NGC's India label features the iconic Taj Mahal in Agra. It was built in the 17th century by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan as a tomb for his wife Mumtaz. The architectural triumph is a UNESCO World Heritage site and an internationally recognized symbol of the nation of India.

This label can be used on all common date modern (1955 and later) India coins (45 mm in diameter and smaller). To learn more about NGC's special labels, click here.

NGC determines whether coins are genuine and, if genuine, they are assigned a grade on an internationally recognized scale. After coins are graded, they are encapsulated in a secure holder with a label that features the coins' description, grade and unique certification number. NGC's standard label is brown, but special and custom labels are available.

To help ensure impartiality, NGC's full-time graders are prohibited from buying and selling coins commercially, and strict procedures are in place to prevent consultants from influencing the grades assigned to their own submissions. Every coin that NGC certifies is backed by the comprehensive NGC Guarantee of authenticity and grade, which has added confidence and value for collectors and dealers around the world.

NGC recently launched a website for the 1.3 billion people in the India market:

Submissions to NGC in India can be made through Peacock Bloom Numismatic, LLP (Peacock Bloom), an NGC Official Submission Center in India. To learn more about how to submit in India, click here.
