NGC Special ANA Designations for 2017-S Enhanced Uncirculated Set

NGC will offer several special designations, including FIRST DAY-ANA and DENVER ANA RELEASES, for qualifying 2017-S Enhanced Uncirculated Sets. Special submission instructions must be followed.

The US Mint has announced that it will release a limited-edition 10-coin 225th Anniversary Enhanced Uncirculated Coin Set on August 1 in conjunction with the ANA World's Fair of Money in Denver. The 2017-dated set will include five different America the Beautiful Quarters, one Native American $1 coin, one Kennedy half dollar, one Roosevelt dime, one Jefferson nickel and one Lincoln cent. Each coin will feature an "S" mint mark signifying that they were struck at the San Francisco Mint.

A maximum of just 225,000 sets will be sold, a number chosen to mark the US Mint's 225th Anniversary this year.

To celebrate the release of this set at the ANA show, NGC will offer a special DENVER ANA RELEASES designation for coins purchased at the ANA World's Fair of Money and submitted to NGC at the same show. Coins purchased and submitted on the first day of sales (August 1) will be eligible for the prestigious FIRST DAY-ANA designation. Coins with these special designations will be listed separately in the NGC Census.

In addition, submitters may request NGC's officially licensed ANA logo certification label.
