New Maximum Declared Value Limits on Gold Rush and Specialty Gold Grading Tiers

Posted on 11/3/2005

Effective immediately, NGC is raising the maximum declared value limits for its Gold Rush and Specialty Gold service tiers to $1,500.00 per coin.

This change will not affect the types of coins submitted or the estimated turnaround times of these services. This service change reflects the increase in coin values corresponding to strong metals prices. NGC wants to assure that coins are properly valued and insured during shipping and the grading process.

The Gold Rush tier is used to submit all dates of $5 Liberty, $10 Liberty, $20 Liberty, $10 Indian, and $20 Saint Gaudens with an declared value of less than $1,500. It is also used for $5, $10, $25, $50 U.S. gold bullion. There is a five coin minimum per submission. The estimated turnaround is five business days.

The Specialty Gold tier is used for the submission of all $1 Gold, $2.5 Gold, $3 Gold, $5 Indians, and all better-date U.S. Gold valued or $1,500 or less per coin. There is a five coin minimum per submission, and the estimated turnaround time is five business days.

These grading tiers are also available in combination with VarietyPlus attribution, Internet Imaging, and Multi-Coin Holder service options. For all coins over $1,500 in value, the Early Bird, Express or WalkThrough tiers should be used. Please contact an NGC Customer Service Representative if you have any questions.
