Submit your World Banknotes by Mail or In-Person to the Hong Kong Office.
Banknotes can be submitted to the PCGS Hong Kong Office by mail or in person if you are a PCGS Authorized Dealer or Collectors Club member.
If you would like to join the PCGS Collectors Club, simply select the option on the submission form. If you are an established dealer, please contact us at +852 2194 6688 to discuss becoming an authorized PCGS dealer.
You may submit banknotes through the Grading, Regrade, Crossover, or Reholder Services.
For banknotes not encapsulated or graded by any grading service.
For a banknote previously graded by PCGS Banknote, PCGS Gold Shield Grading, or PCGS Banknote Grading that you feel is worthy of a higher grade. Banknotes submitted under the regrade service will be removed from the holder and regraded. Grading fees will apply whether the banknote upgrades or not. If the banknote grades lower, the terms of the PCGS Banknote Guarantee apply. For full disclosure of the PCGS Banknote Guarantee, visit www.pcgsasia.com/banknotes/guarantee?l=en.
For a banknote previously graded (currently encapsulated) by another grading service. Minimum Grade: PCGS Banknote will holder the banknote only if it meets or exceeds the specific request noted on the “Minimum Grade” column on the front of the form.
Grading Fees will apply whether the banknote crosses or not. Please specify one of the options in the minimum grade column. If you leave this area blank, PCGS Banknote will assume the minimum grade is the grade currently on the holder.
MINIMUM GRADE OPTIONS:
CURRENT – Requests banknote to cross at grade listed on holder.
ANY – Requests banknote to cross at any numerical grade (01-70).
OTHER GRADE – If you would like to specify a different grade than listed on the holder, write your minimum acceptable numerical grade.
Note the following limitation applies: First Print or any equivalent will not be recognized.
Banknotes that are currently encapsulated by other grading services may have issues that are not discovered until the banknotes are removed from their current holders. Therefore, PCGS Banknote cannot guarantee that a submitted banknote presently encapsulated by another service will not, upon removal from its holder, downgrade due to problems not seen on the note prior to its decapsulation. By submitting a banknote to the crossover service, the submitter agrees that PCGS Banknote is not liable in an event that a banknote is removed from its current holder and receives a lower grade than the grade most previously granted by another grading service.
This is the re-encapsulation of PCGS Gold Shield Grading or PCGS Banknote certified banknote. Any banknotes submitted under the reholder service will not be regraded.
