NGC March Baltimore Show Releases

Posted on 3/16/2016

NGC will offer a special BALTIMORE SHOW RELEASES designation for qualifying coins.

The US Mint is expected to offer several issues for sale at the Baltimore Expo, including 2016-W Proof Gold Buffalo $50 coins and 2016-S 13-Coin Clad Proof Sets. To commemorate the release of these coins, NGC will offer its popular BALTIMORE SHOW RELEASES designation for eligible coins purchased at the US Mint booth at the Baltimore Expo and submitted to NGC at that show. The original US Mint purchase receipt is required to receive this designation. Coins with the Baltimore Show Releases designation will receive a separate listing in the online NGC Census.

The FIRST DAY OF ISSUE designation will also be available for select coins that qualify. Coins received within the first 30 days of release may alternatively receive NGC's EARLY RELEASES® or FIRST RELEASES® designations. The First Day of Issue, Early Releases and First Releases designations each receive separate listings in the online NGC Census.
