October 9, 2014 – Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) will begin to offer Chinese and English bilingual labels for its popular Early Releases® and First Releases® designations. These attractive red labels feature “CHINA” in the background along with EARLY RELEASES or FIRST RELEASES next to the NGC logo at the bottom.
NGC uses the Early Releases and First Releases designations to identify a coin that was received by NGC within 30 days of its release. These popular designations recognize that many collectors prefer to purchase modern coins soon after their release.
2014 China Panda S10Y Early Releases.
The 2015 Panda and Year of the Goat series will be among the coins eligible for NGC’s Early Releases and First Releases labels if submitted within 30 days of their release.

Early Releases and First Releases coins are grouped together under the Early Releases designation in the NGC Census and their population appears beneath the non-designated issues.
The submission instructions listed below must be followed when submitting coins for the Chinese/English Early Releases and First Releases labels.
- Coins for Early Releases or First Releases must be submitted under Modern Special or a higher tier.
- To select the Chinese Early Releases label, write “Chinese Early Releases Label” on the submission form.
To select the Chinese First Releases label, write “Chinese First Releases Label” on the submission form.
- Remove the coins from the Mint packaging and submit them raw in flips or in capsules. Coins being sent directly to NGC or an Official Submission Center do not need to be accompanied by original packaging or shipped in sealed Mint boxes, but must arrive within the first 30 days of their release by the mint.
