First Day of Production

What is "First Day of Production"?

NGC offers the First Day of Production designation for select coins that are struck on the first day that the mint begins production of that coin. To qualify for First Day of Production, coins must be received by NGC or an NGC-approved depository accompanied by documentation from the mint that confirms that the coins were struck on the first day of that coin's production.

The First Day of Production designation is made available only to submitters of bulk quantities of qualifying coins. An advance request is required and there is generally a higher grading fee for the special designation verification and attribution.
