Ive observed that some organisations like NGC , evaluate the coin and certify about the condition, but sadly they dont have a collection centre in India, is anyone aware of other organisations where we can get our coins certified in India?

There is a new TPG called NGS started by Dilip Rajgor in India. It is very new and is fast growing but no where close to the global acceptance NGC or PCGS has. I have heard they grade and sell their own coins.

You might want to do your due diligence before using their services.

We had a discussion regarding overgrading by NGS sometime back. Here is the link to the topic. Unfortunately the picture used in the topic discussion is no longer available because the site expired. I can pretty much assure everyone that NGS graded slabs are wastage of money and as Tarmas said, their only benefit is conservation of the coin in a plastic slab. I also wonder what qualification for grading their graders has. I atleast know one of their graders and its nada. You can see how PCGS grades their coins in our video gallery.

Here is NGS's web address. You can contact them and ask for submission rates.

Also I believe the decision of TPG is not a question of which grader's services are cheapest but is of accuracy. If the grades of coins assigned are inaccurate from industry standard then it eliminates the whole need of getting the coins graded in the first place :D . In case of rare coins, a difference of single Sheldon point may mean difference of a few hundred dollars. For not so rare coins I advice getting coins slabbed by ANACS as they are very accurate and respected for a 2nd tier TPG and also less costly (assuming).

another problem with foreign greaders is--most of our expensive coins which are worth greading are from british period and over 100 years old..so sending them abroade is illigal without permission from customes(or maybe some other department, i don't clearly remember ) :(

I never submitted my coins for grading. I don't see logic in wasting money on plastic slabbing coins when I don't have any ambitious objective like building a registry set or collection nor selling my coins. Knowing the exact grade of my coins would serve me no meaningful purpose compared to the dollars spend.


However, whilst buying a coin of high value, of which I have no expertise of regarding authentication or attribution; I won't mind paying extra dollars to buy a slab graded by a reputed TPG.


Lastly, in my opinion it's perfectly safe to send coins out of India in mail however it's not safe at all to receive coins from outside India. Take help of relatives and friends settled abroad to transport the graded coins.

ANACS FAQ page answers questions like yours :)
