History, Information, and Value of 1950-D Jefferson Nickel

Value of 1950-D Jefferson Nickel

The 1950-D Jefferson Nickel is an odd coin indeed, due to the small mintage figures and mass hoarding. There were a meer 2,000,000 coins produced, one of the smaller productions of the Jefferson Series. These coins were hoarded upon release, so Mint State examples are very plentiful. However, circulated examples of this coin are often rare and unseen. Although most collectors will try to sell this Mint State coin for a premium, it is very common and easy to get ahold of.

The obverse text on the Jefferson Nickel reads “In God We Trust, Liberty, D (Denver Mint)” and the reverse text reads “E Pluribus Unum, Monticello, Five Cents, 5, United States of America.” The obverse of the coin has a bust of President Thomas Jefferson facing the left and the reverse depicts the full Monticello house built by Jefferson. Most Jefferson Nickel Five Cent pieces are worth face value. However, some of the coins have silver content or are less common. These coins may be worth slightly more. Any local coin dealer will try to buy these coins for face value, but our experts will make you an offer based on current auction values.
