. ?CCG?s expertise, professionalism and dedication to numismatic education provide a great fit for the Association.?
