- Rare Coins
Rare Nickels - In 1866, after seeing success of non-Precious Metal coinage, Congress authorized the production of nickel coins. The added coinage came at a time historically when very few currency items existed. With the depletion of resources after the Civil War, Gold and Silver were driven out of circulation, making way for the production of nickels. Over the last 150 years, there have been a variety of Nickel coin designs, adding further collectible appeal on top of the charm of circulating U.S. coinage.
There is a variety of rare nickels and nickel designs throughout time, adding tremendous value for any collector's selection. Rare nickels provide a window into the history of American coinage and these highly collectible items all tell a unique story. APMEX carries a range of rare nickel coins, in a number of designs, grades and quantities, providing an opportunity for any nickel collector to find the perfect addition to their holdings.
