Amazing that PCGS is grading silver rounds now! I'm a big fan of the great expansion!

Here's the press release:

I have a few featuring some of my favorite super heroes that would be great to slab!

    I thought those were going to be those goofy slabs mentioned in another thread...

    Very nice, The only Disney stuff I have are some bill I bought every time my daughter went to Disneyland. I gave her $200 and ask her to pick me up some bills. I bought her a yearly pass to do that for me so I have about $2k of funny money. Till one day they told her they are not selling or trading it any more. My wife called me nuts for doing it. Lol



    Hoard the keys.

    Maybe not so nuts. It appears that 'Disney Dollars' are worth more than face value, and that PCGS grades them.

    Although I am not a big collector of silver rounds - I do have a few that were of special interest to me (not Disney). I will consider having them slabbed... not really necessary, but an interesting idea to muse upon. Cheers, RickO

    Other TPGs do exist and have slabbed these earlier, but none of them have the combination of TrueViews, TrueViews on Cert Verification and CoinFacts. If they did, there may be less of a reason to go to PCGS, but as it is, PCGS has a number of advantages over other TPGs.

    For example, I have a growing number of coins with PhotoVision (as seen on Heritage listings) but ATS won't release the blue background photos to me or put them on Cert Verification. Other TPGs are making progress, but still have a long way to go.

    To each our own.
    Disney's are not for me.
    I respect the collecting addiction with those who do.
    Most of us collect more than just coins. :)

    Disney coins are kinda cool. I have a 2000 Millenium coin that I picked up at WDW on vacation back at the turn of the century. No idea where it is right now, so no pics.

    Makes sense they would grade them but I have no interest in silver rounds. The funny thing is why grade them by the 70 point scale? Why not use this as an opportunity to introduce a scale that makes sense for bullion and rounds?

    It's pretty amazing that round is 34 years old which is older than many YNs!

    Just means even longer waits for “real” coins - I wish they wouldn’t even grade bullion coins never mind non-numismatic stuff ...
    already takes too long

    It’s like PCGS is borrowing from ICG’s playbook. My question: Are there any market recognized/published grading standards accepted by collectors of medals or are we just shooting from the hip on these?

    There's a good forum for your question here:

    Maybe some one should start a stickering company for these too.

    Disney elongated cents are quite popular among some collectors. I did find a Houston Zoo Tiger elongated cent in a Coinstar reject bin a couple months ago. I do know that a few of us have the @lordmarcovan elongated coins in our private collecton, me included.🤓 Maybe a TPG will offer their services for elongated coins someday.

    ATS has been doing enlongates for a while now. Hopefully PCGS will too!

    Do you consider people in their mid 30s as YN? I always assumed that most went with 18.

    I’m just being conservative as I’ve never seen an official cut off.

    If it is 18 and that is used as the cut off for moderns, even SBAs would be classics!

    Interesting. Do these require a special holder or gasket? Does anyone have any pictures? I’ve never seen one of these.

    I believe it is a normal sized holder (the gasket might be different).
    Here is one among many on eBay:
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/255110225782?hash=item3b65c11f76:g:6X8AAOSw2khhKC-p

    I am amazed at the high values of the ATS slabbed elongated coins. The APMEX eBay store has an MS631892 Barber Dime for the 1893 Columbian Exposition for $401.06 BIN. Link to follow. I have to change device.

    A BIN price isn’t an actual sales price and may or may not reflect reality of fair market value. I know in the past APMEX has had very optimistic pricing with some esoteric PL coins.

    Here's another one with Mickey.

    Anyone know if PCGS is slabbing any other rounds, like Peanuts ones?

    As I like a lot of bullion round designs and I'll bet there are literally 1000's of them out there, I just don't understand why someone would want to have one graded. They are basically only worth the silver content, no monetary value and after grading fees, is it really feasible?

    If it is round (or square or triangular, etc.) and does not move, it will be graded for the right price.
