NGC to Attribute Shanghai and Shenyang 2016 Monkey Bi-Metallic ¥10 Coins

Posted on 1/28/2016

Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) will attribute the mint of origin on the NGC certification label, if requested, for 2016 Monkey Bi-Metallic ¥10 coins that are received by NGC in the sealed Mint box.

These popular coins are struck at the Shanghai and Shenyang Mints. The mints seal five rolls, each containing 50 coins, in a brown box that is then imprinted in Chinese and English with either Shanghai Mint Co., Ltd., or Shenyang Mint Co., Ltd.

2016 Monkey Bi-Metallic ¥10 coins that are received by NGC in these sealed Mint boxes will be labeled as “2016(S) STRUCK AT SHANGHAI MINT” or “2016(Y) STRUCK AT SHENYANG MINT,” as applicable, if requested by the submitter. The “S” and “Y” mintmarks will appear in parentheses on the NGC certification label to indicate that the mintmark is not present on the coins.
