Why does this superbly graded 1912 Liberty Head Nickel belong in your collection?

The Liberty Head Nickel was an annual product of the U.S. Mint, issued for circulation from 1883 until 1912. There are an additional five known examples with the 1913 date, which were clandestinely struck without the authorization of the Mint. The series features the artistry of Charles E. Barber, who succeeded his father William as the Mint's Chief Engraver in 1880. The Liberty Head Nickel also holds the moniker of the "V" Nickel, for the bold Roman numeral declaration of its denomination on the reverse.

  • This Liberty Head V Nickel was minted in 1912, the final official year of issue for the series.
  • The coin is a product of the Philadelphia Mint, struck from a composition of 75% copper and 25% nickel.
  • The 21.20 mm diameter coin features a smooth edge.
  • The coin is one of 26,234,569 minted.
