Why buy this 65-Coin 1938-1961 Jefferson Nickel Set?
The Jefferson Nickel replaced the famous Buffalo Nickel in 1938. Early in its history, the series underwent a fascinating development. During the Second World War, the US government determined that nickel was an important element for the war effort, so they replaced the standard cupro-nickel mix with a copper-silver-manganese alloy. Known as "war nickels," these coins were struck from 1942-1945. All eleven types of war nickels join 54 others in this set, which consists of the first 65 issues in the series. All of the coins are in average circulated condition.
Stunning Monticello Design by Felix Schlag
Both faces of these coins bear the designs of Felix Schlag. On the obverse is a left-side portrait of President Thomas Jefferson. He is flanked by two sets of rim inscriptions, "IN GOD WE TRUST" to the left and "LIBERTY" and the date to the right.
On the reverse is Jefferson's famous Virginia home, Monticello. Its name is inscribed just below the building, which is shown from the front. Other inscriptions on this face include "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one), "FIVE CENTS," and "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA."
