Why All Dealers Should Join the PNG

Founded in 1955, the Professional Numismatists Guild is all about its motto – Knowledge, Integrity, Responsibility. Every PNG member dealer exemplifies all three of these attributes, or they wouldn’t be part of our association. The PNG is universally respected by collectors, investors and numismatic dealers alike.

As a member of our prestigious organization, you are known as an expert in your field and a coin dealer that collectors and investors can trust. For dealers whose reputation for integrity is everything, a PNG membership should be a given.
