The Year of the Rat coin labels continue NGC's popular Lunar Series of special labels celebrating the Chinese zodiac.

The Cook Islands already has produced a five-ounce 2020 Year of the Rat coin in silver and mother of pearl and one in gold and mother of pearl. Fiji also has minted a one-ounce Year of the Rat Proof silver coin in gold gilded with pearl.

The NGC labels include an image of a rat in red ink.

The labels are available to all submitters of Year of the Rat coins or any 2020 coins for a $5-per-coin (USD) addition to their bill (there's no additional charge for bulk submissions). Customers who want this label should write in bold letters on their submission form: “Year of the Rat Label 1213” (or “Year of the Rat Label 1214” for coins requiring NGC Oversize Holders).

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!
