Numismatic Guaranty Corporation has announced the release of what it calls the most comprehensive online reference for U.S. coins today. The new NGC Coin Explorer is a free research tool designed as a resource for both dealers and collectors, whether buying or selling coins.
Both new and advanced collectors will find the NGC Coin Explorer accessible when trying to find out more about coins they own or when researching coins they are considering buying. The reference lists more than 30,000 United States issues, including Colonials, patterns and territorials on more than 9,300 web pages.
Each coin’s information is listed on one page, including images, specifications (mintage figures, designer and weight), detailed description and analysis. Current melt values are given for all gold, silver and platinum coins. The page also highlights census details, price guide values, eligible varieties, pertinent NGC newsletter articles, registry scores and competitive registry sets.
The NGC Coin Explorer will also soon include auction information, working with prominent auction houses such as Heritage and Stack’s-Bowers. Upcoming auctions and information on prices realized will be available for each coin, and advanced filters will allow users to sort the data.
“The beauty of the NGC Coin Explorer is that collectors and dealers will find everything they need to know about a particular U.S. coin all in one place,” said Steve Eichenbaum, NGC CEO. “Everything from census reports and images to registry scores and auction information is right there at your fingertips, 24/7, on the NGC website.”
The NGC Coin Explorer will continue to be expanded in the future with new additional resources, says NGC.
