Dickson Niew Currency Grading Services

Several friends have asked me to make an article about where they can get coin grading services in Malaysia. They're few Malaysia coin dealers who are offering coin grading service in Malaysia but I am not talking about "grading service" by the dealer himself. It is just a waste of money if you're paying for that kind of services because not everyone in this world recognize the dealer who give such service. There is also a conflict of interest since the seller himself is selling their item to you. Their grading for the item might be higher from the correct grading just to make sure the item price will be higher or customer can easily be cheated by their "higher grade item".

I am talking about professionally graded (certified) and encapsulated (slabbed) coin grading services by a Third Party Grading service such as Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) and Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) for coins or Paper Money Guaranty (PMG) for banknotes.

Grading Services

One of the dealers who is offering a coin grading services to coin collector using third party grading service company is Dickson Niew Collection corner. He charge RM170 per item including insurance for your item and the price might be cheaper depends on the consignment price. Coins will be graded by PCGS or NGC according to your preferred choice and banknotes will be graded by PMG. All form particulars will be fill by him and you just need to tell him what you want or your target for your coin /banknote grading.

He only accepts coins, banknotes, tokens and coupons (Currency or Numismatic related items). Counterfeit coins or Fake banknotes will be rejected. He will also give you free advice whether you should send your items for Third Party Grading Services or it will be a waste of money to grade your item.

You've to wait two to four months to get your coins back from the grading service. Payment must be made ​​before you are allowed to take your coins/banknotes.
