Rolls of Presidential dollars and American Eagle silver coins are now being certified by the Professional Coin Grading Service.
The brilliant uncirculated rolls are housed in what are called CrystalVue? hard plastic tubes.
?It gives collectors a safe, effective method of protecting their coins for future generations while guaranteeing the authenticity and brilliant uncirculated grade of an entire roll,? said Ron Guth, PCGS president.
PCGS accepts Presidential dollars submitted in Mint-sealed boxes of government-wrapped rolls, and silver American Eagles in Mint boxes.
It is expected that additional coin denominations and series will be accepted in the coming weeks.
The rolls are sonically sealed with a tamper-evident PCGS hologram and a PCGS label containing a brief description of the coins inside the tube.
?The crystal clarity of the new holders allows the obverse and reverse designs, and even the edge lettering on Presidential dollars, to be easily seen. The sonically sealed tube also provides safe, long-term storage,? said Miles Standish, vice president of business development.
