A New Nickel

I love this stuff...If you can't tell.
New NickelThe new portrait of Thomas Jefferson and his home, Monticello.
U.S. Mint

Coming soon: a smiling Thomas Jefferson looking straight at you from a new nickel that will end nearly a century of tradition for U.S. coins.

The Mint planned to begin shipping 80 million of the new 5-cent coins Thursday to the 12 regional Federal Reserve Banks for distribution. They will be the first of an estimated 1 billion new nickels to be put into circulation over the next year. (source)
