THE NGC AirView Holder

A revolutionary encapsulation option that combines outstanding aesthetics and ultimate protection.

The patent pending NGC AirView Holder is a first of its kind in the coin certification industry. Designed specifically for small, fragile and oddly shaped coins, it is the best way to preserve and display coins that previously could not benefit from the protection of NGC encapsulation.

Innovative Design

The NGC AirView Holder is the result of more than four years of research and development by experts in numismatics, materials science, engineering and design. It works by securely suspending a coin between two layers of high-quality polymers that are both crystal clear and fully inert.

Revolutionary Construction

The suspended coin in its protective encasement is then ultrasonically welded inside the same NGC core and state-of-the-art holder used for other coins certified by NGC, including the rarest ones in the Smithsonian Institute's collection. By design and construction, coins encapsulated in an NGC AirView Holder are the same thickness as other NGC-certified coins and can fit in a standard NGC display box.

Cutting Edge Security

As with all NGC holders, the NGC AirView Holder includes a certification label with the coin's description, NGC grade and unique NGC certification number. UV inks, microprinting, a high-security hologram and other security features prevent tampering and counterfeiting. After encapsulation, every coin is imaged, and these images are made available for free at
