The Legacy Knights Numismatic Society is very pleased to announce that our 2018-2019 club coins have been certified and graded by the National Guaranty Corporation and added to the NGC census!
Two 4 Coin Sets were submitted earlier this summer for certification, along with minting information and project documentation. Both sets were certified. Each of the eight coins received very high marks with one graded at MS 67, one at MS 68, and six at MS 69.
The English translation of the coin's Medieval Latin inscription was placed on the holders: ENJOY - RESPECT - LEARN - TEACH ... representing our club's four values for our Young Numismatist members: have fun, be respectful, learn something, and share your knowledge. Since these coins were originally issued as a four coin set, this provenance was also listed on the holders.
This is the culmination of a lot of work over the past two years. We are very happy to see this project get this far. Many thanks go to the NGC Tokens and Medals Department for their help and information; Xenia Coin Shop of Xenia, Ohio and Common Cents Coins of Milford, Ohio for their support of this project; parents, faculty, staff, volunteers, and friends at Legacy Christian Academy, Xenia, Ohio; our friends at the American Numismatic Association and the Money Museum; and of course Mr. Carson Engle of Two Bear Mint, without whose artistry, skill, and guidance this project would not have been possible.
The sets that were distributed through lkns.rallyup.com were not graded before being sold, therefore would be considered "raw" even though they were sent out encapsulated in Air-Tites and a wood-and-glass display box. If you bought one of those sets, or even a single coin, I would highly encourage submitting them for certification through NGC. The personnel in their Tokens and Medals department are familiar with these already. If you decide to do so, contact me with a private message and I can offer guidance for your submission.
