The abbreviations that accompany these various coins indicate if each coin is issued in solely “mint state” certification, or if the coin is also available in the “proof” version. Proof coins are specially minted, and present an image that almost appears to be three-dimensional, where the coin’s designs, or “elements” appear to be floating above an almost mirror-like background, or “field”.
It is advisable to purchase only certified gold coins that have been officially certified by either the PCGS (Professional Coin Grading Service), or the NGC (Numismatic Guaranty, as these two companies receive preferential consideration from gold traders, when the time comes to liquidate.
