The Lincoln Label is now available for 2009 Bicentennial Lincoln Coins submitted using NGC grading tiers. Eligible coin types include the 2009 Lincoln Commemorative Dollar in mint state and proof and the 2009 Bicentennial Lincoln Cents in mint state (both circulation and mint set or SMS issues) and proof issues. Only these coins are eligible.

Although there are no additional service fees, strict submission guidelines must be followed to receive this label. In order to minimize processing delays, label requests made on improperly completed submissions will be encapsulated with standard NGC labels.

Tier Submission Instructions for Lincoln Label

  1. Submitters sending five or more coins for encapsulation with the Lincoln Label can use the Modern Tier. When submitting fewer than five coins, Early Bird Tier must be used.

  2. The words LINCOLN LABEL must be written prominently on the submission form. If no written request appears on the submission form, standard NGC labels will be used.

  3. Most importantly, when requesting the Lincoln Label, coins to be encapsulated with this label cannot be combined with coins requiring other labels or ineligible coins. They must be isolated on their own submission form. Mixed label requests on a single submission form will automatically receive standard NGC labels.

Coins already certified with the standard NGC label that are eligible for the Lincoln Label can be submitted to NGC using the Reholder service. Coins should be listed on a Reholder invoice as normal with the words LINCOLN LABEL written prominently on the form. The standard Reholder charge of $5 per coin applies.

The Lincoln Label is also available using NGC bulk submission when minimum submission requirements are met.

Because of the strict submission requirements for this request, please contact NGC Customer Service with any questions about preparing a submission at service@NGCcoin.com or by phone at 1-800-NGC-COIN (642-2646).
