English term or phrase: scarcity value
Definition from Wikipedia:
Scarcity value is the economic factor that increases an item's relative price based more upon its relatively low supply. Whereas the prices of newly-produced manufactured products depends mostly on the cost of production (the cost of inputs used to produce them, which in turn reflects the scarcity of the inputs), the prices of many goods -- such as antiques, rare stamps, and those raw materials in high demand -- reflects the scarcity of the products themselves.

Example sentence(s):
  • The improving economic situation makes up for fairly small borrowing needs increasing the scarcity value for Sweden’s triple-A bonds Incisive Media Ltd.
  • Then there is the simple fact that about ten times more apartments have been built than villas since 2002, so villas have a scarcity value as well as being perceived as the better lifestyle choice. Axia Fx
  • If it's common for a company to miss a profits forecast, then, by definition, it's unusual for a company rarely to miss a forecast. Such a company, therefore, has a scarcity value and its shares should be sought-after. The Financial Times Limited

Example sentence(s):
  • 記念コインではなく、通貨として利用できる硬貨の価値を調べました。 発行枚数の少ない順にリストアップしました。 枚数の単位は、千枚です。 (1) 昭和62年 50円 775    ●● 希少価値、最高! (2) 昭和62年 500円 2775 (3) 昭和35年 500円 6000 (4) 平成12年 50円 7026 (5) 平成13年 1円、50円、100円 8024 (6) 平成12年 5円 9030 (7) 平成14年 1円 9667 (8) 昭和32年 5円 10000 (9) 昭和33年 10円 25000 硬貨によって、発行枚数が違うため、硬貨の種類が違う場合、発行枚数だけでは評価できないかも知れません。 発行枚数に限定すると、上記結果より、昭和62年に発行された50円が最も希少価値があることになります。 約200倍以上の価値があるようです。 - コイン 記念硬貨 買取ショッ
