Particularly note that SANGS has the backing of South African Association of Numismatic Dealers (SAAND) and all numismatic societies and associations in South Africa. SANGS is committed to operating in a transparent, ethical, efficient and reliable manner, in accordance with the principles and the code of ethics of these organisations.

In short, SA’s own numismatic grading service  is ready to compete with the well known companies like NGC and PCGS by offering the same, or higher, levels when it comes to professionalism, reliability and turnaround time.
