1944 Jefferson five-cent coins don’t leave much for coin collectors to get excited about, as there were no significant errors or varieties that year to report. However, the common array of 1944 Jefferson nickels means you can take an easy walk through the year as a coin collector and acquire the complete set of three (P, D, and S mintmarks) for a highly affordable cost and relatively little effort, as 1944 Jeffersons are easily obtainable in virtually any circulated or lower-level uncirculated grade you want.

Here’s a glance of the mintages and values of 1944 Jefferson nickels: 

  • 1944-P, 119,150,000; $2.75

  • 1944-D, 32,309,000; $2.75

  • 1944-S, 21,640,000; $2.75

 *Values are for coins in Very Fine-20 condition.

If you’re collecting a circulated date-and-mintmark set of Jefferson nickels, there’s no reason to go crazy and buy the “wartime nickels” in uncirculated grades, even though they aren’t generally that expensive. If, however, you would like a higher-grade set of nickels, or perhaps you’re collecting a short set of 1942-45 silver five-cent coins, then 1944 five-cent coins should pose little financial burden to you as they are extremely affordable in Mint State grades, with a price of under $10 each for Mint State-60 specimens.
