NGC debuts app for smartphones, tablets

Numismatic Guaranty Corporation has released a new mobile app that features some of its most popular research tools, the coin grading service announced Feb. 13.


With the Verify NGC Certification tool, users can scan the barcode on an NGC label with their device’s camera to verify the NGC holder and quickly view NGC Census population data as well as NGC Price Guide values for U.S. coins. Images are also displayed for nearly 15 million NGC-certified coins.

A free NGC membership allows users to browse an enhanced version of the NGC Census, which displays population data for NGC-certified U.S. and world coins by type and grade, including NGC Details grades. The NGC Census is updated weekly.

Optimized for both smartphones and tablets, the free app is available in Apple’s App Store and on Google Play.
