The 9/11 1 ounce silver commemorative medal being sold to collectors by the U.S. Mint has earned its own special presentation label from Numismatic Guaranty Corp. of Sarasota, Fla.
The label features the obverse image of the medal with a U.S. flag waving in the background.
To submit raw (uncertified) September 11 National Medals for grading and encapsulation with NGC’s new special label, customers are to use NGC’s Modern or Modern Special tier service with the instruction 911 Label written prominently on the submission form.
The firm also says, “Use the Modern Special tier service for the Early Releases designation for medals received by NGC during their first 30 days of release. No per invoice submission minimums apply, but medals to be encapsulated with this label MUST be submitted on their own submission form separate from coins or medals receiving other labels.
“This label is for the national commemorative medal only. Please make sure medals to receive this label appear on their own submission form as mixed label submissions for this special label cannot be honored. All submitters must have an active submission account, such as a NGC Collectors Society account.”
Inquiries about the new label and submitting coins to NGC should be sent to NGC customer service at service@NGCcoin.com, or (800) NGC-COIN (642-2646).
