Why add the 1997-P Jefferson Nickel Specimen NGC Specimen 69 to your collection?

Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded this 1997-P Satin Finish Jefferson Nickel at the elevated Specimen 69 level. This was part of the limited 1997 Botanic Garden Coin and Currency Set which had a mintage of 25,000. The coin was struck at the world famous Philadelphia branch of the U.S. Mint.

Classic Jefferson Nickel design

The obverse of the coin features the timeless portrait of Thomas Jefferson that was first struck on the Nation's five cent piece in 1938. Jefferson was a noted statesman, Third President of the U.S. and the Principal writer of the Declaration of Independence. The reverse of the coin features his home, Monticello. The coin was designed by Felix O. Schlag.

Specimen 69 collector grade

This "satin" finish is similar to the Mint's "Uncirculated" or burnished finish. The dies and planchets are specially prepared and once struck, the coin has a slightly frosted or textures appearance. Since the coin is not a proof or a business strike and there was special preparation, the coin is referred to as a "specimen." The numeric 69 grade simply means that the coin is nearly flawless. There may me a minute distraction or imperfection that is well away from the focal areas of the design. Specimen 69 coins are desirable examples that offer value to collectors.
