WWII Silver Nickel Year Set

 E-mail this product to a friend


• During World War II, nickel was a valuable component in guns, tanks, and airplanes.

• To help the war effort, the U.S. Mint eliminated nickel from the 5¢ Nickel coins.  Instead, it struck the Nickel in a new allay that includes 35% silver. 

Made from 1942 until the war ended in 1945, these were “emergency” coins and the first and only Silver Nickels in U.S. history. 

• The general design was unchanged: Thomas Jefferson on he obverse and Monticello on the reverse.

• This complete year set includes one coin from each of the four years of issue: 1962, 1943, 1944, and 1945.

• In order to identify the Silver Nickels from the earlier coins made with nickel, the U.S. Mint included a prominent mint mark on the reverse of each coin, above the dome of Monticello.  These are the only coins with the mint mark in this position.

• Each coin is more than 65 year old and has been out of circulation for generations.
