CAC is an independent numismatic coin authentication service and is not connected or affiliated with any other numismatic coin encapsulating and/or grading service.
What Separates the Grade from Premium Quality
In every field, there are a select few that represent the best of the best. Coins are no exception. Now there's an easy way to identify premium quality coins within any particular grade. Just look for the CAC verification sticker.
Third-party grading services have revolutionized our industry by evaluating the condition of coins. Evaluations, however, can be subjective and over time, coins of varying quality have received the same grade. That's why leading members of the numismatic community formed CAC - to identify and formalize the existence of premium quality coins.
We only consider previously graded coins, submitted by CAC Submission Centers, and will only award our sticker to those coins that meet our standards for premium quality.
