Lowest Mintage Jefferson Nickels in High Grade!

The 1950-D Jefferson Nickel is the lowest mintage of the entire series. Just over 2.6 million were struck – compare that to 2018 when more than 1.2 BILLION were struck! So why the shortage? The United States was in recession that year, and little demand existed for nickels in the area served by the Denver Mint.

Of course, this shortage resulted in a frenzy of hoarding, with thousands of rolls being preserved. This isn’t just the lowest mintage Jefferson of all time, it’s also the most widely hoarded nickel since the 1938-D Buffalo! Finding a quantity of this date in any condition is difficult, but we managed to find a small number graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in Gem Uncirculated Mint State-66 (MS66) condition – just 1 point away from a Superb Gem grade – with a special FS or “Full Steps” designation, meaning the steps of Jefferson’s Monticello home on the coin’s reverse are well-struck and visible.

  • LOWEST MINTAGE JEFFERSON NICKEL – The 1950-D Jefferson Nickel struck at the Denver Mint is the lowest mintage coin of the entire Jefferson Nickel series.
  • ICONIC POPULAR DESIGN – Struck from 1938 to 2003, the traditional Jefferson Nickel is one of America’s most popular and iconic coins. Jefferson’s portrait was designed by German-Born American sculptor Felix Oscar Schlag, who won a $1,000 prize for being the winning designer.
  • EXCEPTIONALLY HIGH GRADE – Your 1950-D Jefferson Nickel has been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in Gem Uncirculated Mint State-66 (MS66) condition.
  • UNIQUE CERTIFICATION FEATURE – NGC has further certified this nickel with an “FS” designation for Full Steps – a designation that highlights the coin’s sharp detail as evidenced by the detail seen on the steps depicted on the coin’s reverse.
