Flawless Early Releases Proof 70
This 2016 Canada $30 2 oz. Illuminated Underwater Reef Colorized Silver Proof was submitted for grading to the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) within the first thirty days of its issue, earning it the designation Early Releases. This coin was examined by experienced NGC graded, who closely looked over the coin under 5x magnification. No flaws were found, and the coin was classified under the highest grade - Proof 70 Ultra Cameo. Ultra Cameo refers to the fine contrast between frosted and mirrored portions of the design, which is only achieved with an expertly applied proof finish.
