We are pleased to offer for sale this 1981-S Type 2 Jefferson Proof Nickel.  The Jefferson Nickel is in brilliant uncirculated condition, with nice eye appeal and no major marks or visible problems.  This coin is taken from an original Proof set, and is an outstanding value!

The Jefferson Nickel design was selected through a mint sponsored contest in 1938, and the winning design came from Felix Schlag.  Schlag's initials were added underneath the bust in 1966.  The obverse of the Jefferson Nickel features a left facing profile of Jefferson, adapted from a marble bust by sculptor Jean-Antoine Houdon, as well as the motto IN GOD WE TRUST.  The reverse features Jefferson's home Monticello.  Apart from a small change to the stairs of Monticello in 1939, the design was unchanged from 1938 through 2003.  The Jefferson Nickel is one of the most common designs in circulation because of the long period of mintage combined with the hardness of nickel, making it possible to find coins from the 1940s and 1950s still in circulation.

The 1981-S Type 2 Jefferson Proof Nickel is comprised of .750 (75%) copper and .250 (25%) nickel, with a diameter of 21.21mm and a mass of 5 grams.  It is a beautiful coin in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, a great value and perfect for any Jefferson Nickel collection.  There were 4,063,083 of the 1981-S Jefferson Proof Nickels minted at the San Francisco Mint. A new mint mark was introduced in October of 1981 when the current mint mark began to deteriorate. The Type 2 1981-S Jefferson Nickels are the ones that were struck with the new mint mark.
