How your Scarcity Index works

generally collectors have had to rely upon mintage figures to identify the scarcest coins. But they alone tell function of the story.  Trying to find a good quality coin from 15 – 20 years ago, even for a higher mintage issue, is much more challenging than a more recent issue,  as coins become damaged over time and are ultimately removed from circulation .
additionally, some designs are more hoarded than others by people who might not normally gather coins – the poignant First World War £2 Coin series being an case. last, it can be up to a couple of years before the Royal Mint eventually confirms the actual mintage  for an topic .
That ’ sulfur why we have combined the coinage data with two other key pieces of information .

  • How many of each design are listed as “collected” by Change Checkers, indicating the relative ease of finding a particular coin.
  • The number of times a design has been requested as a swap over the previous 3 months, showing the current level of collector demand.

importantly, as newfangled coins are released and popularity rises and falls across unlike designs the Scarcity Index will be updated quarterly allowing Change Checkers to track the relative operation of the UK ’ randomness circulation coins .
