20$ Nickel?- 05.27.05

2004-09_rev144.jpgLittle slow on the new money, i guess we’ve moved from quarters to special nickels? I flinched as i ran to the meter pumping it with coins before running off… and for a split second i noticed the shininess of a nickel and a boat on the back… I guess i was in too much of a hurry, but as i ran off i realized that the boat just didnt seem right.

So here’s what it was, and as i researched it on the web to see if i was nuts, the first link said it could be worth 20$ (assuming it was the S-type proof).

Incase any of you missed out too… last year started the Westward Journey Nickel Series, two a year for 2004 and 2005, and depictions of Monticello and Thomas Jefferson return to the nickel in 2006.. And this year’s two are pretty sweet and the first time in 67 years a new likeness of Jefferson. And the spring one has a BISON on it! So i’m on the lookout for that one now that i’m in the know. More images following…

The obverse design for the 2005 nickels will bear, for the first time in 67 years, a new likeness of America’s third president, Thomas Jefferson. The “Liberty” inscription on the coin is based upon Jefferson’s own handwriting. The design is based on the marble bust of Jefferson by the French sculptor Jean-Antoine Houdon, completed in 1789. The design was made age-appropriate to his presidency by utilizing later paintings by Gilbert Stuart and Rembrandt Peale.
The design was created by United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program artist, Joe Fitzgerald, of Silver Spring, Maryland. United States Mint sculptor-engraver Don Everhart sculpted the design.
