The following is a Press Release from Numismatic Guaranty Company (NGC) announcing that it will be offering special labels and designations for the upcoming proof gold 2022 American Eagles. Those coins and sets will be released by the Mint at Noon Eastern on March 17th. NGC will offer these special labels on all of the proof gold 2022 American Eagles regardless of fractional size of the coin submitted for grading.
On March 17, 2022, the US Mint is releasing the 2022-W Proof Gold Eagles: a $5 tenth-ounce coin, a $10 quarter-ounce coin, a $25 half-ounce coin and a $50 one-ounce coin, all struck at the West Point Mint. The coins have limited mintages and will be offered individually and as a four-coin set.
Numismatic Guaranty Company™ (NGC™) is offering several attractive labels for these coins, including the NGC West Point Mint Gold Star Label and the NGC Early Releases and First Releases labels and designations.
This year’s coins continue to feature Lady Liberty facing forward with a torch and olive branch, along with numerous enhancements to more closely reflect Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ original rendering. Additionally, the one-ounce coin has anti-counterfeiting variable reeding that was introduced last year.
The reverse design depicts a portrait of an eagle in amazing detail that debuted alongside the program’s 35th anniversary in 2021. It was created by artist Jennie Norris, who signs certification labels exclusively for NGC. The NGC Jennie Norris Signature Label is available for NGC-certified American Gold Eagles through select retailers.
