On this day in 1866, the first US nickel, called the “Shield Nickel” was minted.
The nickel is a US coin worth five cents. Twenty nickels make a dollar. One nickel can be written 5¢ or $0.05.
Nickels are made out of a nickel/copper alloy (a mixture of metals), 75 percent copper and 25 percent nickel. Nickels have a smooth edge; the nickel is 21.21 mm in diameter and is 1.95 mm thick.
The Jefferson nickel has been minted since 1938, when it replaced the Indian Head/Buffalo nickel. The final design was chosen from a contest; the winner was the artist Felix Schlag.
