The American twenty-cent piece

The father of the twenty-cent piece was Nevada Senator
John P. Jones and part-owner of the Crown Point Mine. He
introduced a bill to authorize a twenty- cent piece, one of his
first legislative endeavors. His proposal cited the lack of small 
change in the West. It was endorsed by the Director of the mint
Linderman and other legislators went along with it, largely as a
favor to Sen. Jones. The bill was signed into law by President
Ulysses S. Grant on March 3, 1875. The coin was only used
for 3 years.

RARE NICKEL HAS SOLD FOR MILLIONS!

rare nickel

SCHAUMBERG, Ill. (AP) – A rare century-old U.S. nickel that was once mistakenly declared a fake has sold at auction for more than $3.1 million.

The 1913 Liberty Head nickel is one of only five known to exist. But it’s the coin’s
back story that adds to its cachet: It was surreptitiously and illegally cast, discovered
in a car wreck that killed its owner, declared a fake, forgotten in a closet for
decades then declared the real deal.

It was offered for sale by four Virginia siblings at a rare coin and currency auction in
the Chicago suburb of Schaumburg on Thursday, and sold for well over the expected 
$2.5 million.

The winning bidders were two men from Lexington, Ky., and Panama City, Fla., who 
bought the coin in partnership.
