How much is an 1803 commemorative nickel that's upside-down on the back with the front side upright when you do a coin turn?
Assuming you're referring to one of the newly issued nickels .... If you are flipping it top-to-bottom (as opposed to side-to-side), then you have a very rare rotated reverse error. If certified, these can sell for over $100 However AFAIK there are no reports of rotated die 2004 nickels. The best thing to do is to compare the turn with other coins from your pocket change. If your nickel does not have the same orientation as the others when flipped the same way, you've make quite a profit. If the coins are all the same orientation, you're five cents richer.
There is no such thing as an 1803 U.S. nickel. You have a Lewis & Clark commemorative nickel that was minted in 2004. Turn it over and look next to Jefferson's portrait. These are worth exactly 5 cents. there's no such thing as a 1803 nickel the date of when the nickel is made is on the front next to Jefferson's portrait and also the us mint did not start making nickels until 1866
A billion dollars considering that such a coin doesn't and can't exist. US nickels were first minted in 1866, prior to that the 5 cent piece was a tiny silver coin called the half dime. You probably have a Louisiana Purchase commemorative nickel. If you turn it over, you'll find the minting date - 2004 - is on the front of the coin.
I have silver coin with 13 stars on the front with women's head facing left dated 1900 Back has US.and wheat wreath What is it?
The obverse (front) of a US nickel has the portrait of Thomas Jefferson. The reverse (back) of the coin for most years has an image of Jefferson's home called Monticello. The only exceptions were 2004 and 2005 when special reverse designs were used to honor the 200th anniversary of the Lewis and Clark expedition.
Please check again and post a new question: > Buffalo nickels were made from 1913 to 1938. An 1899 nickel would have a picture of Miss Liberty on the front and the Roman numeral V (= 5) on the back. > All nickels except those from WWII (1942-45) are made of copper-nickel, not silver. > There's no coin called a "buffalo head" nickel. The names are either an Indian Head nickel or a buffalo nickel.
Be sure you're clear about what it means for the back of a coin to be "upside down". ALL U.S. coins minted since the 19th century have the front and back oriented 180º to each other so that the sides point oppositely when a coin is flipped side to side like the page of a book. Many other countries (Canada, UK, EU) use what's called "medal rotation" where both sides point the same way. Compare…
The U.S. didn't make a commemorative dollar coin honoring Betsy Ross in 1979. If the reverse side of the coin has a picture of an eagle landing on the moon and the words ONE DOLLAR at the bottom, the picture on the front is of Susan B. Anthony, not Betsy Ross, and the coin is made of copper nickel, not silver. If it's anything else, you have a privately issued piece whose value will depend…
Since 1938 the US nickel (5¢ piece) has carried various images of President Thomas Jefferson on the front. The back has shown a front view of his home, Monticello, for all years of issue except 2004 and 2005 when it depected various scenes honoring the Lewis and Clark expedition which Jefferson championed.
Buffalo nickels* only have the mint mark on the back. You're probably seeing the designer's monogram on the front of the coin. In any case, a 1920-S nickel is worth about $4 in very worn condition. However, values go up steeply from there. In slightly worn condition, this coin might retail for as much as $100. (*) FWIW, the coin is a NICKEL rather than "nickle"
