Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) has announced that they have created a special presentation label for coins featured in the book 100 Greatest U.S. Modern Coins.
This newly released book ranks the most important U.S. coins issued from 1964 to date. The attractive black and tan NGC label boldly shows a coin’s rank adjacent to standard NGC certification information including description and grade.
100 Greatest U.S. Modern Coins is the eighth entry in Whitman Publishing’s award-winning 100 Greatest® library. This new work, authored by Scott Schechter and Jeff Garrett, explores the most fascinating, rarest, most popular, and most valuable Mint products of recent generations.
A detailed history describes each coin included in the book along with an enlarged color photograph, certified population and valuation information. NGC’s special certification label should appeal to collectors seeking to build a certified collection of coins included in the book.
"The 100 Greatest were selected and ranked by the authors with input from leading coin dealers, researchers, and collectors, and a survey of current journals and periodicals," said Whitman publisher Dennis Tucker.
While modern U.S. coinage has become one of the hottest segments of the coin market over the past ten years, comparatively few books recount the intriguing stories of these coins.
"One of the goals of 100 Greatest U.S. Modern Coins was to celebrate properly these coins which are of true and lasting significance. NGC’s special label similarly honors the coveted role of these coins," comments co-author and Certified Collectibles Group vice president, Scott Schechter.
100 Greatest U.S. Modern Coins is currently available for purchase on Whitman’s website, elsewhere online and at book stores nationwide.
There are two ways to have coins featured in the book encapsulated in NGC’s special label:
Raw (uncertified) coins may be submitted for grading using NGC’s Modern Special or higher tier service with the instruction 100 GREATEST LABEL written prominently on the submission form. No per invoice submission minimums apply, but coins to be encapsulated with this label MUST be submitted on their own submission form separate from coins receiving other labels.
Coins already encapsulated by NGC may be submitted for Designation Review service with the instruction 100 GREATEST LABEL. Again, coins to be encapsulated with this label MUST be submitted on their own submission form separate from coins receiving other labels.
Please make sure coins to receive this label appear on their own submission form as mixed label submission for this special label cannot be honored. All submitters must have an active submission account, such as a NGC Collectors Society account.
Questions regarding the special label and submitting coins to NGC should be directed to NGC customer service at service@NGCcoin.com or 1-800-NGC-COIN (642-2646).
