This newly released book lists the Top 50 Most Popular Modern Coins in terms of popularity, scarcity and affordability. Each coin listed in the book includes a detailed history, images, statistics and a graph displaying its ranking on a five-point scale.
Additional information includes retail prices for uncirculated and proof coins where applicable and in two NGC grades, as well as mintage tables for the various series.
Modern U.S. coins offer collectors an opportunity to build a collection of beautiful coins on a modest budget. This book is a valuable tool for immersing yourself in this dynamic market.
“One of the goals of Top 50 Most Popular Modern Coins was to help collectors to find their path in collecting modern coins,” said co-author John Maben.
The book includes the most accurate distribution figures known for modern coins up to 2010, according to co-author Eric Jordan.
“Modern coins continue to become more popular year after year, and this book is an excellent starting point for a collector,” said Mark Salzberg, NGC chairman. “NGC’s special certification label should appeal to collectors seeking to build a certified collection of the coins included in the book.”
There are two ways to have coins that are featured in the book encapsulated in NGC’s special label:
1. Raw (uncertified) coins may be submitted for grading using NGC’s Modern Special or higher tier service with the instruction “TOP 50 MODERN” 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.
2. Coins already encapsulated by NGC may be submitted for ReHolder Special Label service for $13 per coin with the instruction “TOP 50 MODERN.” Again, coins to be encapsulated with this label must be submitted on their own submission form separate from coins receiving other labels.
Coins to receive this label must 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 an 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 (800) NGC-COIN (642-2646).
