In this episode of the CoinWeek Podcast, we talk to Mark Stephenson, Vice President of PCGS.

We ask Mark about the state of modern coin releases one quarter into 2018, why TPG label programs have become more sophisticated in recent years, and what level of effort goes into the design of these special coin holders and special PCGS insert programs.

It’s an insightful conversation about what is happening right now in the rare and modern coin industry and shows a side of the business that collectors often don’t get to hear about.

Do you agree with Mark’s assessment of the United States Mint’s first quarter product release schedule and the quality of the coins coming out this year?

Let us know which products you’ve picked up so far this year and whether you plan on picking up coins from the Breast Cancer Commemorative Coin Program in the comments below!
