These designs are shared across the BU and Proof versions of the medal in both silver and gold.

A PF70 certification from the NGC indicates that a medal possesses full, original mint luster and comes with no detracting flaws on the strike or field of the specimen. Additionally, the UCAM label points to the visual beauty of the proof medal.
