CoinWeek IQ: World Coin Grading Shootout! 4K Video

At the American Numismatic Association’s (ANA) 2017 World’s Fair of Money, CoinWeek teamed up with Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) to produce another great CoinWeek IQ video, this one on world coin grading.

CoinWeek Editor Charles Morgan tests his world coin grading skills, along with three nationally-known world coin experts: Andy Lustig, Lance Tchor of WINGS, and James Ricks of Atlas Numismatics.

Competition Rules:

  • Three points awarded for each coin graded to NGC’s standards (PLUS grades graded down to the full point value).
  • Two points awarded for each coin graded within one point of NGC’s standards.
  • One point awarded for each coin graded within two points of NGC’s standards.
  • The competitor with the highest score after grading 20 coins wins.

NGC provided a challenging mix of gems, dogs, tough calls, mint errors, classic coins and moderns.

Our competitors give each coin their best shot, pulling in more than 150 years of numismatic experience and expertise, giving CoinWeek IQ video viewers and “over the shoulder” look at the science and art of grading.

Which coins do the experts get right? Which do they get wrong? You’re about to find out!
