Why purchase this 1899 Liberty Head Nickel Proof?
Issued from 1883-1913, the Liberty Head Nickel had a run that was relatively brief. Even so, it played an important role in daily commerce. This proof version comes from a low mintage and is perfect for collectors who appreciate the designs of circulated coinage but like to see them with special finishes.
Striking Liberty Design by Charles E. Barber
Charles E. Barber designed both faces of this coin. Obverse: The obverse bears a left-side portrait of Liberty. She has her hair held back in a bun and wears a tiara that bears an inscription of her name. Her likeness is encircled by thirteen stars, which symbolize the original states, and the date, "1899."
Reverse: At the center of the reverse is the Roman numeral "V," which combines with the inscription "CENTS" at the bottom of this face to offer the coin's face value. The "V" is partially encircled by a wreath, above which is the inscription "E PLURIBUS UNUM." "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" is inscribed along the rim.
