1965 year of mint for jefferson nickel

3 posts in this topic

Hello experts,

Is anyone aware that in 1965 they minted jefferson nickels with a 1964 date?

Public Law 88-580 giving the Mint the authority to retain the date 1964 on all coins manufactured after Jan 1st 1965.  Until adequate supplies of coins are available.

My column in The Numismatist currently features a multi-issue series about the coins "dated" 1964. Part One was just published in the December issue, and it will continue through March. It will be rerun at the NGC website sometime next year.
