1945-S JEFFERSON SILVER WAR NICKEL GEM UNC

Print this page

1945 was the last year that Jefferson nickels were struck in the 56% copper, 35% silver, 9% manganese composition that was first used in 1942. With the war ending in 1945 and the urgent need for nickel no longer present, the United States would wrap up use of the special five-cent coin composition at the end of the year. While most 1945 Jefferson nickels are unremarkable in terms of overall rarity (more than 200 million were made) there was a doubled-die variety made that year.
