History, Information, and Value of 1976 Jefferson Nickel

Value of 1976 Jefferson Nickel

While these 1976 Jefferson Nickels are actually common, it will be extremely difficult to find a coin that has the full range of steps. Out of 1,000 gem coins, you are likely to find 1 with five full steps. The six full step coins are so scarce that you may not find any. This coin often lack detail in the center, which is an oddity for the more modern struck coins.

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.
