Whether you are a coin collector or coin dealer, before you buy a coin online, it is vital to verify its authenticity. That’s where the PCGS Cert Verification mobile app comes in.
The Cert Verification App makes that confirmation process much easier and much faster. Rather than typing in the coin’s certification number, simply scan the bar code (obverse) or QR code (reverse) found on the coin label.
With this app, users get access to valuable information, such as the coin’s denomination, date and mintmark, grade, mintage, holder type, PCGS Population and PCGS Price Guide value.
Supplemental coin information may also be available, such as a high resolution image of the coin, the coin’s last auction appearance and its current presence in any PCGS Set Registry sets.
• Quick, on-the-go cert verification
• Scan the coin’s barcode or QR code for instant verification
• Access to the coin’s holder type, PCGS population, Price Guide value and more
It’s important to note that verification of certification numbers on the PCGS Certification Database will not entirely eliminate the risk of buying counterfeit coins, as there is always a slight chance counterfeiters may use counterfeit PCGS grading inserts.
To further reduce the risk of counterfeit coins, PCGS encourages coin purchases from verified PCGS Authorized Dealers.
