Coin Registry Matters

Coin Registry Matters

I know this may be an elementary question but I have looked around the archives for information. Is there any benefit to listing your coins in the coin registry, for example NGC or PCGS? Does NGC allow you to list PCGS certified coins and medals, and give you points for them? I am wondering if to list some of mine. I’ll appreciate feedback and additional information. Thanks!

I have a couple of friends who use the registry, we're somewhat competing and counting up points. PCGS does not get any points, you can register but you don't get any points in a competitve sets.

Once upon a time you could list your PCGS coins and medals in your NGC sets. I don't believe that is the case any longer. Listing your coins and medals in NGC sets is a way to compete with other collectors and to display your collection for others to see, study and possibly admire. I am not aware of any other reasons but if other forum members have some, I would be interested in hearing them. As a possible side benefit, if your coins and medals were lost ( theft or fire ) then you would have a record of the coins and medals in your set for insurance or major loss tax deductions.

You can still list them in a custom set, but just not a competitive set. Basically no points, but you can keep a registry. As far as insurance, perhaps but not from the insurance company. They would required proof of purchase and possibly a separate policy addon depending on the insurer. I think I will ask because now I'm curious.

Thanks for information. Very useful. I have looked at various coin and medal sets, and many have been inspiring.

Admittedly my initial search was perfunctionary. I have now gone back to the CCF archives and picked up more gems, so to speak! Just wanted to share some of them here:
