The Jefferson nickel has been the five-cent coin struck by the United States Mint since 1938, when it replaced the Buffalo nickel. From 1938 until 2004, the copper-nickel coin's obverse featured a profile depiction of founding father and third U.S. President Thomas Jefferson by artist Felix Schlag;
the obverse design used in 2005 was also in profile, though by Joe
Fitzgerald. Since 2006 Jefferson's portrayal, newly designed by Jamie
Franki, faces forward. The coin's reverse is still the Schlag original,
although in 2004 and 2005 the piece bore commemorative designs. The Nickels Composition is 75% Copper, 25% Nickel.
