The companies’ collaboration will make NGC, NCS, and PMG services more accessible to collectors and dealers in Singapore and throughout the region.
The Certified Collectibles Group (CCG) has appointed the Singapore Mint an Official Submission Center in Singapore. CCG’s independent member companies include Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), Numismatic Conservation Services (NCS), and Paper Money Guaranty (PMG).
Established in 1968, the Singapore Mint’s initial mandate was to produce coins for circulation for the new nation. It now produces a variety of commemorative coins and currency-related collectibles.
The Singapore Mint is the first mint to act as an Official Submission Center for the CCG companies. This relationship will make it easier for collectors and dealers in Singapore to buy NGC-certified Singapore coins directly from the source.
The Singapore Mint will also help collectors and dealers submit to NGC. (Assistance with NCS and PMG submissions will be available at a later date.) It can also answer questions about the companies’ services and benefits.
The Singapore Mint is the second Official Submission Center for the CCG companies in Singapore. The first, Mavin International, was appointed in 2008.
Established in 1987, NGC is the world’s largest third-party collectible coin grading service with more than 42 million coins certified. PMG, the world’s largest third-party paper money grading service, has certified more than 3.5 million banknotes, more than half of them from Asia. NCS is a leading professional coin conservation service with more than one million coins conserved.
“We are honored to work directly with the Singapore Mint, a numismatic leader in Southeast Asia for half a century,” said Mr. Steven R. Eichenbaum, CEO of CCG. “The Singapore Mint has long been known as an innovator, bringing together advanced technology and superior craftsmanship. Our shared commitment to excellence provides many opportunities for synergy.”
“NGC, NCS, and PMG are highly respected in Singapore and around the world for their expertise and impartiality,” said Mr. Yip Pak Ling, director of the Singapore Mint. “Our collaboration with these companies will benefit our customers and help to grow the hobby in Singapore.” To submit to the Singapore Mint, contact: +65 6566-2626, , or visit the website of the Singapore Mint.
