The Numismatic Guaranty Corporation is one of the two certification services in the world held in the highest regard. When the certifiers at the NGC review a coins condition and issue it a grade, that mark instills instant value on a product. The NGC, together with the Professional Coin Grading Service, uses the Sheldon numeric scale to grade coins.
Each coin graded by the NGC is issued a number from 1 to 70, with the latter being the highest possible grade a coin can receive. Once coins have been graded, the NGC seals them in protective plastic slabs and places presentation packaging inside the slab to display the year of minting, product, face value, striking mint, grade, and condition of the coin for all to see.
The 2003-W ½ oz Proof Gold American Eagle coins available now on Silver.com feature PF70 grades. A coin in this condition has its original mint luster, and no sign of contact marks, blemishes, spotted surfaces, or hairlines. The term ultra-cameo refers to the strong, frosted finish of the design set and the deeply-mirrored, clear background field.
On the obverse of all Gold American Eagles is Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ image of Lady Liberty, first featured on the $20 Gold Double Eagle from 1907 to 1933. The reverse bears Miley Busiek’s depiction of a bald eagle family, which is exclusive to coins in this series.
