Numismatic Guaranty Corporation introduced Dec. 3 NGC Mobile, a new mobile site that allows collectors to verify an NGC certification on cell phones, PDAs and other mobile devices.

The site can be accessed from any mobile browser at http://m.ngccoin.com.

This new site is part of NGC’s ongoing initiative to provide protection to coin collectors, the firm said. In late 2008, NGC introduced a high-security holder and began photographing all tier-level submissions. These images were made available using a Web-accessible verification tool early in 2009. Now this mobile site makes it possible to verify the authenticity of any NGC-certified coin using a mobile device, anywhere at anytime.

“The series of enhanced security services that NGC has introduced offer a level of protection never before available in the rare coin marketplace,” said Steve Eichenbaum, CEO of NGC.

NGC Mobile is free to use and open to all. Step-by-step instructions are available on NGC’s Web site, www.ngccoin.com.

It is fully compatible with cell phones and other devices that use Wireless Application Protocol, a platform chosen to ensure the site functions on the broadest possible range of devices, NGC said.

Each page load consists of just 1 kb of data and images are less than 25 kb, optimizing the site in areas where high-speed coverage is not available and responsibly managing bandwidth usage.
