Coin collection is establishing itself as a full fledged business in America. This means collection and selling of coins that would be otherwise very difficult to get. As you must know, antique coins are of different types depending upon their constituent material and age; antique nickel coins are one of them. Did you know they have their historical background connected to United States of America? If not, you should tune into this article for a while.

Antique nickel coins are also known as "the American coin" because it is considered as a unit of American currency which is equal to twentieth part of a dollar. Many new nickel coins have been designed since 1938 but they are not considered antique. As we have said earlier, antique coins are those that are not in abundance and exist only in rare quantities. There are several nickel coins that are included in the list of antiques. These are shield nickel coins that were easily available between the periods of 1865 to 1883. Then, there are liberty head nickel coins that existed from 1883 to 1910. Besides these, there are war time nickel coins which many people love to collect now. Let's know more about all these one by one.

The first shield nickel coin was designed in 1866 in America. They had an image of numeric five on them. Though there were some metallurgical problems with these coins as they had some minting errors but you can easily find large numbers of people now who want to collect them as antique nickel coins. Liberty head nickel coins had an encryption of V over them. Facts show that only 5 to 10 of these coins are present in today's world. That is why they are considered very valuable antiques. Then, there are wartime antique nickel coins. These coins are not too old in terms of their age but still they are the choice for people who want to collect war collectibles. These coins were used till around 1978, yet they are present in only small numbers.

Now, if you have just developed an interest in the collection of antique coins, nickel coins are easy and valuable to start with. From time to time, auctions are organized by the American government.
