article imageHow Much Will You Pay for a Five Cent Coin?

By Janice Ambrose     Apr 26, 2007 in Business
A coin collector paid $5 million for a rare 'Liberty Head' nickel. This is the most ever paid for a five cent piece and the second highest price paid for any coin.
The 1913 nickel was bought from a New Jersey based coin shop and a businessman in Washington state, who bought the coin together in 2005 for the then record price $4.15 million.
The Liberty Head nickel gets its name from the symbolic image of a "Miss Liberty" mistakenly stamped on it by the Philadelphia mint in 1913, the year that icon was replaced with images of an Indian and a bison.
There are only five 1913 Liberty Head nickels to-day. Two in public museum collections. One in the Smithsonian Museums permanent coin collection in Washington, DC. The other is at the American Numismatic Association Money Museum in Colorado Springs.
