The large "P" above the dome means it's a "war nickel" that is struck in 35% silver. The nickel was removed for the war effort and silver was used as a replacement, this was done from 1942 - 1945. Because it has a small amount of silver the value is about $1.00. NOTE: The 1942 war nickel is the first US coin to ever use a "P" Mintmark.

Prior to 1979/80, coins struck at Philadelphia didn't carry mint marks*, so your nickel comes from that mint. Please see the Related Question for value information. (*) So-called "war nickels" bore the P mint mark from 1942 to 1945. The first coin to regularly carry a P was the 1979 SBA dollar. The next year, all other denominations except the cent were also given P mint marks.

What is the worth of a 1942 P Jefferson nickel?

July 19, 2009 The 1942 Jefferson Nickel was struck at 3 US Mint facilities; Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco. The mintmark for these coins is found on the reverse [tails] side of the coin above the building. A "P" indicates the coin was struck at the Philadelphia mint. A "D" indicates the coin was struck at the Denver Mint. An "S" indicates the coin was struck at the San Francisco Mint. There were 2 varities of Jefferson nickels minted in 1942. The early 1942 coins were standard nickels containg 75% copper and 25% nickel, but the later 1942 nickels were 56% copper, 35% silver and 9%manganese. Much of the value of the silver nickel lies with the silver it contains. Coins with noticeable wear are valued by this silver content and are worth about 75 cents . The non-silver nickels with noticeable wear are worth 10 to 50 cents depending upon the actual condition of the coin.The values for better grade Philadelphia nickels are shown in the chart below.

Only the years 1942-43-44-45 have 35% silver content. you can identify the coins by a large mint mark P-D-S on the back of the coin above the dome of Monticello.

Why does your coin have neither a d nor a p?

This is the reason why there would be no "D" or "P" or "S" on a US coin. Although there have been 2 exceptions, generally speaking, the Philadelphia Mint did not use a mint mark prior to 1980. The most notable exception was during World War 2 when silver was used in the Jefferson Nickel from late 1942 through 1945 and the mint marks appeared as large letters over Monticello on the reverse [tails] side of the coin. This was the first time the Philadelph Mint used the letter "P" for its mint mark. The second exception was in 1979 when the letter "P" again was used to identify the Philadelphia Mint on the Susan B. Anthony Dollar. Beginning in 1980 all coins minted at Philadelphia displayed the letter "P" with the exception of the Lincoln Cent. It is the only coin struck at Philadelphi that does not have a mint mark.


What is the value of a 1941 p nickel the mintmark is above the monticello building?

I don't know the value which depends on the condition but it is normal for the mint mark to be there during that time period.CorrectionPlease check the coin's date again. Mint marks on Jefferson nickels were above the dome of Monticello only during the war years 1942-1945, when the coin's composition was changed to a silver-copper-manganese alloy due to wartime nickel shortages. In addition, those were the only years that a P mint mark was used on the back of the coin. Nickels didn't use the P mint mark again until 1980, and then it was on the front of the coin.
