Each collectible certified by PMG will be assigned its own unique QR code located on the back of the label. This new addition to the PMG labels will help provide quick access to important information, greater transparency and increased security and integrity throughout the numismatic market. Anyone will be able to scan the QR code with their smartphone or tablet and directly link to the Verify PMG Certification tool with the note’s description, grade and an image of the note.
