Whether you are a coin or currency collector or dealer, before you buy a coin or banknote online, it is vital to verify its authenticity. That’s where the PCGS Cert Verification mobile app comes in.

The Cert Verification App makes the confirmation process much easier and much faster. Rather than typing in the coin or banknote's certification number, simply scan the barcode (obverse) or QR code (reverse) found on the label or utilize our new Gold Shield NFC Technology to tap and scan a holder with additional security (if available).

With this app, users get access to valuable information, such as a coin’s denomination, date and mintmark, grade, mintage, holder type, PCGS Population and PCGS Price Guide value or a banknote's

Supplemental coin & banknote information may also be available, such as a high resolution images, the last auction appearance and its current presence in any PCGS Set Registry sets.


• Quick, on-the-go cert verification
• NFC Gold Shield Technology makes it easy to tap and verify recently graded coins with additional security
• Scan a coin or banknote's barcode or QR code for instant verification
• If no barcode is available (old holders) you can use the scanner's text recognition capabilities to read the cert number instead
• Access to the coin’s holder type, PCGS Population, Price Guide value and more
• Links to PCGS CoinFacts or the PCGS ValueView which provide even more valuable information

It’s important to note that verification of certification numbers on the PCGS Certification Database will not entirely eliminate the risk of buying counterfeit coins or banknotes, as there is always a slight chance counterfeiters may use counterfeit PCGS grading inserts.

To further reduce the risk of counterfeit coins or banknotes, PCGS encourages purchases from verified PCGS Authorized Dealers.

New Technology

This is great, you guys outdid yourselves here, this is really smart, had to stop for a second for a drink of good old Canadian Club, PCGS will always be the leader in the smartest technology and have the best graders in the business, but I am getting so many low grades that I have to get better in picking out my best coins, thank you guys for all that you do,

I learn more from the apps than I ever knew before.

I’ve collected off and on for decades but the whole collection of apps has given me access to more knowledge than I knew was out there. Additionally it’s helped me identify bargains and stay away from real problem coins.

Keep up the great work!!
