1997-P Jefferson Nickel Value

1997-P Jefferson Nickel value depends on the condition, grade and if the steps are fully struck on the building (Full Steps), referred to as FS, but FS is rare and most examples don’t have that strong of a strike.

So expect to see a value from 5 cents to .10 cents in grades almost uncirculated (AU) or less, and .50 cents plus for uncirculated raw examples. Can be worth over $120 if graded by PCGS or NGC in MS66 FS.

1997-P Jefferson Nickel Value

Mint mark placement 1968 to present

5 Full Steps (FS)

Price guides offer values loosely based on coins already graded or encapsulated by PCGS and NGC, and rarely sample the values of raw, common and circulated coins.

Jefferson Nickels are not silver but consist mostly of copper with a balance of nickel that give them a “silver” appearance. The only exception is in 1942-1945 and they did contain 35% silver and 75%, but they must have the large mint mark on the back and above the Monticello Monument.
