Westward Journey Nickel Series


The first U.S. Nickel was minted on this day in 1866. To commemorate the bicentennials of the Louisiana Purchase and the Lewis and Clark expedition, the U.S. Mint has modified the nickel to reflect these national milestones. This page has images of the 2005 obverse design done by President Jefferson with the word "Liberty" in his own handwriting. The 2005 Spring reverse design will feature the American bison. The Summer/Fall reverse design will contain a scene of the Pacific with the inscription "Ocean in view! O! The joy!" Just studying the common nickel gives students so much to learn and explore about the Nation's history. While on this site, look in the left hand menu for "h.i.p. pocket change," the U.S. Mint's section for the younger student.
