Posted on 11/2/2005

New Award categories this year to honor outstanding Signature Sets and Collectors Journal authors! Deadline for set registration and journal entries is December 16

We’re looking for the top sets in the world—and as the most inclusive registry in the hobby NGC will see thousands of world-class sets. Make sure yours are among them, and see if your collection has what it takes!

Competitive Set Awards
Awards will be presented in the following categories:

  • The FIVE Best CLASSIC Sets: 1792-1964
  • The FIVE Best MODERN Sets: 1950 to Date (including Jefferson Nickels and Roosevelt Dimes)
  • The FIVE Best PRESENTED Sets (Sets with the best descriptive text and coin images)

Signature Set Awards
And, new this year, we will present awards in four outstanding categories:

  • The Best Overall Signature Set
  • The Best World Signature Set
  • The Most Creative Signature Set
  • The Most Informative Signature Set

Take the honors in one of these categories, and you’ll receive a personalized plaque, an icon of recognition next to your set’s registry listing, and up to 5 Deluxe PhotoProofs of NGC coins from your winning set. To participate, just enter your set online in the NGC Registry. Sets must be at least 50% complete to be eligible.

Collectors Journal Awards

Additionally, new this year, we will award three outstanding Collectors Journal Authors. We will consider an author's complete collection of journal entries in determining the winners. Journals entries will be judged on writing talent, creativity, enthusiasm, numismatic knowledge, and most importantly the sharing of a personal sense of the collecting journey. The winning authors will receive a personalized plaque and an icon of recognition on their homepages.

Also, collectors with the finest set in each category will receive an icon of recognition by his/her set in the registry and a certificate of achievement.
