Our team of unbiased numismatists render opinions on a coin's authenticity and grade. ANACS certifies authentic coins only. You may submit:
  • Regular issue U.S. coinage, commemoratives, and patterns
  • A wide variety of world coins: most coins from 1600 to present
  • The widest range of error and variety coins of any grading service
  • Problem coins (cleaned, corroded, damaged, repaired, etc.) are given a detail grade with the major problem listed
  • Hard Time and Civil War Tokens and So-Called Dollars
  • Ancient Coins

Note: Fees are non-refundable should the coin be determined ineligible for encapsulation for any reason.

Variety/Attribution/Error Research/Verification

Verification of varieties and other well-documented attributions. This includes VAM numbers, Overton numbers, Fivaz-Stanton varieties, Sheldon and Newcomb numbers, Cohen, Bolender, Breen, Flynn, Snow and more. Simply list the variety number to be verified in the space provided on the ANACS submission form. The ANACS graders will verify your attribution, and the variety designation, if correct, will be placed on the ANACS label. This service is an additional $9 per coin. In the event you do not know the attribution, if you request it, ANACS will research it for you. Simply write “Attribute” in the space provided on the ANACS submission form. This service is an additional $12 per coin.

Problem Coins Graded

ANACS is the first major grading service to grade cleaned, corroded, damaged, repaired, and other "problem coins". What will be printed on the label will be the coin's "detail grade" and the coin's most significant problem(s).

The "details grade" reflects the amount of remaining detail on the coin, balancing actual wear with remaining sharpness. Such coins will be encapsulated in our new ANACS holder. The ANACS guarantee does not apply to problem coins.

Attribution Service

For all 3000+ VAMs, plus certification for 95 percent of varieties from every major numismatic reference: We offer the industry's most complete, most accurate service.

Crossover Submissions Accepted

ANACS offers coin grading and authentication services on coins already encapsulated in other services’ holders at the same prices as for other submissions. Crossover submissions are inspected while in the holder and with the grade covered. In the final grading stage, the ANACS grade is compared against the minimum acceptable grade listed on your submission form. There is no additional charge for Crossover Submissions, but fees are required on all coins, even if they do not meet designated minimum grades.

Cameo and Heavy Cameo for Proof World Coins

Cameo and Deep Cameo designations will be used for Proof-60 and higher world coins. We will use the same criteria we use for U.S. proof coins.

Crypto-Themed Physical Tokens

Crypto-Themed Physical Token service evaluates the condition and wear of these tokens. Actual cryptocurrency value is neither confirmed nor guaranteed by ANACS.
