Description

These are the coins that helped America win the war!  This collection features three historic American coins that were used on a daily basis by American's during WWII.  .

To save valuable copper for the war effort, the U.S. Mint made Lincoln Pennies with steel instead of copper in 1943. This was a one-year-only coin type and the first and only steel coin in U.S. history.  The next year, Pennies were made with recycled copper from shell cases recovered from battlefields and ships around the world. These so-called “Shell Case Pennies” were made until 1946.

Another special World War II coin was the Silver Nickel. Nickel was a valuable component in guns, tanks, and airplanes, so the U.S. Mint made Nickels in a new alloy that included 35% silver.  Made only from 1942 to 1945, this “emergency” coin was the first and only Silver Nickel in U.S. history.

These coins were last made over 70 years ago, and they quickly disappeared from circulation after the war ended. Each is a sought-after collector’s item in its own right, and together they make a superb collection dating to World War II. 

This collection features three genuine coins that were issued by the U.S. Mint during World War II.
