    Hi
    I’ve got a 2011 1 oz Koala in a PCGS slab. The slab has SP69 printed on it and when you enter the serial numbers into the PCGS site it comes up graded MS69, so why the difference?
    Anyone know?

    Could be a label printing error. best to contact PCGS direct for more information

    Thanks but it something to do with it being a specimen coin. I’ve found quite a few 1 oz Koalas on eBay USA labelled SP69 and when you put theIr serial numbers in the PCGS website it also says graded MS69. Their website is not easy to understand.
    I given up thinking about it I got this one from an associate in the USA 3 years ago and he’s been trying to explain it to me.
    Cheers for your reply.
