|The Jefferson Nickel was first struck in 1938, and millions have since been made. In spite of its numbers, the 1941 Jefferson Nickel is considered by many US coin collectors to be an essential piece of any collection. On the obverse side of the copper and nickel coin, there is a bust of Jefferson looking left, surrounded on the left by the words “IN GOD WE TRUST.” To the right of the 1941 Jefferson Nickel is the word “LIBERTY” followed by the minting year. On the reverse side of this copper and nickel coin is a relief of Jefferson’s house with the words “MONTICELLO” and, beneath that, “FIVE CENTS.” The words “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” are placed around the bottom of the coin. The top of the reverse of the 1941 Jefferson Nickel bears the words “E. PLURIBUS UNUM” which roughly translates to “Out of many, one.” The Jefferson Nickel has an outside diameter of 0.83 inches (21.2 mm) and weighs 0.2 oz (5 g).|
