Description & Analysis

Economic Depression dominated the period 1894-96, and this is reflected in the relatively low mintages of nickels during those years. Examples of the 1894 issue are slightly scarce across all grades F 12 and higher. The Mint State population likely includes some resubmissions, as there exists a greater urgency to secure gems of this date than for most others in the series. Like most Liberty Nickels of the 1890s, the typical piece is less than fully struck.

No varieties have been reported for the 1894 nickel, but any such that are found would have to be pretty significant to exceed the premium already attached to this date.

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.
