The second design featured on the United States five-cent piece was the Liberty Head design. Introduced by the US Mint in 1883, the Liberty Head V Nickel was produced by the United States Mint from 1883 to 1912. In the initial months of production, the Liberty Head Nickel came with no inscription of the word CENTS to accompany the Roman numeral V. Now, 1883 Liberty Head V Nickels are available to you for purchase online from in certified condition.

Prior to the release of the US Nickel in 1866, the United States Mint had previously issued silver coins known as Half Dimes as early as the 1790s when the United States Mint opened. The Half Dime had the same face value as the US Nickel, but its silver content made the coin’s metallic value much higher than its assigned face value.

During the chaos of the Civil War, the Half Dime disappeared from circulation and the production of new five-cent pieces did not resume until 1866. Industrialist Joseph Wharton advocated for the use of nickel in the new five-cent pieces, though he had a personal interest as he controlled countless nickel mining operations across the country. In 1866, the first US Nickel was released. In 1883, that troublesome first design was replaced by the new Liberty Head V Nickel.

The obverse side of 1883 Liberty Head V Nickels comes with a depiction of Lady Liberty. This bust shows a left-profile effigy of Liberty with a coronet crown and a laurel wreath. Designed by Charles Barber, then serving as the 6th Chief Engraver of the United States Mint. Liberty’s figure is surrounded by 13 stars with a date mark of 1883 at the bottom.

On the reverse field of the 1883 Liberty Head Nickels, you will find the Roman numeral V that gives this design series its name. The Roman numeral V was the designation of the coin’s face value of five cents. Crucially, these particular coins lack the word CENTS that was added later in 1883.

These 1883 Liberty Head V Nickels are in Mint State 65 condition. Coins with this grade showcase an attractive, high-quality luster. The coins have flaws that include the potential for small, scattered contact marks, two larger marks, one or two small patches of hairlines, and even light scuff marks. customer service is available at 888-989-7223.
