History, Information, and Value of 1957 Jefferson Nickel

Value of 1957 Jefferson Nickel

The 1957 Jefferson Nickel is typically very unattractive and lacks in bright white colors. There was a short-lived modification to this coin, being that the center star is much more bold than on older issues. The proof coins are easy to find in six Full Steps. If you are collecting by year, look for one of these coins with crisp details, which will be hard to find in MS rather than Proof.

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.
