Certificates of authenticity are not important to most ancient coin collectors. Unfortunately, fraudulent fake
sellers will often strongly emphasizes their certificates of authenticity as proof of authenticity. Experienced collectors also know that a genuine coin is itself the most important evidence of authenticity. When it comes
time to sell, dealers don't usually ask for certificates of authenticity and the ex-Forum provenance
tag are just as good
So, why would anyone want a certificate of authenticity? We hope
that for some collectors our Forum
certificates of authenticity will enhance the pleasure of owning the coins. Our certificates include photos of the coin and all the information, the description, historical background, etc., that is on the website about the coin. We believe that many collectors will enjoy having this information at hand, printed on paper. Also, certificates are very popular for presentation along with coins given as gifts.
Our certificates are printed on plain paper and are not laminated.
