On Dec. 12, Numismatic Guaranty Corporation® (NGC®) announced that US coins graded by PCGS will now be eligible for NGC Registry competitive sets.
The NGC Registry is a free online platform where collectors register and display their coins and compete against other collectors around the world for recognition and prizes. The resource boasts more than 15,000 users, 130,000 registered sets and 1.1 million registered coins.
To participate in the NGC Registry, collectors add their NGC-certified coins and PCGS-certified US coins to predefined set categories such as Washington Quarters, 1932-1998 or Morgan Dollars, 1878-1921. The set categories have slots for each coin needed to complete the set. When a user adds a coin to a slot, it receives a point score based on its grade, relative rarity, and value. These scores are then tallied and each user’s set is ranked based on its total score.
Every January, the top set in each category receives an icon of recognition. The best sets in the entire NGC Registry receive prizes including a $500 NGC grading credit, a plaque and an icon of recognition. More than $20,000 in prizes will be awarded this January.
Another big announcement is the addition of Autobuild Set, which makes it easier to build the best set, improve a set’s ranking and compete for NGC Registry awards. It works by automatically filling each slot of a new set or an existing set with the highest-scoring available coin for that slot.
