Lovely Top Pop 1939-D Jefferson Nickel Offered in our Current iAuction 3534

Lovely Top Pop 1939-D Jefferson Nickel Offered in our Current iAuction 3534

By James McCartney, Numismatist & Cataloger

Lot 20169 of our current iAuction 3534 showcases an important Top Pop rarity for enthusiasts of   pristine 20th century U.S. type coins. 1939-D is essentially the key date of the entire series, with a comparatively paltry production figure of 3,514,000 coins. While a significant quantity of Jefferson nickels from the inaugural mintage were saved for their novelty, this second-year issue was largely overlooked and saw heavy circulation.

Satiny Mint State 1916-S Walking Liberty Half Dollar Featured in our Monthly iAuction 3533

Satiny Mint State 1916-S Walking Liberty Half Dollar Featured in our Monthly iAuction 3533

By James McCartney, Numismatist & Cataloger

1916 saw an aesthetic renaissance of our nation’s coinage, ushering in an era of numismatic artistry at the United States Mint.  Chief Engraver Charles Barber’s Liberty Head motif had dominated the silver denominations from the late 19th century through the first decade and a half of the 20th, but 1916 saw an end to this reign. The dime, quarter and half dollar were redesigned to exhibit depictions of Liberty that offered a relatively unprecedented diversity to our coinage.
