Silver Will Continue To Appreciate And Protect Your Capital

Who Is Grading and Certifying Numis Network Coins?

There are a lot of companies advertising the need to invest in gold and silver. This type of investment is touted as a hedge against inflation and it is suggested that it is safe because neither metal has been worth zero. The problem is that in my lifetime both gold and silver has been worth more and less then they are today. This flotation in value is exactly why companies selling gold and silver as an investment will suggest diversification.

They will counsel an investor to put a percentage of his or her investment is bullion coins and the rest in either semi-numismatic or numismatic coins. Numismatic means that the coin has a value higher then its metal content. The value of a numismatic coin varies depending on the grade of that coin. Each coin is inspected and assigned a grade by a coin grading service.

If you check with anyone in the coin selling community they will most likely agree that there four main coin grading services in the United States.

1. PCGS or Professional Coin Grading Service, which was founded in 1986. This company has a pretty significant following with the coin selling community, and is thought to be one of the best authenticating and grading companies.

2. NGC or Numismatic Guaranty Corporation, which was established in 1987. NGC is also given high marks by the coin selling community.

3. ICG or Independent Coin Grading, which was founded in 1998 is the youngest of the big four coin grading companies. They are developing a reliable reputation in the coin selling community. They will also grade and certify ancient coins.

4. ANACS or American Numismatic Association Certification Service, founded in 1972 is the oldest of the big four coin graders and one of the most respected. ANACS was one of the first companies to offer a service for grading coins when there was no one else that provided that service. In recent years this company has been willing to grade and certify modern issue coins.

Major coin sellers, like Goldline International or Lear Capital are selling coins that have been graded and certified by one of four grading services. There is a very close relationship between coin graders and coin sellers. The coin seller sets his price based on the mint state certification of coin by one of the grading services, and then they will suggest that the particular grader has an outstanding reputation. The grading services of course benefits when a high volume coin seller promotes their good reputation.

This is precisely what Numis Network does. They are distributing coins that are graded and certified to be in the highest mint state condition or MS70. Their coins are graded and certified by ANACS the oldest grading service in the United States. Numis Network is not working with ANACS because they are the oldest, but because they are really the first to begin grading modern issue coins.

Numis Network is different then any other major coin seller because they are willing to stand behind their coins and the certifications given by ANACS. No other coin seller today will sell you a coin and then promise to buy it back in five years at the price it was sold for. Call anyone of those other coin sellers that advertise on television and radio today and see if they will give you that same guarantee on a semi-numismatic or numismatic coin. You won’t get it. Only Numis Network guarantees the value of the coins they are selling.
