(Hong Kong) - Collectors and dealers in Asia can now conveniently improve the appearance of their coins with the assistance of experts at Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS), the world's leader in rare coin authentication and grading. The new PCGS Restoration Service (www.PCGSAsia.com/restoration) is now available in Hong Kong.
"The PCGS Restoration Service helps eliminate environmental problems that may have occurred with your coins. Preserving originality and the natural condition of every coin is the number one goal of this service," explained PCGS President Don Willis.
Coins can be submitted for the PCGS Restoration Service by appointment at the PCGS Hong Kong Submission Center on Canton Road in Hong Kong. Coins also can be submitted to PCGS at the Hong Kong International Coin Convention & Antique Watch Fair (HICC) in the Holiday Inn Golden Mile in Kowloon, April 5 - 7, and at the pre-show there, April 2 - 4.
The PCGS Restoration Service helps restore the natural beauty of coins.
"Improper storage, accidental exposure to caustic elements or even the deliberate addition of foreign substances can detract from an otherwise beautiful coin. These problems often can be solved by the skillful application of various non-invasive and industry-accepted techniques that can return coins to their natural original condition," said Willis.
The PCGS Restoration Service is available for all United States and world coins currently accepted for authentication and grading by PCGS. Only PCGS Authorized Dealers and PCGS Collectors Club members may submit coins for PCGS Restoration Service.
"We are very excited to launch this new service with on-site PCGS grading during the HICC show in Hong Kong in early April. Many Asian collectors have been waiting for PCGS Restoration, and this is a new, value-enhancing service we can offer to them," said Muriel Eymery, PCGS Vice President of International Business Development.
"PCGS provides safety, security and value. PCGS offers an unlimited lifetime guaranty of authenticity, and certification increases your coin's value and liquidity. PCGS is recognized worldwide as the standard for coin grading," Eymery emphasized.
Since its founding in 1986, Professional Coin Grading Service experts have examined and certified over 25 million coins with a total market value of over $27 billion. PCGS is a division of Collectors Universe, Inc. (NASDAQ: CLCT).
