As an added bonus, we've developed a feature
exclusively for the
download reports called the Collector Index, which estimates
the level of collector interest for a given coin
across the full grade spectrum.
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
showing in the coin price guide.
The Collector 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!
||Highest score possible: generally an
indication of true rarity and certain to
ignite fierce bidding amongst collectors nearly every time offered for
||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: In lower grades, contains some
degree of numismatic value, but
value is largely based on silver content; in higher grades,
characterized by plentiful supply and slow price advancements.
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?.
