War nickel years

Bullion Shark is offering coin collectors a unique opportunity to own a complete set of Wartime nickels in a stunning display. The display case features an attractive, retro wartime image. All coins are in excellent uncirculated condition (MS63+). They have been minted at various US Mints between the years 1942 and 1945. 

Silver war nickels design

The Jefferson Nickle minted between 1942 and 1945 is sometimes known as the silver war nickel. This nickel coin was first minted in 1938 and was initially struck from 75% Copper and 25% Nickel. During the war, they were minted using Copper and silver. 

The silver war nickel’s design is the same as that of the Jefferson nickel. It has a bust of Jefferson on the obverse and Monticello, Jefferson’s home on the reverse. Silver war nickels can be distinguished from other nickels as they contain a ‘P’ ‘S’ or ‘D’ mint mark to indicate that they were struck in either Philadelphia, San Francisco, or Denver mints. Coins that don’t have mintmarks aren’t Silver War Nickels.

War nickel value

Silver war nickels are highly sought after and collectible. They are not only valuable but also have a fascinating historical significance. During wartime years, between 13,938,000 and 271,165,000 coins were minted annually. The value of the Silver War Nickel depends on its condition, year issued, and mintmarks. War nickels are valued at approximately $7 to $150 apiece. A 1945-P Doubled Die Reverse war nickel sold at auction for more than $5,500.
