S A COIN is the largest rare coin company in South Africa. We have been in business for around 25 years. In that time we have developed the market for South African rare coins from a small sized cottage industry market to being valued at billions and billions of rands. We took South Africa's rarest coin the single 9 from a value of R600 000 in 1996 to a value and sale of R4 650 000 through S A COIN in 1998. Today the Single 9 is valued at over R75 million rand.
We introduced NGC (Numismatic Guaranty Corporation) one of the world's largest grading companies to South Africa in 1996. Through extensive marketing and education we managed to get the majority of South African rare coins graded by 2000. NGC introduced consumer protection to the South African rare coin market. This prevented rare coin dealers from overpricing rare coins. This also gave investors and collectors the ability to sell their rare coins anywhere in the world. Due to the efforts of S A COIN, South Africa has the third most certified coin market out of 196 countries worldwide.
S A COIN has continually reinvented the South African rare coin market adding more consumers to this market than all of the South African coin companies added together. We recently introduced ANACS to South Africa. ANACS is the world's oldest grading company. They are an excellent addition to the grading of South African coins and compliment NGC.
