NGC's PHOTO PROOF service utilizes the latest technology in digital coin imaging to capture your NGC-certified coins in precise, full-color, enlarged images. You'll receive a laminated 8.5" x 11" bifold presentation piece that includes an entertaining and informative chronicle of your coin's background, prepared by NGC's Director of Research.

Each PHOTO PROOF includes full-color, enlarged images* of the obverse and reverse, label information and a detailed analysis of strike, luster, toning and rarity. Pedigree and variety information may also be included, as well as a personalization of your choosing.

NGC's PHOTO PROOF is a great way to share and catalog your collection. Duplicates and digital delivery are available for a small fee.

* The coin is enlarged as much as six times its actual size (depending on the type of coin).
