Professional Coin Grading Service’s CoinFacts®, an online resource for historical U.S. numismatic information, is now live at www.PCGSCoinFacts.com, the firm announced July 27.
The new site has been completely revamped with thousands of updates to its database and image files as well as a number of new features. PCGS calls the site ideal for both novices and advanced collectors.
“The new PCGS CoinFacts is a 25-year dream come true,” said David Hall, PCGS founder.
“It’s a multi-functional combination of numismatic encyclopedia, historical price guide and reference resources,” said Ron Guth, president of PCGS CoinFacts, a division of Collectors Universe, Inc.
Along with dedicated pages for almost 30,000 U.S. coins, PCGS CoinFacts members will have access to the PCGS Population Report, auction prices realized and an expanded price guide free with their membership. In addition to providing basic listings and mintage figures about coin types, users will find an expanded price guide for all coins in all grades, prices realized from all major auctions, survival and rarity estimates, a condition census and relative rarity comparisons.
Originally launched in 1999, CoinFacts has expanded for its tenth anniversary to provide more online information about U.S. coins ranging from Colonial and Territorial issues to circulation strikes, proofs, patterns and commemoratives.
The updated site also includes digital photographs with enlargement and zoom functions for most U.S. coins, including significant rarities.
Access to all features on the new PCGS CoinFacts Web site is available by subscription for $9.95 per month.
