History, Information, and Value of 1951-D Jefferson Nickel

Value of 1951-D Jefferson Nickel

The 1951-D Jefferson Nickel is marked by the poor quality of the strikes. Seldom did a coin come through the hands of a collector that was in exceptional condition. These coins are often dull and worn with a large lack of luster. To find a coin with five full steps, you stand a 1 in 30 chance when going through Mint State coins. The 6 Full Step Designation should be considered rare.

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.
