key date A key date is a coin from a type set with a low number of available coins either due to a low minting or from melting.

For example let us say there is a coin that has been minted for 3 years. In the first year 1 million coins were minted. In the second year only 500 coins were minted. In the third year 2 million coins were minted. The second year is considered the key date from this type set as it is much rarer than the other years.
