NGC Recognizes Light Finish on America the Beautiful 5 oz. Coins

NGC will recognize and designate Light Finish on ANY America the Beautiful 5 oz. coin with this phenomenon.

Recently, NGC announced that we would designate 2010-P Grand Canyon 5 oz. Specimen coins with a slightly reflective satin finish as "Light Finish." This surface finish is notably different from the regular coarse matte finish seen on most Specimen 5 oz. issues. Read the complete article.

NGC will now recognize the Light Finish designation on ANY of the America the Beautiful Specimen 5 ounce coins with this phenomenon.

Collectors can submit their Light Finish five ounce coins under the VarietyPlus service for designation on the holder. On the submission form check the box for VarietyPlus under the Service Category and then further down on the form under “Variety” check “VarietyPlus” and write “Light Finish” in the blank area. The fee for VarietyPlus designation is the chosen tier fee plus $10.

Questions should be directed to NGC customer service at or 1-800-NGC-COIN (642-2646).
