Is this something new? Or does anyone know what's going on with this?

That's different though because they're doing it on behalf of a nation. Like they have a contract right?
Idk it seems strange to me that NGC is grading this stuff. Does PCGS do it too?
They all do it to some extent
Weird. So like if I made my own silver round they would grade and slab it for me?
You no, but if you became a well know company then yea there’s a good chance at least one would
Dan Carr produces private medals (in ADDITION to the "coins")
TPG will grade the bullion medals that he strikes
If you get as famous as DC, then sure NGC will slab whatever you make, probably
So what exactly are the criteria to become "well known"?
That's kind of what confuses me the most.
How does NGC decide what to slab and what not to slab?
Surely there must be some sort of criteria.
It’s whatever they want really, but generally anything in a reference guide will get slabbed. There’s no checklist to it, it’s their discretion in terms of privately made things
Check out the National Park Saint-Gaudens commemoratives.
Nope. Not how that works with them.
They won't slab obscene or criminal momentos.
What BB21 and others are saying is that non-legal tender commemoratives -- private coins, so to speak -- are collected, are considered artistic, and if they have a BIG ENOUGH following, will merit consideration for being graded.
I'm just saying money talks and I they're a private for-profit company. Offer them enough money and they'll slab anything. If I paid them enough they'd create and slab a classic car. Or baseball card. Or whatever I wanted them to. Money trumps principles when it's great enough.
Beyond validation of PM content, I have no idea.
And again youre WRONG
What's wrong with grading something even if it isn't an old or modern coin ?
You have a problem with comic books....memorabilia....etc. ?
