SARASOTA, FLA. (February 13, 2017) — Numismatic Guaranty Corporation® (NGC®) has released a new mobile app that features some of the most popular research tools from the world’s largest third-party coin grading service. Optimized for both smartphones and tablets, the free NGC app is available now in the App Store and Google Play.
The NGC app includes the essential Verify NGC Certification resource, an enhanced NGC Census and the latest NGC news. Users can also sign up for an NGC membership through the app.
In reflection of NGC’s growing international presence, the app can be viewed in English as well as Simplified and Traditional Chinese. Support for additional languages is planned for the future.
With the Verify NGC Certification tool, users can simply scan the barcode on an NGC label with their device’s camera to verify the NGC holder and quickly view NGC Census population data as well as NGC Price Guide values for US coins. Images are also displayed for nearly 15 million NGC-certified coins.
A free NGC membership allows users to browse an enhanced version of the NGC Census, which displays population data for NGC-certified US and world coins by type and grade, including NGC Details grades. The NGC Census is updated weekly.
The latest NGC news and research articles are delivered to the NGC app as soon as they are published. Those who want to be the first to know about NGC labels, services or other news can sign up for push notifications and receive an alert on their smartphone or tablet.
We are excited to be able to use some of the latest technologies to make it easier than ever to research NGC-certified coins, says Steven R. Eichenbaum, CEO of NGC. This app is just one the many ways that NGC tries to help collectors and dealers around the world make more informed buying and selling decisions.
