Despite the metal nickel being used in various coins, the name “Nickel” became primarily associated with five cent coins. Nickels featuring Liberty’s profile were produced from 1883-1912. Five additional legendary nickels are known to have been produced in 1913. Nickels featured an “Indian Head” and Buffalo from 13-13-1938. Since then, President Thomas Jefferson has been showcased on nickel designs. Though most nickels have been composed of nickel and other metals, some were made out of silver from 1942-1945.
