Today’s Deal – 1998-S Lincoln Cent Proof

Today’s Deal is on a somewhat elusive modern Lincoln Cent proof coin. The 1998-S Lincoln Cent had a low mintage and that makes it a bit more rare than the years surrounding it. Today on Amazon, you can pick one of these proof coins for $7.99 including free shipping. That makes it a little less than the $9.20 book price for this coin.

In total, only 2,086,507 of the 1998-S Cent were produced. That is about 700,000 less than the average number for Proof Cents in the mid-to-late 1990s. While that isn’t a big number in the overall number of coins the United States Mint produces each year, it makes all the difference in the world on Proof coins.

The coin that you will get is Gem Proof, meaning it should grade at PF-65 or higher. That makes the $8 a real value.
