Established in 2008, WINGS® (an acronym for World Identification and Numismatic Grading Service) reviews your World Coins, Tokens and Medals that have been graded by PCGS, NGC, ICG, ANACS or ICCS (Canadian Grading Service) to determine if, in our opinion, they are either “Premium Quality” or “Solid for the Grade” within the grade assigned to them by the third party grading service. If it is “Premium Quality” within the assigned grade then, it will receive the WINGS® Fraud Proof and Tamper Proof Gold Sticker. If the coin, token or medal is “Solid for the Grade” indicating a quality coin, token or medal, then it will receive the WINGS® Fraud Proof and Tamper Proof Silver Sticker.
What Can WINGS® Do For Your World Coins?
Items that are premium quality within the grade that was assigned to them by a third party grading service are generally worth more than similar coins, tokens or medals that are not premium quality within that same grade. The WINGS® Fraud and Tamper Proof Gold Sticker makes it easy for you to identify, in our opinion, whether a graded world coin, token or medal is premium quality within that assigned grade.
