What is PreScreen service?

The Pre-Screen service allows you to request that only those coins that achieve a certain grade or higher are encapsulated. For example, you may request a minimum grade of NGC MS 65, and only the coins that merit an MS 65 grade or higher will be certified.

Coins that do meet your grade requirement are not certified, and you don’t have to pay the encapsulation fee.

Note: Different coin types accept different minimum grade requests. A reject fee may apply if too few coins meet your minimum grade.

What is the coin minimum to qualify for PreScreen and bulk submissions?

A minimum submission of 100 coins of the same type is required to qualify.

For US coins, a mix of dates is acceptable, but they must all be the same denomination and type. For world coins, a maximum of five different dates are acceptable, and all coins must be the same denomination and type.

What designations and labels are available for bulk submissions?

NGC offers a variety of designations and labels that are only available for bulk submissions. Special designations recognize coins received for certification within a specified timeframe, helping to capture the popularity of a release, while special labels enhance the presentation of NGC-graded coins. For more information about labels, click here and for designations, click here.
