Standard five-cent pieces were not made out of copper in 1946. Your piece could be one of 2 things: 1 - most likely it was plated by someone as a chemistry experiment. If its weight is the same as a standard nickel, that's a giveaway. In that case it's considered altered or damaged and is only worth face value. 2 - it was struck on a blank intended for another coin, such as a U.S. cent or foreign coin. In that case its weight and/or diameter may be a bit different. You'd need to have the coin examined by an expert to tell.
In circulated condition, it's still worth 5 cents.
Pennies in 1941 were mostly copper, not nickel, and they're worth about 5 cents.
None. Only nickels minted from 1942-1945 contain silver. The rest have a 25% nickel 75% copper composition.
5 cents. It's not copper, it's been plated or exposed to heat.
In average circulated condition, it's still worth 5 cents.
All copper-nickel half-dollars (1971-present) in circulated condition are only worth their face value.
By the 1950s, circulating British coinage no longer contained any silver (the last year was 1946). It's actually made of copper and nickel. The coin is worth a few pence at most.
The composition is .750 copper & .250 nickel
All other dates after 1946-1951 in mint uncirculated are worth 50 cents. So you got yourself a 1955 nickel worth .05 cents...
It depends if they are copper-nickel (post-1964) or 90% silver quarters (1964 and earlier). If they are copper-nickel, dated 1965 and earlier, they are only worth face, if they are silver, they are worth the silver content.
$1. It's not silver, it's copper-nickel.
75% copper 25% nickel
A 1902 Liberty Head nickel is common, in average condition value is a dollar or two for most coins. No US nickel was made of silver until late 1942 through 1945 these are the "War Nickels" and had 35% silver in them. From 1946 to date they are copper- nickel.
Anything minted in the 1970s is made of copper-nickel, not silver, and is only worth face value.
It is worth a nickel
right now the metal value in an ounce of nickel is only worth about $.50 cents thanks to the recent econemy. However, considering most 1 ounce copper coins sell for $1.75 each when they are only worth $.14 cents in copper, and nickel is worth over 3 times the value of copper, I would'nt be suprised if an ounce of pure nickel in a nice coin form sold for $5 or $6 an ounce.
Unless it's Proof or Uncirculated, just a dollar.
it is worth ten thousand in poor condition but good luck finding it they only made ten of them
