Among the upgrades to the PMG holder is a new high-security hologram, which has an improved design that boasts a dozen overt and covert security features. The new hologram is also significantly brighter and more colorful than before.

The PMG label design has been upgraded with a more modern look that adds space for more detailed note descriptions. The labels also have the capability to showcase much larger and more vivid graphics for special and custom PMG labels, similar to the variety of attractive labels offered by PMG’s affiliate, Numismatic Guaranty Corporation® (NGC®).

The new PMG labels have the capability to showcase much larger and more vivid graphics. The PMG US Flag Special Label and PMG China Great Wall Special Label shown here will be available in June.

The fourth-generation PMG holder continues to be made from the same high-quality, inert polymer that has been proven to provide outstanding long-term preservation and protection. PMG’s holder is also crystal-clear for optimal display of an encapsulated banknote.

Every PMG label includes a unique certification number and barcode, microprinting and ultraviolet (UV) ink to protect against counterfeiting and tampering. For additional security, every PMG holder is sealed with a custom embossed pattern and imaged after encapsulation. Images of PMG-certified notes can be viewed online for free at

The upgraded PMG holders will be used beginning April 13 for banknotes received at PMG’s US headquarters as well as its offices in Munich, London and Hong Kong, China. The new holders will be used beginning in mid-May for banknotes received at PMG's office in Shanghai.
