The medal’s obverse design combines the PCGS monogram superimposed over a world globe and the anniversary years inscribed around. The inscriptions are raised.

The reverse employs the PCGS shield over a globe, and around the border inscriptions of the locations where PCGS maintains offices — Newport Beach (Calif.), Hong Kong and Shanghai in China, and Paris.

The reverse inscriptions are incuse.

The encapsulation combines a number of overt and covert security devices, Sloan said.

While housed in a fifth generation holder, the insert label, on which the grading information is normally found, is a retro rendition of the “Old Green Holder” type employed with first and second generation PCGS plastic holders issued from 1986 through 1990, Sloan said.
