NGC Announces Year of the Pig Label

Posted on 9/13/2018

Submitters can choose this label to celebrate coins featuring the next sign in the Chinese zodiac.

Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) has announced the availability of its Year of the Pig label, which continues NGC's popular Lunar Series of special labels celebrating the Chinese zodiac. The zodiac's 12-year cycle features a different animal each year; in February 2019, the Year of the Dog will come to an end, and the Year of the Pig will begin.

NGC's Year of the Pig Label

China is well-known for minting zodiac-themed coins, and other countries do so as well. Cook Islands is already issuing commemorative coins for the Year of the Pig.

The Year of the Pig labels are available for all Year of the Pig coins for a $5 fee per coin (no additional charge for bulk submissions). Customers who want this label should write in bold letters on their submission form: “Year of the Pig Label 1034” (or “Year of the Pig Label 1045” for coins requiring Oversize Holders).

All submissions in China must be made to an Official Submission Center. For a list of Official Submission Centers in China, click here. Paid NGC Collector members and NGC Authorized Dealers may submit directly to NGC in Hong Kong, China and the United States. Not a member? Join today!
