      Try the new NGC Journals!   03/22/2017

      NGC has launched a new and improved NGC Journals! Available on NGCcoin.com, the new NGC Journals improves upon the popular platform to write blogs and discuss them with other members. The new NGC Journals has an improved design that makes it significantly easier to post and read journals from any device, including smartphones and tablets. Adding images has been made much simpler, and the NGC Journals now give users the ability to create polls and "like" other entries. A popular feature of the old NGC Journals was the ability to open an entry to comments from other users. This feature has been retained and enhanced — users can now comment on the same page as the original Journal entry, creating a seamless experience. Best of all, the same login can be used to post Journals, make comments and access the other features of the NGC website. Old NGC Journals entries will be migrated to the new NGC Journals soon. In the meantime, users can make posts to the new NGC Journals. To get started, create a Journal and make an entry. Unlike the old NGC Journals, you create a single Journal and then add new entries to it. Your Journal can be customized with a cover photo, and you can choose to make it available to all users or only to the users that you select. You can also choose to receive notifications whenever people comment on one of your entries. Scroll below for helpful tips on using the new NGC Journals or go to the new NGC Journals now >   Instructions / Tips To get started, you must first create your Journal and then you can add entries to that Journal. Choose Journals from the Browse menu if you are not already on the Journals page

        Click Create a Journal

        Name your journal, add a description, add a photo, and choose if you want all users to see your journal or if you would like it available to a specific audience only. Click Continue to move on to the next step where you can add you first entry!

Complete Silver Eagles Competitive set?

Entry posted by freerider41042 · - 183 views

Obviously, NGC doesn't have an all inclusive Silver Eagles competitive set available.  According to Maribeth Bouche of NGC, "Hello, Thank you for the feedback.  The 2013 SP Enhanced finish is a special strike and was inadvertently allowed in the MS ad Proof sets."

This coin doesn't rate for the Silver Eagles, 1986-Date, Mint State and Proof (Incl. Varieties) competitive set but is good enough for the Silver Eagles, 1986-Date, Bullion Issues competitive set.                                                                   

This doesn't make any sense.  The are only 281K of this coin available and the reverse proof is part of the complete set but the enhanced finish isn't?  A (P), (S), (W) implied mint mark is a variety but the enhanced finish isn't?  Hey, everybody, you're 2013W SP coin only rates as common bullion by NGC.  Ok, then.  I don't argue with experts.  NGC has perverted numismatics with their varieties.  Watch out, next thing you know, it will be the individual labels you have to collect as these are "varieties".    

  I'm not going to play this game with them anymore.  I've spent too much time and money building a 100% complete set for the issuing company (NGC) not allow recognition.  I'm not renewing my membership and stop my upgrading process.  I'll be selling my entire NGC collection is anyone is interested (serious offers only)  I'm getting away from them.

Thank you for the feedback.

Any set labeled "Mint State and Proof" (with or without varieties,) refers to the strike of the coin. As such, only Mint State or Proof struck coins are eligible. "Specimen" coins are neither Mint State nor Proof. This is why the 2103 SP coin is not eligible for a "Mint State and Proof" Set.  The only Silver Eagle set that is not titled either MS or Proof is this set:

US Sets breadcrumbsArrow.gif American Eagles & Bullion Coins breadcrumbsArrow.gif 

Silver Eagles, 1986-Date, Bullion Issues

Hence, the SPECIMEN coin is eligible there. Varieties are not in question with the 2013 SP; it is the strike, the method of manufacture, that is different. I hope this helps. If you have any questions, you may reach us at registry@ngccoin.com. Thank you.

I still think you're insufficiently_thoughtful_persons.  The coin was released as part of a special mint set from the US Government .  I'm done.  I'm removing my set and cancelling after I post this.

All sets and coins removed.  How do I delete my profile?  I want nothing more to do with your company.  You took a lifelong hobby and destroyed it for me today.  Be proud of yourself.

Just picked up a MS 69  2015 [P] and the points are relatively low . Before I enter this coin in my registery I may try to sell it for a profit. that money plus what I have saved will afford me the opportunity to purchase a 1995 W  That coin I'll enter, see were I stand then close out. D.D.

Silver Eagles, 1986-Date, Mint State

Silver Eagles, 1986-Date, Mint State, Including Varieties

Silver Eagles, 1986-Date, Mint State, Specimen, and Proof 

Silver Eagles, 1986-Date, Mint State, Specimen, and Proof, Including Varieties
