Changing Mint Marks

 E-mail this product to a friend


On rare occasions, the U.S. Mint changes the position of a coin’s mint mark. This collection includes several such coins, with the original mint mark, plus the new mint mark. Otherwise, the designs remained unchanged.

• The original Jefferson Nickel featured the “D” (for Denver) or “S” (for San Francisco) mint mark on the reverse, to the right of Monticello.  In 1968, the position changed to the obverse, after the date.

• A third mint mark position was used from 1942-1945 for the war-time silver Jefferson Nickel.  The mint mark was on the reverse, above Monticello, to identify only the silver coins.

• The original 90% silver Roosevelt Dime had the “D” or “S” mint mark on the reverse, above the “E” in “ONE.”  In 1968, the position changed to the obverse, above the date. 

• Many of these coins are long out of issue and are seldom seen – especially in fascinating sets like this.
