Today, April 17, Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) announced the limited availability of a special edition Red Book.

Whitman's NGC 30th Anniversary Official Red Book

Whitman’s NGC 30th Anniversary Official Red Book® (front and back covers)

Founded in 1987, grading services company NGC celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. Whitman’s Official Red Book® has been published since 1946 and celebrates its 71st edition.

Limited to 2,017 copies, NGC 30th Anniversary Official Red Books show NGC’s 30th Anniversary logo on the front and back covers and note the "NGC 30" edition on its spine.

As part of an NGC promotion, this special edition will be given for free on a first-come, first-served basis to qualifying submitters. NGC submission instructions and restrictions include:

  • NGC will make 1,917 NGC 30th Anniversary Official Red Books available for this promotion.
  • NGC will make 1,917 NGC 30th Anniversary Official Red Books available for this promotion.
  • The NGC 30th Anniversary Official Red Book promotion is open to NGC Collector members and NGC Authorized Dealers with shipping addresses in the United States.
  • NGC Collector members and NGC Authorized Dealers who submit five (5) or more US coins, tokens or medals to NGC before May 31, 2017, under any non-bulk grading tier(s) (Modern, Economy, Early Bird, Express or WalkThrough) will receive a copy of the NGC 30th Anniversary Official Red Book WHILE SUPPLIES LAST. Coins may be submitted under multiple grading tiers, but all five (5) coins must arrive at NGC’s Sarasota, Florida, office before May 31, 2017, all in the same package.

Does anyone still refer to the pricing in these guides? Seems like the Gray Sheet is much more relevant..

Hi,
Go to eBay.
Search for items sold for any coin you want to price (NOT the asking prices). It is a check box in the advanced search link. This will give you the eBay current price that people have paid.

It seems like these new Red Book special editions are only available to certain people. The same thing happened with the PCGS 30th Anniversary medals. They’re now on eBay at $125+. Will this Red Book do the same? I don’t think so, but it is a cool promotion. NGC should provide a larger grading voucher for people who don’t get the book, because special books like this are worth at least $50.
