5 Cent Coins Collecting US coins is fun! Originally called half dimes or small cents, five cent coins or nickels are very popular collectible coins, especially with new numismatists (coin collectors)! It is relatively easy to assemble a nickel coin collection by date and mint marks as old nickels are inexpensive and plentiful. US nickels issued over the years include:

Liberty Head Nickels (V Nickel) 1883-1913
Indian Head (Buffalo Nickels) 1913-1938
Jefferson Nickels 1938 to present (also called Thomas Jefferson nickel)
