About Liberty Nickel, With Cents [Type] V-Nickels

V nickels, also known as Liberty Head nickels, were designed by Charles E. Barber and were first released in 1883. The "V" nickname stems from the primary reverse device, which is a large Roman numeral V signifying the coin's face value of five cents. This feature caused some confusion early on when the V was the only indication of the coin?s denomination, with the word CENTS nowhere to be found on the first 5.5 million or so Liberty nickels struck in 1883. The United States Mint soon added the word CENTS to the reverse of the coin, in addition to the V, and the design remained virtually unchanged for the next 30 years.

The last V nickels were struck for circulation in 1912, though five rolled off the presses in 1913 and were later revealed to the public by a former US Mint employee. The 1913 Liberty Head nickel, which is not a regular-issue coin as it was never formally released into circulation, is now considered one of the rarest and most valuable coins in all of numismatics.

In addition to the 1913 Liberty Head nickel, there are a few key dates worth noting in the series. These include the 1885 and 1886 Liberty Head nickels, which are genuinely scarce in all grades. Also ranking among key dates is the 1912-S Liberty Head nickel, which is the lowest-mintage business strike issue in the series (with only 238,000 struck) and alongside the 1912-D Liberty Head nickel represents the only year in the series when mintmarked examples were made.

About CDN Prices

All CDN prices are based on proprietary market knowledge and technology developed by CDN Publishing, LLC.

CPG® prices represent retail levels. Collectors should refer to CPG values as a starting place for their negotiations, or auction bid reference.

Greysheet/Greensheet prices are wholesale market levels for collectible coins/paper money intended to indicate what a dealer, or wholesale, buyer would pay for the described item in the specified grade. Greysheet/Greensheet represent "sight-seen" values based on a buyer's in-hand review. The actual value can be more or less than this depending on factors including eye appeal and market timing.

Bluesheet (NGC & PCGS) prices represent the highest sight-unseen offers to buy on dealer networks like CDN Exchange. In many cases, there are no active sight-unseen buy offers, so CDN looks to the recent lowest market values for such an item. For this reason, Bluesheet values typically represent the floor of the market for the specified item. CDN only tracks Bluesheet on certain items.

CAC prices are for U.S. coins that meet the standards of the Certified Acceptance Corporation. You can learn more about CAC on their web site.

Price movement is indicated for price changes in the last 30 days.

The values listed are only indications. CDN Publishing, LLC does not buy or sell collectibles. Users are strongly encouraged to seek multiple sources of pricing before making a final determination of value. CDN Publishing is not responsible for typographical or database-related errors. Your use of this site indicates full acceptance of these terms.
