PMG Grading On-site in Hong Kong in August 2019

Posted on 6/21/2019

PMG will conduct on-site authentication, grading and encapsulation of paper money in Hong Kong, China this summer. Request "August On-site Grading" on the PMG Hong Kong Submission Form. All submissions must be made by Friday, August 9, to be eligible.

Paper Money Guaranty® (PMG®) is now accepting submissions for on-site authentication, grading and encapsulation of paper money in Hong Kong, China. The event will be held from August 12-24, 2019, at the offices of NGC Hong Kong Ltd., its Hong Kong affiliate.

Both vintage and modern notes from virtually every country will be accepted for this event. As an added benefit to its submitters, PMG will not charge any additional fees for the on-site grading. Please refer to the PMG Hong Kong Services and Fees chart for grading fees.

The special event coincides with two major numismatic shows in Hong Kong: the Hong Kong International Coin Convention & Antique Watch Fair (HICC), held August 22-24 at the Holiday Inn Golden Mile, and the Hong Kong Coin Show (HKCS), held August 23-25 at the Mira Hotel.

All submissions for PMG on-site grading should be made to NGC Hong Kong, Ltd., by Friday, August 9. Due to the anticipated high demand for the August event, PMG expects to cut off submissions early. Submitters are encouraged to submit as early as possible. PMG will update this article when it has cut off on-site grading submissions, and all submissions after that date (including for previously scheduled appointments) will only be accepted for PMG expedited grading (until Sunday, August 25).

If your notes cannot be done on-site, you will be notified by PMG's Hong Kong office and your notes will be shipped to PMG's headquarters in Sarasota, Florida, USA, for an expedited turnaround.

If you would like your notes to be included in the on-site grading event, you must write "August On-site Grading" on the PMG Hong Kong Submission Form. If you would prefer that your notes be graded by PMG in the US, you can request "August Expedited Grading Special" on the PMG Hong Kong Submission Form to have them shipped to PMG in the US for the expedited turnaround. For submissions that cannot be done on-site, the estimated turnaround time is three weeks (not including shipping time).


  • The maximum number of notes per submission form is 50 for non-bulk grading tiers and 100 for bulk grading tiers. Use additional submission forms for larger quantities.
  • The turnaround time is approximate and not guaranteed. Submissions will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis and, in the event of extremely high demand, later submissions may require a longer turnaround time.

PMG Collectors members (Associate and higher) and PMG Authorized Dealers can make an appointment to submit at PMG's Hong Kong office. Not a member? Learn how to join here.

Founded in 2005, PMG is a leading third-party paper money grading service with more than 4,000,000 notes certified. Every note that PMG certifies is backed by its comprehensive guarantee of grade and authenticity. The PMG Guarantee, combined with the accuracy, consistency and integrity of the PMG grading team, results in higher prices realized and greater liquidity for PMG-certified notes.

PMG will endeavor to complete all submissions at the earliest possible date. Turnaround times depend on the volume and type of submissions received, however, and PMG therefore cannot guarantee the turnaround time.
