WWII Workhorse Coins

 E-mail this product to a friend

This collection features three historic American coins that were used on a daily basis by American's during WWII.  They were the “workhorse” coins of the era and symbolize the determination of the American people.

• To save valuable copper for the war effort, the U.S. Mint made Lincoln Pennies with steel instead of copper in 1943.  This was a one-year-only coin type and the first and only steel coin in U.S. history.

• Another special World War II coin was the Silver Nickel.  Nickel was a valuable component in guns, tanks, and airplanes, so the U.S. Mint made Nickels in a new alloy that included 35% silver.

• Made only from 1942 to 1945, this “emergency” coin was the first and only Silver Nickel in U.S. history.

• The collection also includes the historic 90% silver Mercury Silver Dime from the World War II era. 

• These coins were last made over 65 years ago, and they quickly disappeared from circulation after the war ended.  Each is a sought-after collector’s item in its own right, and together they make a superb collection dating to World War II.
