The following is a Press Release from Numismatic Guaranty Company (NGC) announcing that its Coin Explorer site is now optimized for all devices. This includes smartphones and tablets. The change is particularly noticeable on smartphones with the site now scaled and optimized to work on iPhone and Android phones without having to do side swipes to view information or coin images.

The site is also optimized nicely for tablets such as an iPad or Samsung Galaxy Tab. The too includes less side swipes to read content but also scales the site to work better on those devices. It is a significant step forward by NGC on this valuable and useful resource for collectors.
