History, Information, and Value of 1968-D Jefferson Nickel

Value of 1968-D Jefferson Nickel

In yet another odd twist by the United States Mint, the year 1968 featured the 1968-D Jefferson Nickel and the 1968-S Jefferson Nickel, with none being produced at Philadelphia. This coin will be difficulat to find with five full steps, and impossible to find with six. But, find yourself a nice white coin to compliment the collection.

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.
