Jefferson Nickels were made from 1938 to the present. Felix Schlag won a competition to design the Jefferson Nickel beating out 390 other artists.
Coins were struck in Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco. During World War II Jefferson Nickels were made of forty percent silver as nickel was a critical war material.
