|The Lincoln Cent Value Trend
Report carries historical value trend data on most collectible dates in
this series. If your goal is to select Lincoln Cents with the best
potential for future price advancements, this report is for you.
The Lincoln Cent Value Trend Report is a
valuable tool for numismatists seeking historical pricing data in
support of Lincoln Cent collecting purchases.
- Provides the Lincoln Cent collector with historic value
trends over the last half century for individual coins dated 1909
through 1940, plus later date error varieties.
- Identifies the Lincoln Cents with the best opportunity
solid future growth, based on proven past performance. Grades
Good to Proof taken into consideration.
- Designed for coin buyers who have long term value
appreciation in mind.
- Utilizes well organized data tables to record retail
from past to present. Annual percentage return rates are employed to
be aware our Lincoln Cent Report has not
been updated since 2008 (which explains its super discount price).
However, the report has great value, since dates with the best prospect
of rising in value are almost always the same, whether the analysis was
done a few years ago or yesterday.
Quite a few people collect Lincoln head pennies
without an eye toward future price movements. That's perfectly
fine, not a thing wrong with that. In fact, many of us got
started in the coin collecting hobby by pushing "Wheaties" into those
blue Whitman coin folders (sometimes with the assistance of a hammer!).
However, many numismatists set a dual objective: pursue the hobby as an
enjoyable pastime **AND** while they're at it, purchase
collectible "Blue Chip" coins destined to rise strongly in value in the
years ahead. These collectors wisely understand the importance of
reselling someday, or passing along valuable heirlooms to their family
or favorite charity. But...
How do I find "Blue Chip" coins?
That's the question many collectors struggle
with but never accurately answer because they lack information.
So many dates and conditions, but only a tiny few end up rising in
value faster than all the others. Yes, it is so bewildering!
Without any historical perspective into long term collector
preferences, coin buyers of all stripes all too often saddle themselves
down with coins having poor advancement potential. Sadly, they
discover this years after the fact.
The Lincoln Cent Value Trend Report is loaded with data.
From now on, base your Lincoln Cent purchase decisions on factual
evidence of past performance. The most important guiding principle to
best benefit from the report is this:
The coins most eagerly pursued by the
collector base for many years will remain the "hot" coins in the future.
At the heart of the value trend report are the Coin
Value Tables. There is one table for each Lincoln Cent date.
The tables are concise and easy to use. Here is a portion of a
Year: This column indicates the year for which the values
in each row correspond to.
Grade: This row indicates coin grade, based on the ANA
scale. Example: G-4 stands for Good-4.
Value: The example circled indicates this coin was worth
$25.00 in VG-8 condition in the year 1975.
Return Rate %: Show the effective percentage annual return
rate, from the year in the far left column to the present. The example
circles indicates this coin in F-12 condition advanced at a rate of
9.02% annually from 1950 to 2008. The same coin grew at an annual rate
of 8.45% from 2003 to 2008.
If you've managed to read this far down the
page, you'll be happy to know you're almost to the end. Now that you
understand how to benefit from the Coin Value Tables, here is

But wait! There's more....
As an added bonus, we've developed a feature
exclusively for the download reports called the Collector Index,
the purpose of which is to estimate the level of collector interest for
a given coin across the full grade spectrum. The idea of the
index is to help the coin collector interpret the data tables faster.
A high score suggests the coin attracts keen attention within the
numismatic community, translating to good potential for solid future
value growth; a low score means to expect a comparatively sluggish
performance in the coin price guide.
In short, the Collector Index points out the "Blue Chip" coins
we discussed earlier.
The index is found in the bottom row of every Coin Value Table
in the print version. Here is how it appears:
The Collector Index is found
in the bottom row of every Coin Value Table in the print version.
It estimates the potential value growth for the highlighted coin in a
range of conditions.
The Collector Index score is based on two measures:
- Percentage Return Rates. Strong value
increases consistently over long periods of time carry the biggest
clout in this component of the Index.
- Current price range. Coins with bigger price
tags have a better chance of earning a good Index score compared to
lesser coins. Why is this? Consider a coin that doubles in value from
.50 to $1.00 over a five year period; in effect, this coin compounded
annually at a rate of 14.67% over the five years. Nice, but who gets
excited about a 50 cent gain? On the other hand, a coin that doubles
from $250 to $500 over the same time is something to get jazzed about!
|Collector Index Scorecard
||Highest score possible: generally an
indication of true rarity and certain to ignite fierce bidding amongst
collectors nearly every time offered for sale.
||A very good score: most likely destined
to forever remain popular with collectors, placing consistent upward
pressure on pricing.
||So-So score: won't initiate a lot of
enthusiasm, but will always have a coin collection value because needed
to complete a set.
||Low Score: contains some degree of
numismatic value, but are rather plentiful and traditionally slow
||Not Applicable. Our philosophy is
that we do not attach a failing score to any coin we report on. We
respect too much these artifacts from bygone eras to in any way
insinuate they're worthless in today's world. Many of you probably feel
the same. Who among us wouldn't skip a heart beat upon spotting a worn
1936 Lincoln Cent in pocket change?.
