• The first Jefferson Nickel was minted in 1938 to honor Thomas Jefferson.

Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence in 1776.

• He was also third President of the United States from 1801-1809. 

• As President, he secured the Louisiana Purchase and commissioned the historic Lewis and Clark Expedition to explore the West.

• The coin was designed by Felix Schlag, who won a national competition in 1938 and received a $1,000 prize.

• The obverse depicts a portrait of Jefferson based on a bust made in 1789 by French sculptor Jean-Antoine Houdon.

• The reverse shows Jefferson’s home at Monticello in Virginia.

• The first-year 1938 coin was made for only part of the year to replace the Buffalo Nickel.

• Almost all 1938 coins were released into circulation.

• This coin is in original Brilliant Uncirculated condition.

• It has been certified and graded as MS-60 or better by a team of independent coin experts.

• Coins are graded on a 70-point scale, and MS-60 is the standard Brilliant Uncirculated grade.

• The coin is encapsulated in a tamper-proof holder to protect its condition.

• Very few coins remain in such great condition.

• The coin is as fresh and beautiful as the day it was struck.

• First-year classic coins like this are always in demand.

• There is one coin;  it was struck in .750 copper and .250 nickel.
