Why purchase this 2020-W Jefferson Nickel + 2020 US Silver Proof Set?
Collectors with an interest in American numismatic history are in for a treat in 2020 as the US Mint issues the first ever nickels to bear the West Point Mint's "W" mint mark. This Reverse Proof Nickel, which bears the mint mark, comes with the annual US Silver Proof Set. That set consists of the coins that were issued for circulation in 2020. Besides the nickel that bears the mint mark, particularly noteworthy coins are the quarters, which represent American Samoa, Connecticut, the Virgin Islands, Vermont, and Kansas, and the dollar, which honors a civil rights activist. The dime (2.537 g), quarters (6.343 g), and half dollar (12.685 g) were each struck from .999 fine silver, while the other coins were struck from base metals.
Classic President Thomas Jefferson Design by Jamie Franki
The reverse proof nickel features Jamie Franki's portrait of President Thomas Jefferson on the obverse. America's third President looks directly into the eyes of the holder. Inscriptions on this face include the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," "LIBERTY," which is in cursive, the date, "2020," and the mint mark. Monticello, Jefferson's famous Virginia home, features on the reverse. "MONTICELLO" is inscribed below it, as are the coin's face value, "FIVE CENTS," and the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA." "E PLURIBUS UNUM" is inscribed at the top.
Portraits of American Presidents feature on the obverse of all but one of the coins in the Silver Set. From smallest to largest, they are Abraham Lincoln (cent), Thomas Jefferson (nickel), Franklin Roosevelt (dime), George Washington (quarters), and John F. Kennedy (half dollar). The lone exception is the dollar coin, which bears an image of Sacagawea. The reverse of that dollar bears a design honoring civil rights activist Elizabeth Peratrovich. On the quarters are images from National Park of American Samoa, Weir Farm National Historic Site, Salt River Bay National Historical Park and Ecological Preserve, Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park, and Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve. The other coins bear their traditional designs. They are the Lincoln Memorial (cent), Monticello (nickel), torch flanked by two branches (dime) and a modified Presidential Seal (half dollar).
