History, Information, and Value of 1950 Jefferson Nickel

Value of 1950 Jefferson Nickel

The 1950 Jefferson Nickel varies between weak and strong strikes. Full Step designations are much more rare in this year than in most. This was the first year that a proof coin was produced since 1942. These proofs are satin in finish, rather than the prooflikes from years before. These coins, however, are very common and carry no value for precious metal.

The obverse text on the Jefferson Nickel reads “In God We Trust, Liberty” 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.
