The 200th anniversaries of the Louisiana Purchase and the Lewis and Clark expedition are the first redesign of the five-cent piece in 65 years.
In 2004 the U.S. nickel was redesigned to commemorate the bicentennial of the Louisiana Purchase, and one of Thomas Jeffersons greatest endeavors "The Corps of Discovery." The first redesign by Norman E. Nemeth was modeled after the original Indian Peace Medals. These medals were authorized for Lewis and Clark's journey westward. As a gesture of goodwill, these medals were given to Native American chiefs and other important leaders as tokens of appreciation from the United States.
Jefferson nickel rolls are sold in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, 40 coins per roll.
