Why purchase this 2018 Reverse Proof Jefferson Nickel struck at the San Francisco Mint?
The United States Mint began its production of the five cent denomination coin bearing the image of 3rd President of the U.S. Thomas Jefferson in 1938. The original design by Felix O. Schlag remained virtually unchanged until 2004, when a short series of Westward Journey themed nickel designs were released. In 2006, a traditional style nickel was re-introduced, featuring Schlag's reverse, with a new obverse portrait of Jefferson created by Jamie Franki. Struck at the San Francisco Mint as part of the 50th Anniversary 2018-S Silver Reverse Proof Set, this 2018-S release of the Proof Jefferson Nickel represents the first time in the long life of the series that the coin has ever been issued as a reverse proof!
Design of the Jefferson Nickel
The obverse depicts Jefferson in a forward facing pose, accompanied by the inscriptions "IN GOD WE TRUST," "LIBERTY," "2018" and "S." Jefferson's home is illustrated on the reverse, with "MONTICELLO" inscribed below. Additional inscriptions include "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "FIVE CENTS" and "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA."

There are three different places where a discussion of presidents and U.S. coinage could start: with George Washington and Lady Liberty, with Thomas Jefferson and William McKinley, or with Abraham Lincoln. As we will see, a lot depends on what “circulating” means and what a “commemorative” is, and deciding what actually counts!
