Rare Nickel

by Saundra Hall
(Dunbar, WV US)

Question: I have a 2005 nickel, the face of the president is not centered, could this be a rare nickel? thanks


My Answer: Saundra, the nickel you describe is part of the "Westward Journey" Nickel Series which were minted from 2004-2006 to commemorate the bicentennial of the Louisiana Purchase and the journey of Lewis and Clark to explore the new territory.

Jefferson got a whole new look for the series. You can read more about this new nickel series here.

Just scroll down a ways and you will see the nickel you describe along with the other nickels in the series.

2005 Nickel
by: Saundra

Do you think I should try to sell this nickel? thanks

Jan 23, 2011
Let me try again.
by: Eva - Moderator

Saundra, I don't think I made my explanation clear enough in my original answer.

The coin you describe is not a rare coin. All of the nickels minted in 2005 had this portrait of Jefferson's profile off to the left side.

Your nickel is worth face value.

2004 Nickel
by: Don

I have a 2004 Lousiana Purchase nickel. I was reading that if you hold the nickel with jefferson facing upright and towards you. Holding the nickel on the left and right side and flipping it like a calender. If the "shaking hands" are upright, where the jefferson is also upright on the other side. Meaning the reverse was stamped upside down. That this is considered a "coin turn" nickel and its rare and worth more? I couldnt find much else on this but im curious if i have a rare coin.

Coin Alignment
by: Eva - Moderator

Don, most U.S. coins were minted with what is referred to as "coin alignment". If flipped over from top to bottom, the reverse remains upright in relation to the obverse. When flipped from side-to-side, the reverse is upside down in relation to the obverse.

From your description, it sounds like you have a normal U.S. 2004 Nickel. 180 degree rotation errors are very rare.

2004 Louisianna Purchase Nickel 180 degree rotation?
by: Anonymous

I found a 2004 Louisianna Purchase nickel that I think is printed with 180 degree rotation. It was marked with a masking tape and a number which made me really look at it.

If I hold the nickel in the upward position facing me and rotate it left to right/right to left by holding it in the middle, the opposite side facing me is in the upward postion. If I hold it on the left/right sides and flip it up and over the reverse side is upside down.

Is this the rare coin with 180 degree rotation? And if so, how do I cash it in without getting ripped off? Any help given would be great.

2005 nickel
by: Jayson

My little brother came to me and said he found a nickel, I took a look at it and I've never seen anything like it. It is a 2005 nickel, it has the off centered president, wich I've seen before on the 2005 nickels but the strange part is on the back of the nickel is a buffalo, the buffalo almost looks like a different color than the other nickels I have. I've tried to wash it to see if it was just a prank but it wouldn't come off.. it looks like a holographic color and I have taken a few photos, is it a rare nickel or a prank?

Unusual 2013 D Nickel
by: Anonymous

I have come across a 2013 D Nickel that is strange to me in three ways. First, the coin is unusually shiny. Much more so than the 2014 Nickels. Like a mirror image. Second, next to the other Nickels made in 2013 and 2014 this one is a touch wider in its depth. The third reason is this Nickel, when placed with others from 2013 and 2014 makes a distinctly different sound than the others do when tapping together. I was wondering if this is a find or not? Thanks!

wierd nickel
by: Sandy

Hello, I have a 2004 nickel, can't tell if the mint mark is a D or P. Anyways, The it looks as if the front has a crack like look across Jeffersons face from the left through his face and under the letters liberty. The top half looks 3D and the bottom half looks normal but then near the bottom edge looks dented, is it worth some type of value besides face value?

holographic nickel backs
by: Ken

there was a series of 2005 nickels 4 of them to be exact that was part of set regular nickel, one with a painted back, a holographic and a gold toned nickel. its was part of commemorative series. put out by the u.s mint. i am guessing if you found them loose then some one opened them up for what ever reasons as far as value i couldn't say but considering it is loose and not in its original packaging any value just depreciated out the window.

six coin set of buffalo nickels. all out of alignment
by: Steve

I have a sealed set of six buffalo nickels. Five of them are clearly out of alignment. The sixth one may be as well. If it is, it's not by very much. I've been collecting for a couple of years now, so I know that these coins are clearly out of alignment. The degree of rotation varies from coin to coin. It looks to me that a couple of them could be as much as 30-45 degrees. It looks like someone deliberately put this set together based on them being of this character. I have never sold any of my coins as of yet, but my current health situation could use some help. Can you help me?

have found a "five cent" piece that has symbol of handshake and double (what looks like) crossed axes on one side and what looks like a resemblance of Thomas Jefferson on the other side. Also reads "United States of ??? on face side and a # that might be 1603 or 1803 on it. Can anyone tell me where this coin might be from?

Mine has a 180 degree rotation and in the background there is a picture of Jeff Gordon's race car. How common are these?
