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:

Collector Index

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
A Highest score possible: generally an indication of true rarity and certain to ignite fierce bidding amongst collectors nearly every time offered for sale.
B A very good score: most likely destined to forever remain popular with collectors, placing consistent upward pressure on pricing.
C So-So score: won't initiate a lot of enthusiasm, but will always have a coin collection value because needed to complete a set.
D 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.
F 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?.
