In 2005 another change to the obverse of the Jefferson nickel was made. A new portrait of Thomas Jefferson which was inspired by an 18th century marble bust by Jean-Antoine Houdon. This was the first time that a 3/4 portrait had been used on a U.S. coin. The inscription of "Liberty" was based on Thomas Jeffersons handwriting. On the reverse of the nickel is the American Bison. These indigenous American animals held great significance for many of the American Native tribes and was the second time an animal had been depicted on U.S. coins. The first being the Indian Head/Buffalo nickel design of 1913 to 1938.
Jefferson nickel rolls are sold in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, 40 coins per roll.
