The Liberty Nickel was designed by Charles E. Barber and first minted in 1883. It first appeared without the word “Cents” on the coin, merely a large letter “V.” Some of these “cent-less” coins were gold plated and passed as $5.00 gold pieces. Later that year the word “Cents” was added to discourage the fraudulent practice. Regular issue Liberty Nickels were last minted in 1912. The obverse depicts a profile of Liberty surrounded by thirteen stars.
The Liberty Nickel Collection is sold with 15 coins, 1898 through 1912, in Good to Very Good condition, mounted in a display album page.
