Certified Gold American Eagles are those graded by the PCGS or NGC. When either of these grading houses receives the coin, the specimen is judged by the condition of its mint luster, the strike, and the presence of any possible detracting flaws on the rest of the surface areas. Coins are then assigned a numeric grade from 1 to 70.
The Sheldon numeric scale is the official grading chart for certified coins. A 1 represents a coin with severe damage and wear that is similar to a cull coin in actual value. A 70 represents a perfect coin with no flaws of any kind present. Once graded, the coins are sealed inside of protective plastic slabs.
