Jefferson Nickels

1938-1942

The Jefferson Nickel, began minting in 1938 with a brief interruption in production by the emergency of World War II. Designed by Felix Schlag, the obverse of this coin honors the nation’s 3rd President, Thomas Jefferson. Arranged in arcs around the border are the motto “In God We Trust” to the left, with “Liberty” and the date to the right separated by a single star. On the reverse is a front elevation view of Jefferson’s home, with the name “Monticello” beneath it. Around the border are the legends “E Pluribus Unum” (Out of Many, One) above, and “United States of America” below. Beneath Monticello is the value “Five Cents”.

The Jefferson Nickel was minted in Philadelphia (no mintmark), Denver (D), and San Francisco (S). These mintmarks appear on the reverse of the coin to the right of Monticello.

Composition: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel
