The 1890 Liberty Head nickel was struck at the Philadelphia Mint during the year Wyoming and Idaho joined the Union. The westward expansion of the nation was in full swing, and some 11 million acres of land in South Dakota, formerly belonging to the Sioux Indians, were opened to homesteaders. Yosemite National Park and Sequoia National Park were established in 1890. A great many Liberty Head nickels struck in 1890 traveled west in pioneer pockets!
