core for Apollo 11 50th anniversary coin
1 1

I have an Apollo 11 50th anniversary coin that came back from NGC mounted in a solid core that really is meant for a thick coin like a piedfort or a high-relief coin.  It's an awful core to use for a domed coin, as much of the reverse side is essentially hidden because you're looking down a tube at it.  I have seen photos of other Apollo 11 coins mounted in proper cores designed for domed coins, such as this one of s/n 4955737-011 (grade=PF70).  I have a pair of Australian domed coins in the same type of core, which is a 3-piece core: the middle piece is essentially a standard Edgeview holder, sandwiched between a pair of spacers with large square cutouts around the coin.

I'd like to have my Apollo 11 coin reholdered using that core.  Is there a part number for that core which I could reference on the submission form, or what would otherwise be the best way to do so?  I'd also like it mounted with the reverse side (the reflection in the astronaut's helmet) facing up.

The chinese panda that you have in a blister pack will not receive  in the description. The only time we do that is for bulk submission into our Shanghai office.
 
As for the Apollo 11 coin it would be really helpful if you could provide us with the cert number so that we can see what core it was put in. Then we can let you know if that is the only core available for the specific coin that he has.

You can send it in for reholder. On the paperwork you need to write "PRONG CORE" so that we know to put it in that core instead.
Thank you,
