5) Scarcity

The same amount of coins aren’t created every year. These differences in availability create scarcity. The scarcer a coin is the more valuable it is (usually). A few scarce but still obtainable coins include:
• 1914-D Wheat Penny
• 1909-S Wheat Penny
• 1931-S What Penny
• 1877 Indian Head
• 1913-S Buffalo Nickel
• 1926-S Buffalo Nickel
• 1942-D Jefferson Nickel

While date and availability are major factors for determining the value of a coin, condition, errors, and metal content are also important aspects.
