Collector Memberships – Closed

CAC is not accepting new Dealer or Collector Memberships at this time.

John Albanese, founder and president of the company explains: “We don’t want to get completely overwhelmed. We’ve kept our prices friendly and our turnaround times favorable, and we want things to stay that way. Capping our membership for at least the rest of the year will give us a chance to consolidate our growth and assess where we’re headed in the future.”

When membership is re-opened, we will post a notice on the site.

However you can email us and request an application…and be placed on a waiting list.

Once Membership is re-opened, we will contact you for any additional information.

Advanced Collector/Submitter Memberships

The Certified Acceptance Corp. (CAC) is now accepting membership applications from collectors. Those who meet certain requirements will be eligible to submit certified coins directly to the company for evaluation.

The change reflects growing awareness throughout the hobby of CAC’s role in the marketplace, and is intended to simplify the submission process and make it as easy as possible for collectors to submit their coins .

  • After acceptance, you must sign the Advanced Collector/Submitter Agreement stating that you understand the company’s submission procedures and will comply with them and be bound by their terms.

Advanced Collector/Submitter Member Fee Schedule:
