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

Value of 1968-S Jefferson Nickel

Most of the 1968-S Jefferson Nickels are strong strikes that are very attractive. These coins still have problems, upon closer inspection, but will be good to add to any yearly collection. Each mintmark during this year was added by hand since they did not have a die with the mark already added.

The obverse text on the Jefferson Nickel reads “In God We Trust, Liberty, S (San Francisco 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.
