New Zealand Mint Partners with CGC on Star Wars Label

We are thrilled to announce our partnership with the Certified Guaranty Company (CGC) to create a special CGC Star Wars certification label for our new Star Wars: A New Hope Premium Silver Foil.

CGC Star Wars Label

CGC will grade these foils according to its industry-standard grading scale. The highest grade, Gem Mint 10.0, is assigned to collectibles that appear flawless. It is approximately equivalent to a grade of 70 on the Sheldon numismatic grading scale used by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) and Paper Money Guaranty (PMG), two independent affiliates of CGC.

NGC, PMG and CGC are the leading and largest third-party grading services in their categories, having graded more than 40 million coins, 2.5 million notes and 4.5 million comic books, respectively.
