2012-P Nickel

Have a nickel and want to know its value? Leave a comment

Only a few weeks into the new year and I am just getting last year's nickel. Actually it is not that bad seeing how new coins are slow to get around. I can no longer judge how well new coins are circuating since most of my money transactions are now electronic.

It has been said many times before collect new and collect old without worrying about the stuff in between. Okay maybe that has never been said but it is still good advice, especially when talking about coins.

As for the current melt value is around $0.0517494 or if we round to the nearest cent, $0.05. While hoarding stuff seems to be the new trend whether it is Twinkies, bullets, assault rifles, or nickels they are not a great investment. Even if value triples the hurdles when trying to redeem them will make profits small and silly in hindsight. Kind of like the person who is working on a way to build a weapon the would stop a gun from firing making hoarding guns a useless act in the future. Still not to stifle collectors and quick profit makers I say exploit while you can. I wonder did people get full metal value when the large cents were replaced with small cents?

Here's the stats... 
Type/Country: 5 Cents / United States of America
Year: 2012 P
Mintage: 464,640,000 (estimated)
Metal: 75% copper 25% nickel
Value: $0.10 in MS-60, $6.00 in MS-66 and 6 Full Steps (this one is neither)

Yes, I am assuming this one is a lower grade.

Do you have a U.S.  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.
