History, Information, and Value of 1980-P Jefferson Nickel

Value of 1980-P Jefferson Nickel

The 1980-P Jefferson Nickel is a nice coin, all in all. However, the reverse was modified years before, so it often has a weak reverse. The modified reverse would only continue until 1982, when it would receive a sharper, and clearer, update. This date also marks the second time on the nickel that the Philadelphia mintmark has appears. The only other time was during the War Nickel Series.

The obverse text on the Jefferson Nickel reads “In God We Trust, Liberty, P (Philadelphia 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.
