NGC Registry: 2017 Annual Awards Information Plus 32 New Sets

Posted on 11/14/2017

Take a look at the new sets added to the NGC Registry.

The annual NGC Registry Awards deadline is approaching quickly. Ensure your set is at its best by 10 a.m. EST on Dec. 1 to be considered for this year's awards. Winners will be announced Jan. 5, 2018. Thank you to all of our collectors for participating and for making the NGC Registry the best and most vibrant place for you to showcase your collections.

Here is some other awards information that may interest you:

Obscured Sets:

Obscured sets will not be considered for any awards. If an owner of an obscured set wishes to compete for awards and have the rank of their set displayed, they must have changed their set from obscured to public by October 1, 2017.

Rank Tie-break Criteria:

The NGC Registry ranks sets first according to the set's score. If two or more sets have the same score, the NGC Registry will break the tie by ranking the sets based on the percentage of NGC-certified coins in the set. If two or more sets have the same score and the same percentage of NGC-certified coins, then the tie will be broken based on the percentage of coins with images. If two or more sets have the same score, same percentage of NGC-certified coins and the same percentage of coins with images, then the tie will be broken based on the percentage of coins with descriptions.

To summarize, ranking is achieved by considering the following, in order:

  1. Set score
  2. Percentage of NGC-certified coins
  3. Percentage of coins with images
  4. Percentage of coins with descriptions

If all of the above items are equal between sets, then sets will be sorted by the date the rank was achieved (first to achieve it will appear higher), but they will have the same rank number beside their set.
