That's a myth -- they are NOT being recalled.

Why was, and who recalled the 2005 nickel?

The 2005 nickel with a buffalo on the reverse is worth exactly 5 cents.

It's just a nickel, spend it.

No. This is a rumor that has crossed the country but there is no truth in it. While the buffalo is clearly male, there is very little difference in the buffalo on the 2005 buffalo from the buffalo on the Buffalo nickel produced from 1913 through 1938. Click on the link named "BUFFALO NICKEL" in the "RELATED LINKS" at the lower left corner of this box to see for yourself. Click on the link named "2005 Buffalo" to see the 2005 nickel.

It's just a nickel, millions are still in circulation, spend it.

No 2005 Bison Reverse nickels were struck in silver.

The 2005 Jefferson nickel with a buffalo on the reverse was struck in enormous numbers. Any that you find in change will only be worth 5 cents.

If the intended question is about its value, it's worth 5 cents.

In average condition, both coins are only worth their face value.

Five cents, if you found it in change. ALL buffalo nickels, original (1913-1938) and modern (2005) are anatomically correct.

It's not rare, millions are still in circulation today spend it.

Nope. It's only worth face value. These are very very common coins.

Buffalo nickels were minted between 1913 and 1938. The coin you are asking about is a Jefferson nickel with a bison reverse, part of the Westward Journey commemoratives. They are not rare and are worth face value.

The coin is still in circulation today and is face value.

It's not rare, millions are still in circulation today spend it.

It's actually called a Bison Reverse. The plating was NOT done by the U.S. Mint and it has no collectible value. It's just a nickel.

Just found one of these nickesl and happenned to notice this myself as well. I just googled it to see if it was worth anything and saw a few articles about what your saying. Everything I've read has said that is false, that was a rumor, the nickels aren't being recalled.

It's not rare, millions are still in circulation today, just spend it.

There's no such thing as a buffalo HEAD nickel. They all show the full buffalo, and the ones issued in 2005 are, as the saying goes, "anatomically correct". Hundreds of millions were struck so if you found it in change it's only worth face value.

If you found it in change, it's only worth face value. Almost all of these coins were snapped up as soon as they entered circulation. FWIW the US has never minted a "buffalo head" nickel. The special Lewis and Clark commemorative nickels minted in 2005 are simply "buffalo" nickels because they show the entire animal.

If you got it in change, just spend it because it is only worth face value.
