(Bangkok, Thailand) -- Representatives of Professional Coin Grading Service (http://www.PCGSasia.com), the world's leader in the authentication and grading of vintage and modern coins, will meet in Bangkok with members of the Numismatic Association of Thailand (NAT) on 29 and 30 November 2014. The NAT meetings coincide with the largest rare coin auction ever held in Thailand.
PCGS officials will make a special presentation about PCGS products and services.
"PCGS is honored to be invited by the Numismatic Association of Thailand and PCGS Authorized Dealer and respected auctioneer Mr. Vitoon Eurtivong, President of Eur-Seree Collecting Co. Ltd. in Bangkok, to make our presentation during the NAT meetings on Saturday afternoon, 29 November," said Ms. Muriel Eymery, PCGS Vice President of International Development.
The meetings will be held at the Narai hotel in Bangkok from 2 pm to 5 pm, and the PCGS presentation will begin at 4 pm.
"The Thai numismatic market is historically important for both vintage and modern coins. I look forward to finally meeting Thai collectors and dealers and to answer questions about PCGS grading standards. In addition to explaining how PCGS certification brings maximum value, maximum liquidity and maximum security to their coins, this will be a perfect venue to showcase the fun and many benefits of the PCGS Set Registry," Ms. Eymery added.
Mr. Kriengkrai Hirunpunthip, President of the Numismatic Association of Thailand, said the PCGS presentation will provide answers to collectors who have questions about coin grading and PCGS grading standards. "We believe collectors will become more interested in collecting 'slabbed' (certified) coins in the future," he predicted.
