The NGC Green Label

Distinguishing the hobby’s most appealing coins.

A Morgan Dollar with cartwheel luster, a Peace Dollar with a sharp strike, a Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle with exquisite color — only quality coins, as determined by major numismatic market makers, are eligible for the NGC Green Label. They are the coins collectors want, with exceptional eye appeal and other desirable traits.
