This list of materials that we officially authenticate, attribute and grade is periodically updated as we continue to expand the service. We offer certified grading for most of these materials using our regular and Oversize holders; however, a color photo certificate may be issued if your item is too large or too fragile to be encapsulated.

Tokens and medals may be submitted under any grading tier based on value and desired turnaround time. Also select the Tokens and Medals service, which does not have an additional fee. Variety attribution, where applicable, is included.

Important Note: Chinese Medals Certified by NGC

NGC will only grade and encapsulate modern Chinese medals that have been made at one of the four official Mints of China (Nanjing, Shanghai, Shenyang, and Shenzhen Guobao). While NGC maintains a large record of official Chinese medals, we cannot guarantee that we can attribute all medals sent to us.

In order for NGC to attribute and grade any official Chinese Medal (or Medallion), we request that any medal submitted to us have the appropriate verification documentation (or certificate of authenticity issued by the People’s Bank of China [China Mint Company]). Verification documentation should include the date of the medal (or year struck/issued), diameter and metal content, mint it was struck at, and the mintage. Failure to include this information could result in the medal being returned un-graded with a note signifying the coin to be Non Eligible.

Three examples of Chinese medals that are eligible for NGC certification (all of which where struck at the Shanghai Mint, China) are:

  • 1984 Hong Kong, China Expo – Panda Silver 1 Ounce, Proof, 1,000 Minted
  • 1989 Folk Gods Series: Maitreya Buddha Gold ¼ Ounce, Proof, 5,000 Minted
  • 1989 Zhao Gongming Silver 3.3 Ounces, Proof, 2,430 Minted

Check this listing periodically as new material types are added.

NGC reserves the right to attribute based on the most commonly used or available reference when an item is listed in more than one subject reference. You can request that a particular reference be used; however, it will be attributed to the reference normally used and that serves as the basis of the listing in the Census Report at the discretion of NGC.

We will make an effort to certify most US, European and Latin American tokens and medals not yet included in this list. However, if you have a token or medal that is not listed here, contact us to find out if your medal is eligible for NGC certification before you submit it.
