NGC will offer a new label to celebrate the release of the 2017-S Proof Silver Eagle, which will be released in a set limited to just 75,000 pieces
The United States Mint released the Congratulations Set on April 4. Surprisingly, the Congratulations Set contains an S-mint 2017 Proof Silver Eagle, not a W-mint coin as one might expect. Only 75,000 of these sets will be sold, which will make the 2017-S Proof Silver Eagle the second-rarest in the series after the famous 1995-W.

All 2017-S Proof Silver Eagles will be attributed with “CONGRATULATIONS SET” on the NGC certification label. NGC will also offer a special San Francisco Trolley Car label (#854) for no additional fee. This label will be the default label for these coins.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The San Francisco Trolley Car label will not be available until April 19. If you would like your coins back prior to April 19, request either Blue Early Releases (#378) or Blue First Releases (#379).
- Submit the Congratulations Set under the Modern grading tier or higher. If Early Releases or First Releases is desired, select Early Releases or First Releases. If you do not want the Early Releases or First Releases designations, the San Francisco Trolley Car label will still be included by default for no additional fee with the Modern grading tier fee.
- Learn more about Early Releases and First Releases here. Also see Early Releases / First Releases cutoff dates.
- The default label will be NGC’s San Francisco Trolley Car Label #854 (shown below):
- If you would like Mint packaging returned, select “Return Mint Packaging” in section 3 of the NGC Submission Form.
- Please note that NGC’s First Day of Issue designation is available for qualifying bulk submissions only.

OK, nitpick from a transit buff – the vehicle shown is one of San Fran’s iconic cable cars, which aren’t really trolleys.
