Grading Gold Coins


The value of a coin is in part determined by is "grade," or how well preserved it is. The most basic part of grading is determining how much a coin is worn. To describe a coin which is not present, such as in correspondence, numismatists have agreed on a series of terms to describe how much wear there is on a coin. From best (no wear at all) to worst (worn out) they are:

Uncirculated (Mint State)
Almost Uncirculated
Extremely Fine (Extra Fine)
Very Fine
Fine
Very Good
Good
Fair
Poor

For every type of United States and Canadian coin, specific criteria have been agreed on for each degree of wear. For the United States coins these criteria were arrived at under the auspices of the American Numismatic Association and have been published in Official A.N.A. Grading Standards for United States Coins, usually called The Gray Book. It is carried and used by virtually every coin shop. All dealers, however, follow certain general principles. Below are some illustrations of coins in each state of wear, with some of the basic requirements for that grade.

Uncirculated (Inc.) or Mint State (MS) coins, those with no wear at all, as though they had just come from the mint, have been divided into 11 basic categories, from 60 to 70, the latter being best. The reason for this is that even with no circulation at all, the coins themselves do hit each other while stored at the mint in large bags, leaving minute scuffs. These scuffs are called "bag marks." While these 11 points are a continuum, the ANA has not traditionally recognized intermediate grades other than the ones listed below. Many coin dealers do. When the legendary numismatic scholar and cataloger Walter Breen was asked if he could tell and MS-61 from an MS-62, he replied "No." It is simply ammunition for those whose motivation is dishonesty and greed.

The description Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) does not indicate an exact spot on this 11-point continuum. It simply means that the coin is uncirculated and had all or most of its original mint luster. Uncirculated or Mint State coins with absolutely no bag marks or any other problems are called MS-70 but these perfect coins do not really exist for most series. To be MS-70, a coin must be fully struck and have no unpleasant stains or discoloration. Copper must have full luster. Recent made-for-collector coins packaged at the mint have a far better chance of grading MS-70 than a coin made for circulation.

MS-67 is the nearest thing to a perfect coin that is likely to be practically obtainable. It may have the faintest of bag marks discernable only through a magnifying glass. Copper must have luster.

MS-65 is a grade describing an exceptional coin. It is the highest grade that can be easily obtained when conservative grading is used. It will have no significant bag marks, particularly in open areas or on the cheek when a face is depicted. Fewer than one coin in hundreds qualify for this grade, and is one of the most popular grade of coins with investors.

MS-63 coins are pleasant, collectible examples that exhibit enough bag marks to be noticed, but not so many as to be considered marred, with particularly few on open areas such as the field or a cheek.

MS-60 describes those coins that were quite scuffed up at the mint before their release. They will often have nicks and discoloration. Sometimes called "commercial uncirculated," they may actually be less pleasant to behold tha a higher grade circulated coin.

About Uncriculated (AU) describes coins with such slight signs of wear that some people may in fact need a mild magnifying glass to see them. A trace of luster should be visible. One should be careful not to confuse an attractive AU coin for Uncirculated.

Extremely Fine (EF, XF) is the highest grade of coin that exhibits wear significant enough to be seen easily by the unaided eye. It is a coin that still exhibits extremely clear minute detail. IN the case of American coins featuring the word LIBERTY on a headband or shield, all letters must be sharp and clear. Many coins will exhibit luster but it is not necessary.

Very Fine (VF) coins will show obvious signs of wear. Nevertheless, most of the detail of the design will still be clear. It is an overall pleasant coin. On American coins with LIBERTY on ta headband or shield, all letter must be clear.

Fine (F) is the lowest grade most people would consider collectible. About half the design details will show for most types. On United States coins with LIBERTY described earlier, all letter must be visible if not sharp.

Very Good (VG) coins exhibit heavy wear. All outlines are clear, as is, generally, the rim. Some internal detail will also show, but most will be worn off. At least three letters of LIBERTY described earlier must be legible, all letter on pre-1857 copper and Morgan dollars.

Good (G) coins are generally considered uncollectible except for novelty purposes. There will usually be no internal detail to the design at all. Some of the rim may also be worn out. LIBERTY as described earlier will be worn off on most coins, and will show just trace elements on pre-1857 copper and Morgan dollars.

About Good (aG) and Fair (Fr) are grades in which only truly scarce coins are collected. Many collectors would rather do without a coin than to add it to their collections. The rim will be worn down and some ouline to the design may be gone.

Poor (Pr) is the lowest possible grade. Many coins in Poor condition will not even be identifiable. When identifiable, many will still be condemned to the melting pot. Few collectors would consider owning such a coin except in the case of the most extreme rarities.

Sometimes treated as a grade, but technically not one at all is Proof (PF). Proof quality is a special way of making coins for presentation. A proof coin is usually double struck with highly polished dies on polished blanks, usually yielding a mirror-like finish. These days proof coins are mass-marketed by the mint to collectors. Earlier in the 20th century, matte or sandblast proofs were popular, characterized by a non-reflective but highly detailed surface. Cameo proof is a particular kind that has been stuck with dies polished only in the fields, but with the details such as the portrait deliverately given a full finish. For some coins, these cameo proofs have a premium value above regular proofs, which often grade MS-65 or higher.
