Description
 
The Jefferson Nickel was first issued in 1938, featuring a portrait of President Thomas Jefferson. The reverse design portrays Monticello, Jefferson's Virginia estate.

The Jefferson Nickel was produced at three US Mints: Philadelphia and Denver (Uncirculated) and San Francisco (Proof). In 1954 the San Francisco Mint halted production, resuming in 1968.

The term "Proof" refers to a method of manufacture and NOT the condition of a coin. Proof coins can usually be distinguished by their sharpness of detail, high wire edge, and extremely brilliant - mirror like surface.

Proof coins are made from highly polished dies. The coinage blanks are also polished and cleaned. They are hand fed into a coinage press one at a time, with each blank receiving 2 or more strikes from the dies to bring up sharp - high relief details. It is done at slow speeds with extra pressure.

This proof 2011 Jefferson nickel is graded by ANACs as a PERFECT 70!
