Collector's Pricing Guide (CPG®) Values
What are CPG values, anyway???
CPG values are THE collector's trusted source for the price of U.S. coins U.S. currency
Numismatic professionals around the world trust CDN for the wholesale pricing of coins and currency. Collectors can benefit from our guidance as well. Collectors Price Guidance Value (CPG®) is retail-friendly pricing based directly on our published wholesale values for the same item.
Why do we need a CPG® Value?
For decades the numismatic wholesale and dealer community would buy coins based on CDN Greysheet & Greensheet values but retail pricing has been left to other vendors. Unfortunately, there has been a growing disconnect between the wholesale values we publish and the so-called "Retail" values offered by other parties which is causing a breakdown in the traditional buy-sell marketplace. In many cases publish retail prices are too high, and in others, they are too low. Neither situation is good for the marketplace.
How are CPG® Values determined?
We use a sophisticated, dynamic formula to determine the proper CPG® value based on our published wholesale values. The formula will change from time to time, based on market influences, feedback and so on. The most important aspect is that, as wholesale prices change, the CPG values will change as well. No longer will the collector be left behind!
