1897 Liberty Nickel

The 1897 Liberty Nickel had a mintage of just 20,424,797. The composition of these coins is copper/nickel. The diameter is 21.2mm. The 1897 Liberty Nickel was minted in Philadelphia, and is otherwise known as a "V" Nickel.

Did you know: In 1897 M.H. Cannon became the first U.S. State Senator in Utah, and the first ship carrying gold from the Yukon arrived in Seattle. These 1897 Liberty Nickels probably traded a lot of hands back in those days.
