One of the most collectable and affordable series of U.S. coins to collect is the Jefferson nickel. These nickels have been produced since 1938 and are still in circulation today. From the beginner to the advanced collector, Jefferson nickels have something for everyone. The beginning collector can start pulling their coins from pocket change and assembling their collection in a coin folder. The more experience collector can purchase uncirculated and proof examples from their favorite coin dealer. The only ones that you may have trouble finding in circulation are the 35% silver wartime alloy nickels produced from 1942 until 1945. Regardless of your level of collecting expertise, the Jefferson nickel is one of the most affordable coins that you can collect. The following two price guides are what you can expect to pay a dealer to purchase an example of a Jefferson nickel.
