NOTE ABOUT COIN GRADES:
The CoinCards are available in three different grades.
Grade One is the economy BULLION grade of coin. This is the best grade to select for emergency/preparedness use, as it offers the lowest cost per ounce of Silver.
Minor cosmetic blems are common on this "Bullion" grade of coin, as the coins drop from the press into catch buckets. Bullion grade coins are only struck once on the press, and do not have the same quality of relief as the proof grade does.
Grade TWO is a coin that was minted and is UNCIRCULATED, sometimes known as a "Proof", but may have failed the final quality check. It may be noticeably nicer than the bullion grade, but although uncirculated, could contain at least one minor defect, scratch, or blem that restricts it from being a proof.
The best grade is hand struck, a Mint-State Proof coin with no visible defects, sealed in the clear capsule packaging. Proof grade coins are repeatedly struck several times on the press, yielding the highest level of detail and relief possible.
