Product Information

The Shield nickel is a type of five-cent coin that was minted in the United States from 1866 to 1883. It got its name from the design on the reverse side, which features a shield surrounded by stars. The Shield nickel was introduced after the Civil War to replace the previous design, the "half dime."

The obverse side of the Shield nickel carries the profile of Liberty, facing to the left, with the word "Liberty" inscribed above her head. The reverse side has a large shield in the center, with 13 stars surrounding it, representing the original 13 colonies. Above the shield is the phrase "United States of America" and below it, the denomination "5 Cents."

The Shield nickel faced some issues during its production. Due to its heavy weight and large diameter, it was prone to wearing down quickly. Additionally, the design of the shield caused difficulties in minting, resulting in some weak strikes and incomplete details.
