    Generally the declared value is the value upon entry to NGC not the value after grading. Sometimes the value can simply be the spot bullion value. Where a coin is already graded and returns to NGC I sometimes make the declared value higher to reflect the graded coin I am sending back.

    SHIPPING and INSURANCE update Each coin sent to NGC has a mandatory declared value. This is used in two ways. Firstly to place the coin in a tier - < $300 for value and < $2000 for modern etc... Secondly as a way of valuing the coin for transit insurance. Up to this point coins returned from NGC to me have been uninsured and sent at your risk. The risk of loss is small but it exists so I have been trying very hard to put in place some insurance cover for returning packages. As a "member" of NGC i could not arrange this cover, however since being invited by NGC to be an Authorised dealer I have been able to join the North American Collectables Association that have a subsidiary (i believe) called ship and insure that provides insurance for packages returning internationally from the USA to the UK by USPS or Fedex servces. I have chosen to standardise on Fedex as this avoids any services by Parcelforce in the UK and I will be offering insurance as a "please decline if you do not want it" option. Insurance is based on the declared value (if you do not declare it to me I will assume it for you) and is 80c per $100 of declared value. I will change my spreadsheet to log the declared value and the insurance premium. If you do not want to be insured then please tell me this as a general thing for all coins or for specific submissions or specific coins and I will mark you as opted out of insurance. Practically say a delivery has $20,000 in value and contains $10,000 of opted in value, then I will insure the delivery and pay the premium on $10,000 ONLY of the $20,000 value. If by some fateful chance the delivery is lost and a claim is made then YOUR coins that are opted out of insurance will NOT be insured and the $10,000 payout will be made to those who paid the insurance premium.

    Insurance for return shipping All coins that are currently in the process of being returned from NGC will be fully insured (at my cost). From the September grading onwards I will be logging in my spreadsheet the dollar value of each coin sent and I will be passing on the cost of the insurance which is $.80 per $100 value. Please let me know when you submit gold coin’s if you would like the value to be general market price or your specific valuation. note: if you provide a valuation that is significantly less than the NGC tier maximum value than they will adjust accordingly.

    Silver is for collecting, Golds for stacking!

    Silver is cheap now in terms of spot but it’s difficult and time consuming. I am collecting in a limited way Silver Bullion Queen’s Beasts and occasionally others as they come up. My worries are: 1. Modern Numismatic Silver is way to plentiful and subject to fashion. 2. Bullion silver is still expensive in relative terms due to the exchange rate with the US dollar. 3. Silver is highly prone to tarnishing toning and spotting and most problem Silver conditions cannot be conserved. 4. Margins on silver are generally higher than gold and silvers volatility can make it more difficult to gauge and sell at the top of the rising market. 5. Silver’s low price per transaction generally makes trading costs higher and postage costs significantly higher relative to the cost of the item.
