CAC vs Non CAC - A Comparison of Coin Auction Sales by GreatCollections
Compares PCGS and NGC Coins With and Without CAC Approval
CAC is a company headed by John Albanese which reviews PCGS and NGC certified coins. They add a Green or Gold sticker to those coins that meet or exceed CAC's strict grading standards. Since CAC was launched in 2007, there has been a steady increase in demand for coins of all values approved by CAC and it is a growing segment of auctions conducted by GreatCollections each week.

The Comparison: This is a random selection of coins we have sold in a similar period of time (to avoid coin market/value changes), matching the grading service, coin year/denomination and grade, with one coin CAC and the other coin non-CAC. If you refresh/reload this page, it will display new results, again, all at random from our extensive database of auction realizations.

To ask questions about CAC coins or consign CAC approved coins, please e-mail [email protected] or telephone 1-800-442-6467.
