2019-W Lincoln cent vs. 1996-W Roosevelt dime
Uncirculated 2019-W Lincoln cents, the first to bear this mintmark, will be included in this year’s Mint Sets. (Proof counterparts will be available also.) The last time something similar was offered was in 1996, with the inclusion of a W dime in that year’s set. The 1996-W dime, mintage 1.45 million, currently sells for about $10. Mint sets today have much lower mintages, around 300K. Lincoln cents are more widely collected than Roosevelt dimes.
So a few interesting questions arise. How much will this cent spark additional demand for the 2019 Mint Set? And will the W cent carry a higher price tag than the W dime after final mintage figures are revealed?
