The Westward Nickel Collection began in 2004 in commemoration of the Louisiana Purchase and the Lewis and Clark expedition. The President enacted to modify the Jefferson nickel to reflect images reminiscent of the historic expedition into the Louisiana Territory. The U.S. Mint's Westward Journey Nickel Series began in 2004 with the Peace Medal nickel and followed by the Keelboatnickel. In 2005 the American Bison and the Ocean in View nickels were the next 2 released in the series. As part of the 2005 release, the U.S. changed the image of Thomas Jefferson. The new coin features the right side of Jefferson's face, instead of the frontal view seen for 67 years. Also, the word "Liberty" is shown, engraved in Jefferson's own handwriting.

As part of the Westward Nickel program the United States Mint released a small number of Government wrapped Philadelphia (P mint) and Denver (D mint) Roll pairs. Their colorful wrapper and the presence of the United States Mint logo easily distinguish these rolls. These Government rolls each contain 40 of the Philadelphia and Denver Mint nickels before they were released for circulation, arriving to you in uncirculated condition. They are widely collected for their extremely limited production features.
