Jefferson Nickels

1946-Present

The Jefferson Nickel, began minting in 1938. 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”. Beginning in 1966, Schlag’s initials “FS” appear below the truncation of Jefferson’s bust.

The Jefferson Nickel was minted in Philadelphia (no mintmark), Denver (D), and San Francisco (S). These mintmarks appeared to the right of Monticello through 1964, when their use was suspended due to a nationwide coin shortage. Mintmarks were restored beginning in 1968, though since that date they have been placed beneath the date, to the right of Jefferson’s peruke.

Composition: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel
