NGC  Mint Director Signature Series labels enhance and differentiate your coin from others in the same grade, serving a function beyond recording the coin’s authenticity and condition. The presentation and collectible value of these coins is enhanced by being signed by Edmund C. Moy, 38th Director of the United States Mint.
