In celebration of the U.S. Mint release of the 2019-W quarters into circulation, PCGS is offering a series of rewards and limited pedigrees to the first people to submit 2019-W quarters to PCGS for grading and encapsulation.

The first qualifying 2019-W quarters of each release certified by PCGS will be attributed with a unique pedigree of PCGS First Discovery. Additionally, any qualifying 2019-W quarters submitted within the first week after the PCGS First Discovery will receive a First Week of Discovery pedigree. After that 7-day period, any qualifying 2019-W quarters certified within 45 days after the PCGS First Discovery will receive an Early Find pedigree.

These limited pedigrees will be available for qualifying submissions of each of the five 2019-W America The Beautiful Quarters: Lowell National Historical Park, American Memorial Park, War in the Pacific National Historical Park, San Antonio Missions National Historical Park and Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness.

Submit your 2019-W Quarters for this special program for only $20 per Coin!
