**Interesting Facts About Nickels**

People often have specific questions about nickels. Here are some of the most common questions people ask about nickels.

**Who Is On The Nickel Coin?**

Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the United States, is the person whose image is on the heads (obverse) side of the nickel coin. The United States Mint has struck nickels featuring his portrait since 1938. Since modern-day nickels feature Jefferson’s face, they are commonly referred to as Jefferson nickels.

The tails side (reverse) of the coin shows the Monticello plantation house, which was Jefferson’s home in Virginia. The house has been on the back of the nickel since 1938 except for a brief period in 2004 and 2005. In 2004 and 2005, the back of the nickel featured designs such as the Indian Peace Metal to celebrate the bicentennial of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Monticello is a National Historic Monument and the only private home in the USA that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

**What Is The Value of a Nickel?**

A nickel has two potential values: its face value and its value to a coin collector. As you probably know, every nickel in circulation has a face value of five cents. You might not know that the value of nickels can be greater than their face value due to silver content, rarity, and errors.

Besides the modern-day Jefferson Nickels, five other types of nickels have been issued throughout the history of the United States. These five different types of nickels are the Silver Half Disme (half dime), the Copper-Nickel cent, the Shield Nickel, the Liberty Head or “V” Nickel, and the Buffalo Nickel (also called an Indian Head Nickel).

The collectible value of nickels varies by the type of nickel, the issue date, mint mark, error coins, rarity, and silver content. Below is a breakdown of coin values for the six different nickels that have been issued in the United States.

- Silver Half Dime (Silver Half Disme): The collectible value of these nickels ranges from $16 to $250,000. The $250,000 value refers to an uncirculated 1802 Draped Bust Half Dime.
- Copper-Nickel Cent: $15 to $600.
- Shield Nickel: $25 to $350. The top value of $350 is for an uncirculated 1871 Shield Nickel.
- Liberty Head or “V” Nickel: $2 to $1,700. The most valuable V Nickel is an uncirculated 1885 “V” Nickel.
- Buffalo Nickel (Indian Head Nickel): $1 to $2,650. The $2,650 value is for an uncirculated 1926 S Buffalo Nickel.
- Jefferson Nickel: $0.05 to $10. While many of these modern-day coins are only worth 5 cents, some are worth more. The most valuable of these is an uncirculated 1951 Jefferson Nickel (D) is worth $10. Other valuable nickels from this period are the so-called Silver War Nickels, minted between 1942 and 1945.

**How Much Does a Nickel Weigh?**

All modern-day nickels weigh precisely 5 grams, which equals 0.17637 ounces.

**What Are The Dimensions of a Nickel Coin?**

A nickel coin has a diameter of 0.835 inches (17.91 millimeters) and a thickness of 0.07677 inches (1.95 millimeters).

**How Thick Is A Nickel?**

Modern-day nickels are 1.95 mm thick, which is equal to 0.07677 inches.

**What Is The Volume of a Nickel?**

The volume of a single dime is 0.04 cubic inches, which is equivalent to 0.69 cubic centimeters.

**What Are Nickels Made Of?**

Nickels are primarily copper but also contain nickel. To be precise, modern-day nickels are 75% copper and 25% nickel. It wasn’t always this way, though! Between 1942 and 1945, nickels were 35% silver, 56% copper, and 9% manganese.

In one roll of modern nickels, there are 150 grams of copper and 50 grams of nickel. If you prefer to work in ounces, that’s 5.29 ounces of copper and 1.76 ounces of nickel.

What hasn’t changed is that each nickel is still worth its face value of precisely 5 cents.

**Are Nickels Magnetic?**

No, nickels are not magnetic even though they are made from a nickel-copper alloy.

Nickel-copper alloys only become magnetic when the Nickel content is greater than 56%. Since nickels only contain 25% nickel, they are not magnetic.

**Do Nickels Have Ridges?**

Unlike dimes and quarters, nickels do not have ridges on the coin’s rims. Instead, the edges of nickels are smooth. Nickels do not have ridges because relatively few silver nickels are still in circulation, unlike silver dimes and quarters.

Ridges, also called grooves or reeded edges, are a physical security feature to prevent counterfeiting and coin clipping. When coins were made from silver, the reeded ridges helped discourage coin clipping, a form of fraud.

What is coin clipping, and how do ridges deter this fraudulent practice? Imagine a bucket full of silver coins such as silver dimes. While each dime is worth 10 cents, the silver they are made out of is also valuable.

By shaving off a small amount of the silver from each coin in the bucket, a scammer could amass a sizeable amount of valuable silver to sell for scrap. The preferred target of silver scrapers has always been the edges of coins because it is difficult to detect visually in the absence of ridges. It is much easier, in comparison, to notice if the face or back of a coin has been scraped. We would be much more likely to see if Franklin D. Roosevelt’s face had been defaced than the edge of the dime!

**How Many Nickels Are In a Roll?**

There are 40 nickels in one roll of nickels. That means that the total value of all the nickels in a roll is two dollars.

Nickel rolls came into widespread use in the early 20th century thanks to the invention of the automatic coin wrapping machine in 1913. While the coin rolls were initially adopted to aid banks and stores in keeping track of their coin inventory, they are now affordable for personal use. Today, you can buy a high-quality, low-cost coin rolling machine to wrap the spare change in your pocket or purse.

While rolls of coins that come straight from the mint’s distribution center are new and ‘uncirculated,’ most nickels in circulation are not new as they last for decades. Coin roll hunters look for rare coins, error coins, and coins with a melt value that’s more than their face value. In coin roll hunting, the strategy is to go through a large number of coins to maximize the chance of finding a type of coin that is valuable to collectors. The easiest way to get your hands on lots of nickels is by getting rolls of nickels from a bank teller, laundromat, or directly from the mint.

**How Much Does a Roll of Nickels Weigh?**

A roll of nickels weighs 200 grams, which equals 0.4409 pounds.

All modern-day nickels weigh precisely 5 grams, which equals 0.17637 ounces. That means that a roll of 40 nickels ($2) weighs 200 grams, equal to 7.0548 ounces, plus the negligible weight of the paper wrapper itself. In terms of pounds, one roll of nickels weighs 0.4409 pounds.

If you need to know the roll’s total weight, including the paper coin wrapper, check with the manufacturer of the paper wrappers or weigh the empty coin wrapper yourself. That’s because the weight of a paper roll varies by manufacturer.

While a coin wrapper’s weight might vary, a nickel never nickel does! It’s always 5 grams.
