Description & Analysis

The million+ proof sets sold in 1957 resulted in a backlash this year, and sales fell by a third. Of course, this only prompted a speculative frenzy in the "rare" 1958 proof sets! The lower than normal mintage for currency nickels only added to the mania.

As in 1957, the 1958 nickels featured a much larger star separating LIBERTY from the date, an appealing feature that was mysteriously dropped in 1959 and subsequent years.

1958 proof nickels are common in gem grades, and enough were coined to make Cameo pieces available to advanced collectors. The Census figures inflate their percentage relative to the overall population, as such coins are more likely to be submitted for grading.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
