For the third consecutive year, the NGC Ancients column was recognized for excellence in the category for ancient and world coins (up to AD 1500). Meanwhile, NGC Research Director David W.

The NLG also honored NGC for its Chinese Coins column in the category for world coins (1500 to date).

"We are honored that the NLG has again recognized our efforts to promote and educate the hobby," said Mark Salzberg, NGC Chairman and Grading Finalizer. "Sharing our expertise and engaging with collectors across the globe has long been a priority for NGC."

The NLG was founded in 1968 as an organization for numismatic writers, editors and content creators. The NLG awards are traditionally presented at the World's Fair of Money, the most important numismatic show every summer. Because the show was canceled this year due to the coronavirus, the awards were announced in an online video.
