New Issue: PCGS offers Proof silver eagle label for 2018 FUN Show

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) Convention, which opens tomorrow at the Tampa Convention Center.

The U.S. Mint will also release the 2018-W Proof Eagle tomorrow, allowing attendees a unique opportunity to own a graded coin not available to many.

“These special PCGS labels for the 2018 FUN Show are only the first examples of the labels we have planned for 2018,” said Mark Stephenson, vice president of PCGS. “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.”

The obverse of the label features a sunset skyline showing the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, Fla. Above the city’s skyline, the label reads “JANUARY 2018 FUN SHOW,” which will run until Jan. 7.

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 here and submission information and guidelines for “First Strike” designation labels are found here.

These 2018-W Proof American Silver Eagles are also among the first coins eligible for PCGS’s new service, PCGS Gold Shield, which replaced PCGS Secure on Jan. 1.
