    They are offering PCGS grading again, in fact only a 1 coin minimum now.

    Inspired by the latest @Bullion Now video I found Coin Shop Matt's YouTube channel - on this one he discusses PCGS with Eric from Drake Sterling. Nice one!

    Is there any real difference between to two companies and the security of their cases?
    I always assumed that PCGS were the best?

    Not really. PCGS agents will tell you no one buys NGC. NGC agents will tell you no one buys PCGS. Both are very good at grading US coins but anything else, including Australian coins, grades are often random numbers and the slab's true value is in authenticity of the coin and conserviing it long term.

    All depends on the coin and where it's being sold. For example Melbourne shield sovs are better in NGC for British buyers. Early Sydney sovereigns are better in PCGS for Australian buyers.

    Some of the PCGS grading of Australian pre-decimal coins is sometimes "odd" IMHO.

    Therefore, the adage "buy the coin, not the grade" has much wisdom.

    ..cause you can’t afford to buy the coin once it has been graded.
