Nickel Mintages

Indian Head, also known as Buffalo Nickels, were produced by the US Mint from 1913 until 1938. Mint marks are on the reverse of the coin. The nickels were minted in Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco. If the mint mark is missing from the coin, then it is assumed it was made in Philadelphia.

Profile Jefferson nickels were produced by the US Mint from 1938 until 2003. On nickles from 1938 through 1964 (except for 1942-45), mint marks can be found on the reverse in the right area between the rim and Monticello. No mint marks were struck on nickels in 1965, 1966 and 1967. From 1968 onward, mint marks were struck on the obverse directly below the date.

War Nickels, nickels that were minted from 1942-45, have 35% silver and the mint mark is struck directly on the reverse above the dome on Monticello.
