2011-P U.S. Nickel

Do you have a nickel and want to know its value? Leave a comment

One reason for collecting brand new coins is to get the highest grade possible without having to pay for it. For nickels the standard is Full Steps. The back building is Monticello and at the base should be 6 separate steps but this only true on exceptional coins.

Go ahead count the steps I'll wait.

Now full steps means that all the way across the step the lines are fully separated. So if at any point Step 4 and Step 5 blend together or the separation line disappear then it is not 6-full-steps it is at least 5-full-steps.


Ignoring the nicks and bag marks this is one great looking coin. Full steps (FS) nickels carry a premium value but they should also be at least Mint State 60 for older nickels and at least Mint State 66 for recent years.

Here's the stats... 
Type/Country: 5 Cents / United States of America
Year: 2011 P
Mintage: 326,880,000 (estimated)
Metal: 75% copper 25% nickel
Value: $0.10 in MS-60, $6.00 in MS-66 and 6 Full Steps

Oh yeah I am assuming this one is a lower grade.

Do you have a nickel and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.
