NGC has been named the Official Grading Service of Sixbid, a popular online auction platform for coins and paper money. The move elevates the collaboration between the two companies; NGC had previously been selected as an Approved Grading Service of Sixbid.
On Sixbid.com, auction houses from all over the world present their numismatic auctions to a broad audience. The services of Sixbid.com include not only the on-site marketing tools for auction houses but also easier search options for collectors and others interested in numismatic items.
Particularly in Europe, Sixbid is popular for researching possible future acquisitions for a personal collection and for offering them directly on the site. Sixbid, which was founded in 2001, was able to present over 1,100 auctions in 2018 to its numismatically interested audience.
NGC is a leading third-party authentication, grading and encapsulation service for collectible coins. Coins certified by NGC are backed by its comprehensive guarantee and are trusted by collectors and dealers around the world. This trust results in higher prices realized and greater liquidity.
NGC has certified more than 42 million coins since it was founded in 1987. It now has offices in London, Munich, Shanghai and Hong Kong, in addition to its global headquarters in Sarasota, Florida, USA.
