Why order this 1892 PF63 Liberty Head Nickel?
The Liberty Head Nickel had a relatively brief run from 1883-1913. Over that time, it was used in daily commerce frequently. Proof pieces from the series tended to have low mintages. This coin's mintage of just 2,745 pieces makes it an attractive choice for collectors who like owning coins that few others have.
Striking Liberty Design by Charles Barber
Charles Barber designed both the obverse and the reverse. Obverse: A young Liberty is shown in left-side profile wearing a coronet that bears an inscription of her name on the obverse. The date, "1892," is inscribed below her portrait. Thirteen stars, which represent the original states, spread throughout the rest of the irm.
Reverse: The coin's face value is noted on the reverse with a large Roman numeral "V" at the center, which combines with the word "CENTS," which is at the bottom of this face. The "V" is encircled by an open wreath above which is the statutory motto "E PLURIBUS UNUM." "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" is inscribed along the rim.
