Guaranty Corporation (NGC) announced an
innovative new coin holder at this year’s ANA
World’s Fair of Money® in Baltimore.
The most significant visible improvement is
NGC’s EdgeView® design that suspends a certified
coin within prongs, much like a ring holds a
diamond. The new technology enables clear
viewing of the encased coin’s edge.
"Our newest holder satisfies NGC’s combined
objectives of exceptional visual display,
security and long-term preservation," comments
Steve Eichenbaum, CEO of NGC.
"To achieve this, we relied on technology that
quite simply did not exist when the last
generation of our holder was released in 2001.
It is without question the most extensively
tested and technologically advanced coin holder
Several of the security and preservation
features promoted for the new coin holders
A high-security label with micro printing,
UV-light responsive watermarking and holographic
Directional pressure welding seal
A second state-of-the-art hologram fused
directly onto the back of the holder, which is
"virtually impossible to reproduce"
NGC said the newest generation of holders are
"made from the same preservation-grade materials
as the holder developed by NGC to house the 200
most rare, unique and famous American coins in
the Smithsonian’s National Numismatic
The company indicated the holders will be used
for encapsulation of NGC-certified coins
beginning later this month.
