NGC has launched the NGC Coin Encyclopedia, a new online resource. Currently, over 200 different coin types are included. Each is described with an entertaining and informative historical summary, detailing its background and occasion for issuance. Content was developed by the NGC Research Department and its Director, David W. Lange.

In the NGC Coin Encyclopedia, every coin is illustrated with examples chosen from the Photo Proof™ image archive. Photo Proof™ is NGC’s premier coin imaging service. Many coins are also accompanied by a comprehensive gallery of images from the NGC Registry. These user-supplied images allow viewers to quickly examine a broad array of different grades and dates for each US coin type.

A searchable bibliography has also been incorporated into the Encyclopedia for collectors who wish to continue to expand their learning. Future editions and updates are planned.
