The Silver Half Dime (originally called the disme) is one of the first coins to be minted by the United States under the Coinage Act of 1792. Roughly half the size of a dime, these Post-Revolutionary coins were valued at five cents and minted until 1873, boasting various designs across their 100-year existence. Collectors can also choose from a selection of Liberty Head Nickels, often referred to as the V Nickel for the Roman numeral five adorning its reverse. Struck for circulation from 1883 - 1912, Liberty Heads were designed by United States Mint Chief Engraver Charles Barber and the coins were incredibly popular for 30 years, especially as the use of coin-operated machines began to blossom. In 1911, the US Mint started working to replace the Liberty Nickel design. Soon thereafter, the Buffalo (or Indian Head) Nickel was born, first produced in 1913. The Buffalo Nickel was produced by the United States Mint between 1913 - 1938. Designed by famed sculptor James

Earle Fraser, the obverse of each copper-nickel Indian Head Coin boasts the image of an unnamed American Indian, believed to be the combination of three chiefs from various tribes: Big Tree of the Kiowa, Iron Tail of the Lakota Sioux and Two Moons of the Cheyenne. Fraser’s reverse features the profile of an American Bison, believed to be Black Diamond, a 1,500-pound buffalo who spent his days at the Central Park Zoo.

Less than five years after the US Mint ceased production of the Buffalo Nickel, the onset of World War II initiated the rationing and repurposing of metals for the war effort. Nickel quickly became a hot commodity, and the Mint disclosed the new composition for War Nickels, minted from 1942-1945: 56 percent copper, 35 percent silver and 9 percent manganese. Wartime Nickels have grown increasingly popular among collectors due to a variety of distinctive design variations, while investors value its considerable silver content.
