|With a mintage of only 238,000 coins, the 1912-S Liberty Nickel is the lowest mintage Liberty Nickel in the entire series. The 1912-S Liberty Nickel is also the only Liberty Nickel struck at the San Francisco Mint. Accordingly, this date is one of the key dates of the series and is in high demand in nearly all grades. This example of the 1912-S Liberty Nickel has been graded MS64 by PCGS and is encapsulated in a newer-style edge-view holder. The piece has excellent mint luster and a relatively strong strike which is much better than the average strike found on this date which is often weakly struck. Most noticeable, however, is the amazing toning on this coin. Both sides of the coin are fully covered with beautiful toning that transitions from a bold golden color to a vibrant pink with hints of blue. A few light hits can be found under a close inspection, but they are almost unnoticed in hand as the eye is drawn to the luster and color first. A stunning, near-gem example of this key-date Liberty Nickel.
Because of the difficulty in capturing the overall look of the coin in a single image, I have also included a short high-definition video of the coin towards the bottom of this listing in an attempt to give you a better idea of what this coin will look like in hand. Please note that you may need to adjust the video quality to 1080p and may need to increase the size of the video to full screen in order to see the coin in maximum detail.
