Value of 1953 Jefferson Nickel

If you are looking for a high quality, white coin, then the 1953 Jefferson Nickel is not the coin to look for. These coins are often dirty and dark. Most coins are fully marked and will not receive the Full Step Designation. Look for already graded coins instead of trying to track down a high quality raw example. The proofs were very lustreous and had deep mirrors.

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.
