NGC American Eagle 35th Anniversary Celebratory Labels

Posted on 12/22/2020

To celebrate 2021 Gold and Silver Eagles, NGC is offering exciting special labels and designations.

Throughout 2021, Numismatic Guaranty Corporation® (NGC®) will offer a number of exciting special labels and designations to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the American Silver Eagle and the American Gold Eagle, the flagship bullion coins of the United States since 1986.

The NGC Eagle 35th Anniversary Special Label is available for free to all submitters for all 2021 American Eagles. Since the Eagles’ 10th anniversary in 1996, NGC has commemorated the coins’ milestone birthdays with an attractive label featuring an eagle silhouette projected over the anniversary year. It is a fitting label for the iconic series.

NGC is also offering an Eagle 35th Anniversary Mountain Label for bulk submissions. This bold label showcases the noble national bird against a rugged American landscape. The majestic imagery embodies the spirit of US numismatics and the American Eagle series specifically.
