NGC Certified Coin Security Features

Designed for long-term preservation and protection, NGC coin holders are the hobby's most advanced. Explore the numerous security features integrated into NGC's holders, labels and processes to understand how they help protect against counterfeiting and tampering.

The Hobby's Most Advanced Coin Holder

NGC's holders use the highest quality materials and the latest technologies to deliver superior optics, preservation and security. The Smithsonian Institution and other museums around the world rely on the NGC holder to protect their most treasured numismatic rarities.

NGC Holder Security

The high-tech hologram fused directly to the back of NGC holders has a dozen different security features, including a mix of covert and overt elements. Extremely durable, the holders provide an excellent deterrent and defense against counterfeits. A finely tuned machine seals each holder using ultrasonic welding — a safe, clean and secure process — that helps to protect the coins and reveal attempts at tampering.

NGC Label Security

The NGC certification label is fully inert and features a number of security measures including a UV watermark, holographic foil and microprinting. These features are present on both standard and special NGC certification labels.

24/7 Authenticity Verification

Encapsulated coin images and certification data are available 24/7 in the Verify NGC certification tool on the NGC website and in the NGC mobile app. This important tool helps to protect consumers against counterfeit or tampered holders.
