A small quantity of 4,763 specially made Proof Liberty Head nickels were struck in 1909 at the Philadelphia Mint. These premium-quality collector versions of the 1909 Liberty Head nickel were produced with specially buffed and polished Proof dies and coin blanks. Each Proof is struck at least twice, at slow speed, and with extra pressure. The result is the magnificent Proof finish featuring sharply struck design images contrasted against beautiful flawless surfaces. Order today!
