Description Description

Upon entering WWII after Pearl Harbor in 1941, Americans showed their resilience by planting Victory gardens, buying war bonds and running defense plants at full throttle. Even the U.S. Mint did its part with some very special silver coins. In October 1942, the U.S. Mint introduced a special wartime composition for Jefferson nickels. This alloy of 35% silver, 56% copper, and 9% manganese allowed stockpiles of nickel to be conserved for critical military needs. These were the first five-cent coins to contain silver since the half-dime in 1873. Now a complete mintmark set featuring these rare coins can be yours with the U.S. World War II Silver Nickel Coin Set, an exclusive presentation available only from The Bradford Exchange Mint.

To differentiate these nickels from the pre-war versions, oversized mintmarks were set on the reverse sides, above Jefferson’s home, Monticello. This includes an “S” for San Francisco, a “D” for Denver, and a “P” for Philadelphia - the first time the "P" mintmark appeared on any U.S. coin. These 11 historic wartime nickels span the years of 1942 through 1945 (the prewar alloy returned for the 1946 issues) and are increasingly scarce. Yours arrive in Very Fine condition, handsomely presented in the included custom, deluxe folio. The folio secures your coins and brims with information about your vintage nickels and their times. This important coin collectible set is expected to draw tremendous demand from collectors, so don't wait to secure yours. Order now!
