Co-owner of famous Las Vegas pawn shop is the latest to join the popular NGC Authentic Hand-Signed Labels program

Numismatic Guaranty Corporation® (NGC®) has announced that television personality Rick Harrison has agreed to individually autograph a limited number of NGC certification labels.

Harrison is co-owner of the World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn, in Las Vegas, Nevada, which he runs with his father and son. The family business is the subject of the popular cable television show Pawn Stars, now in its 14th season, that has led to international fame for the Harrisons.

Rick Harrison Signature NGC HolderPawn Stars features expert evaluations of historical objects and lively negotiations with would-be sellers. One of the experts to appear on the show is David Vagi, Director of NGC Ancients.

Vagi’s appearances prompted Harrison to visit NGC’s Sarasota, Florida, headquarters in January 2015. Harrison toured NGC’s facility and then traveled to the Florida United Numismatists (FUN) Convention, where he signed autographs for fans at NGC’s booth.

NGC Rick Harrison Authentic Hand-Signed Labels are the latest collaboration between the coin grading service and the famous Pawn Star. NGC-certified coins encapsulated with these labels will be available from GovMint.com this summer.

“We are always happy to have a chance to work with the team at NGC, and I am excited to be among those highly recognized names in the coin industry who have lent their names to labels with this trusted brand,” says Harrison.

“NGC is honored that Rick Harrison has agreed to take our collaboration to the next level by autographing NGC certification labels,” says Miles Standish, NGC Vice President. “He has a lot of fans in numismatics, and we expect coins encapsulated with NGC labels individually signed by Harrison to be very popular collectibles.”

Harrison joins NGC’s impressive list of label signers, including Kenneth Bressett, the longtime editor of A Guide Book of United States Coins (the “Red Book”); the Hon. Gov. Mike Castle, the congressman who helped launch the 50 State Quarters Program; and John M. Mercanti, the 12th Chief Engraver of the US Mint and designer of the American Silver Eagle reverse.

  1. Well this certainly diminishes NGC’s reputation in my mind. This is about money and has absolutely nothing to do with the grading of coins.
