(Newport Beach, California) — The Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) is offering a special label for 2018-W Proof American Silver Eagle coins submitted at the Florida United Numismatists (FUN) Show being held at the Tampa Convention Center, January 4-7, 2018.
The U.S. Mint will release the 2018-W Proof Eagle on the same day the show kicks off, giving coin show spectators a unique opportunity to own a graded coin not available to many.
The obverse of the label features a beautiful sunset cityscape showing the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, Florida. Above the city skyline, the label reads, JANUARY 2018 FUN SHOW.
The label’s reverse shows the year, mint mark, denomination, certification details, and grade on a standard PCGS gradient blue field. As the show coincides with the initial release of the West Point Proof Silver Eagle, all such coins submitted at the show are eligible to receive the special FUN Show label.
Information about submission guidelines and fees for the special labels can be found online, and submission information and guidelines for First Strike designation labels are at the PCGS website.
“These special PCGS labels for the 2018 FUN Show are only the first examples of the labels we have planned for 2018. There are a lot of exciting coins coming from the U.S. Mint again this year that we’ve got some great labels to reveal that help all these new coins stand out with our unique labeling combined with our ultra-secure coin holders,” said Mark Stephenson, vice president of PCGS. PCGS is a division of Collectors Universe (NASDAQ: CLCT).
These 2018-W Proof American Silver Eagles are also among the first coins eligible for PCGS’s new service, PCGS Gold Shield. PCGS Gold Shield will replace PCGS Secure on January 1, 2018. PCGS Gold Shield is respected in the coin industry for its anti-counterfeiting technology.
