NGC Label/Pedigree for March of Dimes Special Silver Set

Posted on 4/22/2015

The March of Dimes Special Silver Set, which includes two new Roosevelt Dimes and a Proof March of Dimes commemorative dollar, goes on sale May 4. Learn about NGC’s special label and pedigree for these coins. Special submission instructions must be followed.

The US Mint will begin sales of the eagerly awaited March of Dimes Special Silver Set on May 4. It includes the first-ever Reverse Proof Roosevelt Dime, a Proof 2015 Roosevelt Dime from the West Point Mint and a Proof 2015 March of Dimes Dollar, also from the West Point Mint. Only 75,000 sets will be sold and, as a result, these two new Roosevelt Dimes will have the lowest mintage in the entire series.

To mark the release of this low mintage set, NGC has created a special label that features a portrait of Franklin D. Roosevelt, the 32nd President of the United States, along with his famous quote: “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” Coins from the March of Dimes Special Silver Set will be encapsulated with NGC’s new Roosevelt label and a MARCH OF DIMES SET pedigree.

To receive this special label and MARCH OF DIMES SET pedigree, special submission instructions must be followed.

Submission Instructions:

  • Coins must remain in the sealed US Mint shipping boxes, and the entire unopened package must be sent to NGC for certification. NGC must open these boxes in order for the coins to qualify for the MARCH OF DIMES SET pedigree.

  • Select the Modern tier or higher and select Special Label/Releases. Check the NGC website for Early Releases/First Releases cutoff dates. Special Label/Releases must be selected for the MARCH OF DIMES SET pedigree even if Early Releases or First Releases is not desired or if coins are received after the cutoff date for those designations.

  • The default label will be NGC’s Roosevelt “We have nothing to fear” label (shown below):

  • If you would like Mint packaging returned, select “Return Mint Packaging” in section 3 of the NGC Submission Form.
