2004-2005 Westward Journey Nickels


From 2004 to 2005, the United States Mint released the Westward Journey Nickel series to mark the bicentennial of the Louisiana Purchase and the Lewis and Clark expedition. The series consisted of four different reverse designs and a new obverse design.

Since the series was released for general circulation, it attracted attention from the general public and led to many pieces being saved from pocket change. Advanced collectors can pursue high grade certified examples.

Below is a selection of 2004-2005 Westward Journey Nickels, which have been certified by PCGS or NGC.
