Uncirculated

Describing a coin that has never been touched or put into general use. An uncirculated coin usually is in mint condition, which means it has no evidence of wear and tear. Depending on demand for the coin among collectors and investors, an uncirculated coin may be quite valuable, though it is an illiquid asset.
