PMG will conduct on-site authentication, grading and encapsulation of paper money in Hong Kong for the second time. Request “On-site Grading” on the PMG Hong Kong Submission Form.


Paper Money Guaranty® (PMG®) is now accepting submissions for on-site authentication, grading and encapsulation of paper money in Hong Kong. The event will be held from June 13-28, 2018, at the offices of NGC Hong Kong Ltd., its Hong Kong affiliate.

There was strong demand earlier this year when PMG, the world’s largest third-party paper money grading service, offered on-site grading in Hong Kong for the first time.

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.

No submissions will be accepted after June 25 for this on-site grading event and it is possible that PMG will have to cut off on-site submissions earlier due to high demand. On-site grading submissions will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis. This announcement will be updated once PMG determines that it can no longer accept on-site grading submissions, so please check back often.

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 “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 “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).

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 the world’s leading and largest third-party paper money grading service with more than 2,500,000 notes certified, more than half of them from China. 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.
