I already have new nickles. The front side is the same and the back is the Louisiana purchase???
They are issuing 4 new nickels over 2004-2005 commemorating the Louisana Purchase and Lewis & Clark's journey. Two were issued in 2004. One had the "Peace Medal" design (the handshake) and the second had a Keel Boat. The next two are the ones on this article. I didn't know they were changing the image of Jefferson though.
Not sure i like it yet. I'd like to see all the coins redesigned, but going back to allegorical images of Liberty as was the case in the 1800's thru early 1900's.
