PCGS slabs 40 million coins

Slabbing 40 million coins is no easy task.


That milestone has been reached by the Professional Coin Grading Service, which was founded in 1986.

The pioneer of third-party commercial grading firms reports that a Kano Natsuo 1 yen has been graded PCGS SP64 and now has a distinctive certification number of 40000000 on the insert label.

“We are really happy to have this as our 40 millionth coin,” said PCGS President Don Willis.

“On behalf of PCGS and the hundreds of employees we have around the world, I want to thank you, our customers, most sincerely for all of the support you have given us,” Willis added.
