The US 5-cent piece first debuted from the United States Mint in 1792 and was put into regular production in 1794. Issued regularly through 1805, the original 5-cent pieces issued by the US Mint were known as Half Disme, an alternate spelling of half dime. It wasnt until 1866 that the US Mint issued a 5-cent piece with the size and weight specifications similar to the modern US nickel. Provident Metals is now happy to offer $200 Face Value batches of 35% Silver War Nickels for online purchasing.
When you purchase a $200 Face Value bag of 35% Silver War Nickels in this listing, you receive a bag with a total of 4,000 US nickels. The dates on these silver nickels range from 1942 to 1945, the only years in which the US Mint issued US nickels with silver content. The US nickels in this series feature 35% silver content with a remaining metallic composition of 56% copper and 9% manganese.
The obverse of the 35% Silver War Nickel features an image of President Thomas Jefferson. The left-profile bust of President Jefferson is based on a popular bust of the third president. Inscriptions on this face of the coin include In God We Trust, Liberty, and a date mark.
On the reverse face of the 35% Silver War Nickels, you will find an image of the facade of Monticello, the estate and home of Thomas Jefferson in Virginia. The inscriptions found on this side of the coin include E Pluribus Unum, Five Cents, Monticello, and United States of America.
The Jefferson Nickel design is the longest-running US nickel design in American history. From 1866 to 1938, the US nickel went through three different design elements. Since 1938, however, the series has remained stable with the Jefferson Nickel imagery. Just four years after the US Mint introduced the Jefferson Nickel, the coin became the first-ever silver nickel when the US Mint was forced to remove all nickel from its five-cent piece to reserve the metal for the war effort. The US Mint originally considered a 50% copper, 50% silver composition. However, to ensure the nickels still worked with vending machines and other slots across the country without opening the denomination up to rampant counterfeiting, the US Mint settled on the 56% copper, 35% silver, and 9% manganese composition.
