Understand my coin's value
Coin values are based on a number of factors, such as rarity, condition, and the content of the Precious Metals within. Because of these factors, just because one series of coins had a more limited mintage than another does not mean the value of the coins issued will always be greater. Barber Dimes are popular with many collectors but are considered more valuable when sold as a set representing several chronological years from the same mint. By contrast, Bust Dimes from different years, mint locations, and condition have highly variable monetary worth, individually or as a set. Roosevelt Dimes have coin values mostly determined by condition, but because they are readily available on the market, they are still affordable to collectors on any budget. Even when a Roosevelt Dime has been graded as Excellent condition, the asking price will still be affordable to many.
Saint-Gaudens Gold coins have been a favorite among collectors over the years, and their popularity continues to this day. Demand remains strong throughout the world, and the asking price of any Gold Saint-Gaudens is strongly influenced by this fact. Equally popular among numismatic collectors are any U.S. coins with the Seated Liberty design. The coin value for Seated Liberty dollars, half dollars and quarters are based on a number of well-known minor details that can be found on the otherwise identical artwork used. Within the United States, Lincoln Wheat Pennies are sought-after by many collectors, giving them considerable value in spite of the fact that they carry no Precious Metals content. The 1909 Lincoln Wheat Penny minted in San Francisco sells for especially high amounts, due to very limited mintage, and historical significance.
