History, Information, and Value of 1982-P Jefferson Nickel

Value of 1982-P Jefferson Nickel

The 1982-P Jefferson Nickel features two different reverse designs. In the Reverse of 1977, the dies are somewhat weaker with much more shallow details. In the Reverse of 1982, the details are sharper and the dies functioned better than before. On the obverse of the coin, the words were pushed further away from the rim of the coin to allow for better spacing. This is a common coin, although it may be difficult to find in Full Step Designation.

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.
