MyCollect.com has announced the official launch of Guess the Grade, an online interactive game where members can grade coins online and compete with other collectors.

The free game utilizes high-quality GreatPhoto images to showcase various US and World coins, with the goal for players to guess the correct grading of each coin. The grading system is based on the standards set by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS), which uses a combination of prefixes, numerical grades, and suffixes to denote the condition and value of collectible coins and get you on the leaderboard.

For MyCollect, this is more than just a new product. It’s a testament to an ongoing commitment to enhancing the numismatic experience through innovative technology.

“We believe that Guess the Grade will be a valuable tool for learning and enjoyment, fostering a new generation of collectors and enhancing the skills of established enthusiasts. We’re eager to see how this game will be embraced by the community and how it will evolve as a platform for education and entertainment in the fascinating world of coin collecting,” said Jack Fitch, director of marketing for MyCollect.

Already, over 500 collectors and dealers have participated in Guess the Grade and the leaderboard shows a diverse group of amateurs and professionals, including several Young Numismatists, also known as “YNs”. MyCollect members have already placed more than 150,000 guesses.

Joe O’Connor, owner of OCNUMIS and a 40-year veteran numismatic professional, said “Guess the Grade is both easy to play and hard to stop. You begin by testing your coin grading skills in competition with fellow collectors. Before long, you will be competing with yourself as you work to nudge your composite score just a little bit higher. And while you will certainly enjoy the friendly competition, in the process, you may realize that your grading skills have improved and become more consistent.”

MyCollect has plans to expand Guess the Grade so members can select specific coin series to focus on, as well as statistics broken down by series, coin condition and era.
