Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez

The 1995 Doubled Die is the last of its kind. Late in the 1990's the Philadelphia and Denver Mint began using a single hub technique. The single hub technique would only strike all dies once, therefore, eliminating the possibility of striking major doubled die coins.

The 1995 Doubled Die is dramatic enough that it can be seen with the naked eye. When the coins were initially discovered, they were commanding as much as $300 for each raw example. As time went by, many more examples were discovered and the premiums dropped to as low as $20 or less for each coin.
 
The 1995 Doubled Die Lincoln cent is still a very neat coin. It is the most dramatic Doubled Die for all circulating coins from 1995 to date. And because so many of them were struck, they are easily affordable that just about anyone can own one.
