2009 Jefferson Nickel

Along with the 2009 Roosevelt Dime, the US Mint has announced the official end of production for the 2009 Jefferson Nickel. While the attention of many collectors may be on the new 2009 Lincoln Cent designs or the one year District of Columbia and US Territories Quarters Program, it might be a good time to check out the nickel.

As a result of the recession, more old coinage has re-entered circulation, reducing the need for new coins. Apparently this glut of old coinage is so severe that the US Mint is willing to end production of two denominations for the remainder of the year.

The nickel in particular has very low mintages and seems destined to become a minor rarity. To date, I have not seen one report of anyone having a 2009 Jefferson Nickel in hand. Since production has ended for the coin, we already have an idea of the final mintages, which are shown below.

2009 Jefferson Nickel Mintage

2009-P Jefferson Nickel 39,840,000
2009-D Jefferson Nickel 39,360,000
Total 79,200,000

What’s happened to the 2009 D Jefferson business strikes? I can’t find one anywhere. eBay has plenty of 2009 P and S (Proof) coins for auction but no D’s. I need one to add to my collection.

THE ROLL IS AN UNCIRCULATED ROLL OF 25 VERY SCARCEONLY 39.360.000 MADE VERY VERY LOW MINTAGE

Denver most likely mixing nickels and or stockpiling many, denver struck an additional several million in july boosting the production number to 46.8 million…
August most likely to see Philly producing same alternating back and forth through december for estimated on Denver to be about 62 million and philly around 55 million.. Estimates only and by what is being produced along with what info that is available.. Still very desirable coins that will demand premiums but not as high as expected. Rolls will go philly 35 per roll and denver at 55-60 only due to nice specimines hard to find…

After I read your article I went to a bank and got two rolls of nickels.

1 2009P
1 1940P
1 1954P
1 1954D.

Not bad for the first try. Ill go get some more rolls tomorrow.

What better way for the criminal (tas cheat) Sec of the Treasury to make millions than to horde all the 2009 D nickels and dump them for $75+ per roll in the near future?
