The Liberty Head Nickel Legacy (1883-1912)
The Liberty Head Nickel, also known as the "V" Nickel due to the large Roman numeral "V" (for five) on its reverse, was introduced in 1883 as a successor to the Shield Nickel. Designed by Charles E. Barber, the Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, this remarkable coin showcases Lady Liberty in all her glory, a symbol of freedom and opportunity for more than three decades.
