Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) has announced that their California offices in Orange County have been closed indefinitely due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. The closure means that there are currently no coins being graded at the offices and collectors are encouraged not to send any coins in for grading at this time.
The news of the closure came just a day after the offices had opened after being closed for a day back on March 18th.
Pursuant to Executive Order N-33-20, issued on March 19, 2020 by the Governor of California, Collectors Universe’s Orange County office has closed until it is deemed safe to resume operations.
As a result, Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) and Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA) have temporarily ceased operations, effective immediately.
Customers are asked to not ship submissions to our California office until operations are reopened. If you have an inbound shipment to Collectors Universe, it will be received and securely stored at our facility.
It is evident to all that we are in uncharted territory. For now, the larger public good mandates this closure. We will share our reopen date once it is established by the state of California.
Thank you for your patience and understanding, and please stay healthy.
Like many parts of the United States, California is in a Shelter in Place status, meaning that all non-essential businesses are closed and non-essential workers are to work from home. COVID-19 has now infected over 734,000 people globally, 142,410 of those here in the United States.
