NGC Collectors Society Overview

The NGC Collectors Society unites all levels of collectors in a dynamic online community. Membership is open to anyone who enjoys collecting coins, tokens or medals and wants to take advantage of our exclusive tools and resources.


Several exclusive features are available immediately when you join. One of our most popular resources is the NGC Coin Registry, the largest and most inclusive registry of its kind. Members can build their collections of NGC-certified coins online, and can choose to compete for top honors in four categories in the annual NGC Registry Awards. View the winning sets from previous years here.

Another great benefit available for Collectors Society members is participation in the Chat Boards. Members are welcome to engage in vibrant discussions about the hobby with fellow collectors and NGC numismatists — or to blog about their collections in the Collectors Journals.


We also provide a unique research tool that allows you to verify NGC certification. You can enter the serial number of any NGC-certified coin online, or from your mobile device and access a complete report. Its grade, date, denomination and — whenever possible — high-resolution images and NGC US Coin Price Guide values are available to you anytime, anywhere the hobby takes you.

More advanced collectors can consider an Associate, Premium or Elite membership. You’ll gain access to additional exclusive features, such as the NGC Census, an online population report updated weekly to offer the latest figures for NGC-graded coins; NGC Auction Central, features prices realized for NGC coins at auction; and the VarietyPlus® coin details pages, a comprehensive online guide to the coin varieties recognized by NGC. Best of all, you gain direct submission privileges to NGC, and can use our online submission forms to prepare your coins for NGC certification — all within minutes of joining.


Don’t forget that all NGC Collectors Society members may take advantage of our association with Numismatic Conservation Services (NCS), by having your coins professionally conserved prior to grading, and with Paper Money Guaranty (PMG), the leading independent currency certification company.
