Officially a 'Liberty Five Cent', but usually called a 'V nickel' by collectors. They were minted from 1883 to 1912. You may have seen some headlines a few months ago about a multi-million nickel. That was one of the five minted with this design in 1913. Unfortunately, there were a few more than that (21 million) minted in 1904, so yours is worth about $1.25 if well-worn or maybe $60 if uncirculated.

The front has a picture of Miss Liberty, facing left and surrounded by 13 stars. The back has the Roman numeral "V" (= 5) surrounded by a wreath, and the words UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and CENTS around the coin's border.

Many of the coins are valued in price close to $15. The exact amount you can expect for the coin will depend upon its condition.

The obverse shows a liberty head with crown and 13 stars around the edges. The reverse shows a Roman Numeral 5 with wreath around it and CENTS below. The date is on the front below the head and the Words United States of America are around the wreath on the back.
