Jefferson Nickels

United States Jefferson Nickel
After the Indian head or Buffalo nickel, came the design we still have today, the Jefferson nickel. There was a design competition held with a prize of $1000. There were 390 artists competing to get their art on a United States coin. This would look good on any artist’s resume. The winning design with Thomas Jefferson’s likeness was sculpted by Felix Schlag. It really established having a portrait on a coin as opposed to symbolic designs that were used for many decades.
