PCGS Shanghai Office Opens July 20|
June 26, 2013
Professional Coin Grading Service, Collectors Universe (Shanghai), Ltd. will officially open on July 20.
“The opening of the PCGS Shanghai grading center and our strategic partnership with Shanghai Quanping Collectables Co. Ltd. are the beginnings of an important new era for all collectors and dealers in China,” said Don Willis, president of PCGS, a division of Collectors Universe, Inc.
“The coin collecting community in mainland China now will be able to easily use the services of the world’s leading coin grading service. Coins that are certified and housed in the PCGS Gold Shield holder are guaranteed to be authentic and properly graded. Collectors and dealers know that the PCGS certification helps maximize the value and the liquidity of their coins,” Mr. Willis emphasized.
Modern Chinese coins dated after 1979 and vintage Chinese coins from the late 1700s to the mid 20th century locally available in mainland China will be accepted for examination by PCGS experts in Shanghai.
Coins must be submitted through Shanghai Quanping Collectables Co. Ltd., the official and exclusive agency handling coin submissions on behalf of PCGS in mainland China. Quanping is a newly formed company coordinated by Yu Jiwei, who is the chairman of www.Jibi.net.
Information will be announced soon at www.PCGS.com.cn about how to submit the coins to Quanping for certification by PCGS.
The Shanghai grading and authentication center is the first in mainland China for PCGS and is the latest new office in a continuing expansion in Asia and Europe.
Since 1986, PCGS has examined more than 26 million coins with a combined value of over US$27 billion, said David Hall, a co-founder of PCGS and the president of Collectors Universe, Inc., who will be among the dignitaries attending the official opening of the Shanghai office.
“That shows the unprecedented support of collectors and dealers around the world,” Hall said.
