The point values assigned to a coin show in the "score" column of your set page (once you make a set, if you haven't already - see below). The number of points a coin get depend on what type of coin / coin it is, the grade, and, sometimes, the type of set it's entered into.

The points basically reflect the condition and rarity of your coins, rare coins from a key year in MS condition is worth more points than a common coin in XF condition for example. They come into play on their own once you start building NGC registry sets, say of a USA Peace Dollar sets, where the points of all your coins in that set will be added to give your set a score. Other people who assemble the same sets will get their own score as well, thus you can compare with other enthusiasts how "awesome" your set is compared to theirs. This usually awakens the competitiveness of collectors to improve their sets and steers them towards NGC instead of other TPGs.

Hope this helps, cheers!
