US Coins

nickelThe nickel is a US coin worth five cents. Twenty nickels make a dollar. One nickel can be written 5¢ or $0.05.

Nickels are made out of a nickel/copper alloy (a mixture of metals), 75 percent copper and 25 percent nickel. Nickels have a smooth edge; the nickel is 21.21 mm in diameter and is 1.95 mm thick.

The Jefferson nickel has been minted since 1938, when it replaced the Indian Head/Buffalo nickel. The final design was chosen from a contest; the winner was the artist Felix Schlag.

NICKELS IN CIRCULATION:
nickel
The front (obverse) of the nickel pictures a left-facing profile of Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the United States of America and the principal author of the Declaration of Independence.

The front reads, "IN GOD WE TRUST," "LIBERTY," and the year the coin was minted. The small initial after the date is the mint mark, denoting the location of the US mint that produced the coin (D means Denver, Colorado, S means San Francisco, California, and P means Philadelphia, Pennsylvania).

nickel reverse
The back (reverse) of the nickel pictures Monticello, Jefferson's house (which was designed by Jefferson himself), located in Virginia, USA.

The back reads, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (which means, "Out of many, one"), "MONTICELLO," "FIVE CENTS," and "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA."
