NGC Updates CAC Sticker Scores in the NGC Registry

The following is a Press Release from Numismatic Guaranty Company (NGC) announcing that its online resource, the NGC Registry, will allow CAC coins to be identified and viewed. Scores will also be attributed to these coins in the Registry.

The NGC Registry is a free online resource from Numismatic Guaranty Company® (NGC®) where collectors can display their coins and compete with other collectors from around the world for prizes and recognition. Nearly 33,000 collectors display a total of more than 1.7 million coins in the NGC Registry. 

The NGC Registry currently accepts coins certified by NGC and most US coins certified by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS). In addition, recognition is provided for US coins that have received a sticker from Certified Acceptance Corporation (CAC).

Effective July 25, 2023, CAC-stickered coins will receive the same point score in the NGC Registry as coins certified by NGC and PCGS. This change will help to ensure a more level playing field for all participants in the NGC Registry. The point scores for any CAC-stickered coins already listed in the NGC Registry will be updated, along with any newly added CAC-stickered coins. 

NGC plans to continue to recognize whether a US coin has received a CAC sticker. However, since early June, NGC has been unable to use CAC’s tool to verify whether a coin has received a CAC sticker. NGC has been informed by CAC that this issue will be resolved soon, at which point the NGC Registry will resume recognition of coins that have received a CAC sticker. 

NGC has not yet made any decision about whether to accept CAC-graded coins in the NGC Registry because the service is still not widely available.
