Today In History - A Nickel For Your Thoughts

Ever wonder how long we have had used the nickel as part of our coinage. I never did but I found out today anyway, or at least I found out the day that the nickel coin was authorized by the Congress. That day was May 16 way back in 1866 (source, you may have to specifically search for May 16th once there).

More information on the U.S. nickel can be found here.

All the best,
Glenn B
