Classic Civil War-era coins like these take you back to the days of Lincoln’s second inauguration, the battle for the Confederate capital Richmond, and Reconstruction. These now- obsolete, copper-nickel 3¢ pieces were created to alleviate a coin shortage caused by the hoarding of silver coins. With the exception of the first year, mintages rarely topped 4.8 million. And in time, millions were melted down to make 5¢ nickels – making 3¢ coins elusive for today’s collectors.

This 5-coin set brings you a coin from each of the series’ first five years, 1865-1869! Each low-mintage piece displays Liberty on the obverse and the roman numeral III surrounded by a laurel wreath on the reverse. Order today to get your set, presented in a FREE display case!
