7 Valuable American Nickels in Circulation 📷📷📷

While these five-cent pieces are often overlooked in favor of their more glamorous counterparts like quarters and dimes, certain nickels in circulation hold significant value for collectors and enthusiasts 

The 1913 Liberty Head Nickel, also known as the “V” nickel due to the Roman numeral on its reverse, is one of the most famous and valuable nickels ever minted.

Over time, the coins passed through the hands of various collectors, including King Farouk of Egypt and Louis Eliasberg, whose collection was renowned for its completeness.

For instance, the Olsen specimen was featured on an episode of “Hawaii Five-O” and sold for over $3 million in 2010.


This nickel features a doubled image on the obverse (front) side, particularly noticeable in the date and the word “LIBERTY.”

The 1916 Doubled Die Obverse is exceptionally rare because few were struck before the error was corrected.

The 1942-P War Nickel is a notable coin from World War II when the U.S. Mint altered the composition of nickels to conserve nickel for the war effort.
