Liberty Nickels were made from 1883 to 1913. The first 1883 nickels were issued without the word CENTS on the coin. Con men gold plated the coins and passed them off as five dollar gold coins! Later in the year the word CENTS was added.
There are several scarce and rare date Liberty Nickels. The 1913 Liberty Nickel is one of the most famous of all U.S. rarities with only 5 coins known. All Liberty Nickels were made in Philadelphia until 1912 when coins were made at the Denver and San Francisco Mints.
