|The US nickel is a coin categorized under the circulation coinage type, meaning it was circulated from 1866 until 1883 and that some coins may still be in general circulation. The 1883 five-cent piece has the denomination of five cents and is also called shield nickel. The copper-nickel coin was created in 1883 in the United States Mint located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The US nickel is one of the first nickels ever minted by the United States of America and is to be rare and collectible. As the coin was produced in an official mint, the United States government also ensures its purity and weight. Designed by James B. Longacre, the obverse of the 1883 five-cent piece depicts a draped garland above a shield with a date below; the legend reads “In God We Trust.” The reverse of the copper-nickel coin has the coin’s value (five cents) circled with stars, while its legend reads “United States of America.” This 1883 US nickel weighs 0.18 oz.|
