Why All Your Important Coins Should Be Certified.
According to one of the former U.S. Mint Directors, in 1998, the number of coin collectors in the United States was approximately two million. By 2001, this number had exponentially exploded to an estimated 60 million and counting. Largely as a result of innovative U.S. Mint programs, like the State Quarters and the Presidential Golden Dollars, this number has continued to swell. By late 2007, the U.S. Mint estimated the number of U.S. coin collectors to be approximately 140 million, nearly half of the entire population in America. The serious collectors among this group demand that their coins be certified.

Great Coins. Great Collector
Coin collecting used to be called “The Hobby of Kings” because primarily wealthy aristocrats pursued it. Today, it has been rechristened "The King of Hobbies" – and far from being the province of the elite, it’s a thoroughly democratic pastime enjoyed by people of all ages, social strata and income levels.
