Why purchase this 2020-W Jefferson Nickel + US 2020 Silver Proof Set?
Collectors of American coins are in for a treat in 2020 as the US Mint introduces the first ever nickels to bear the "W" mint mark of the West Point Mint. The historic issues are being released along with the standard annual sets. In this case, a reverse proof nickel comes with the U.S Silver Proof Set. The dollar coin honors a civil rights activists, while the other highlights of the set are the American Samoa, Connecticut, Virgin Islands, Vermont, and Kansas issues in the America the Beautiful Series. While the nickels, penny, and dollar coins were struck from base metals, the dime (2.537 g), quarters (6.343 g each), and half dollar (12.685 g) were each struck from .999 fine silver.
Famous President Thomas Jefferson Design by Jamie Franki
On the obverse of the nickels, both the reverse proof and the Silver Proof Set piece, is a portrait of President Thomas Jefferson. His shoulders are angled, but his head is turned toward the holder. He is joined by the inscriptions "LIBERTY," which is in cursive, "2020," and the "W" mint mark (not on the Silver Set piece), as well as the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST." The reverses of teh two coins are identical. Felix Schlag created a design of President Jefferson's famous home. Its name, "MONTICELLO," is inscribed just below it. One of two statutory mottoes, "E PLURIBUS UNUM," is inscribed along the rim, as is the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA." Also included on this face is the face value, "FIVE CENTS."
Portraits of President Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt, and John F. Kennedy appear on the obverses of the penny, dime, and half dollar, respectively. The reverses of these coins bear the Lincoln Memorial, a torch joined by two branches, and a modified Presidential Seal. John Flanagan's portrait of President George Washington features on all of the quarters' obverses. Their reverse designs come from National Park of American Samoa (AS), Weir Farm National Historic Site (CT), Salt River Bay National Historical Park and Ecological Preserve (VI), Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park (VT), Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve (KS). The dollar coin features Sacagawea and her son, Jean Baptiste, on the obverse and a design honoring Elizabeth Peratrovich for her work on Alaska's 1945 Anti-Discrimination Law on the reverse.

The Nickel has a fascinating history that includes a four-year run of war nickels during some of America’s most challenging times (1942-1945). For all of its rich tradition, the coin has never featured the West Point Mint’s “W” mint mark… until now.
