Silver 5 cent coins-1998-2006

Postby pjrsaultstemarie » Mon Jul 17, 2017 1:37 pm

Can any one tell me about the silver 5 cent coins issued 1998 t0 2006 ?

As I see there are 5 cent coins with mint marks
without mint marks
"P" marks of various sizes
silver 5 cent coins---all issued roughly during the same time

Very curious--- thank you for any help or reasons.

There were no silver 5 cents after 1920.

I'm assuming you mean Nickel 5c pieces (That's why they are known as Nickels)-
In reference to Nickels minted from 1998 to 2006

All coins minted from 1998 to 2006 with no mintmark were made from Cupro-Nickel.
Those minted from 1999 to 2006 with a "P" mint mark were made from Multi-Ply Plated steel.
Also 2006 was the first year the mint used the RCM logo that is still used today so there are
three different varieties of the 2006 Nickel.
There are also some with a "W" mint mark but these were for collector sets.
