New PCGS Digital Coin Album Lets You Proudly Display Your Sets Anytime, Anywhere
Now you can see and even show your PCGS Set Registry® coins handsomely displayed in a customized album anytime, 24 hours a day, even if your prized coins are stored in a far-away bank vault or elsewhere.
Professional Coin Grading Service (www.PCGS.com) has created the PCGS Digital Coin Album, a way for collectors to display and share their coin sets online in a beautiful format resembling a traditional coin album. The new feature is free and easy to use.
“The PCGS Set Registry would not be possible without internet technology, and now we’ve used technology to take what we feel is the next giant step for PCGS Set Registry efficiency, fun, and enjoyment,” said BJ Searls, PCGS Set Registry and Special Projects Director.
“We’ve developed a way for you to create an elegant coin album which you can enjoy yourself or share with your friends anytime. You simply login to My Set Registry, visit one of your sets, and build the album with the images you have added to your set,” explained Searls.
You can choose from one of six different color palettes for each album and you can add your own set description to the cover. Once you “publish” your album online, it is linked from your set in the Registry and can be downloaded and printed as a PDF file. You can admire it anytime, anywhere online, and you can share it with other collectors on the PCGS Set Registry website and through other social media.
Searls and PCGS Co-Founder David Hall will present a brief seminar about the new PCGS Digital Coin Album feature at 2 pm on Friday, January 30, 2015, at the upcoming Long Beach Coin, Currency, Stamp & Sports Collectible Expo (www.LongBeachExpo.com).
“This new digital approach combines the way we all used to collect with albums to house and display our coins with the technology of today. This dramatically changes the way you can enjoy and display your sets. In fact, your kids might even like it!,” said Searls.
The PCGS Set Registry (www.pcgs.com/setregistry) was established in 2001 and now hosts nearly 73,000 sets. For additional information about PCGS and its services and the new PCGS Digital Coin Album, visit www.PCGS.com or call PCGS Customer Service at (800) 447-8848.

Dallas Rare Coin and Paper Money Show Ready
(Dallas, Texas) — Leaders of the Professional Numismatists Guild (www.PNGdealers.com) say many of the 50 dealers participating in the upcoming PNG Dallas Rare Coin & Paper Money Show, February 26 – 28, 2015, will be offering free, informal appraisals of the public’s old coins and currency.
The three-day show will be in Hall C of the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center that is located at 1501 Gaylord Trail in the Dallas suburb of Grapevine, Texas.
“The Dallas show will be an opportunity for the public to learn the value of coins or currency they may have inherited. They can find out what it is and what it is worth. And collectors in the Southwest can meet and do business with many PNG member-dealers from around the country who usually do not attend the local Dallas area coin shows,” said PNG President Terry Hanlon, President of Dillon Gage Precious Metals in Addison, Texas.
Dallas-based Heritage Auctions will conduct an auction of U.S. rare coins in conjunction with the show.
Admission is $10 for a three-day pass, however, free admission coupons are available online at www.pngdealers.org/images/COUPON.dls.pdf.
Public hours will be Thursday, February 26, from 10 am to 6 pm; Friday, February 27, from 9 am to 6 pm; and Saturday, February 28, from 9 am to 5 pm. For additional information, contact the Professional Numismatists Guild by phone at (951) 587-8300 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Royal Australian Mint has surprised collectors by letting loose all 2015 dated circulation coins in the first month of the year. Now collectors aren’t left guessing about which and what coins we’ll see in our change.
