This 4-coin set features one of every major type and composition of U.S. 5-cent piece issued during the 20th century. Each set includes a Liberty Head nickel (1883-1913), Buffalo nickel (1913-1938), and two Jefferson nickels, including one struck in the standard copper-nickel alloy (1938-1941 and 1946-present) and one WWII emergency issue struck in a silver alloy (1942-1945). Each coin is housed in an airtight capsule and presented in a luxurious, plush-lined wood box with embossed metallic gold lettering, piano-black finish, and certificate of authenticity. The coins are unconditionally guaranteed to be genuine, dated between 1900 and 1999, and will match the quality of the ones shown. If you are interested in building a collection, consider adding other great selections from the Relics of a Bygone Era Series to compliment your purchase, including the 20th-century dime, quarter, and half dollar collections.

 

HISTORY

The U.S. Mint has produced 5-cent coins since its inception in 1792. Originally struck in silver and referred to as "half-dimes," the denomination was not struck in nickel until 1866. This vintage 4-coin set features one of every major type and composition of circulating U.S. nickel issued during the 20th century. The coins in this collection were hand-selected by professional numismatists after screening thousands of coins for quality and eye-appeal. Included is a Liberty Head nickel (1883-1913), Buffalo nickel (1913-1938), and two Jefferson nickels, one struck in the standard copper-nickel alloy (1938-1941 and 1946-present), and one World War II emergency issue struck in a silver alloy (1942-1945).
