Silver War Nickels


During three years of the series, the Jefferson Nickel was struck in a composition of 56% copper, 35% silver, and 9% manganese. Interestingly, the new composition eliminated nickel.

The change was made in order to preserve copper and nickel for the war effort. The silver war nickels are identified by the large sized mint mark on the reverse of the coin above Monticello.
