New nickels unveiled


U.S. Mint to unveil new nickel designs. It’s interesting they chose to release two different designs. Perhaps to go with the phrase “rubbing two nickels together.” What does that phrase mean?

i collect nickels. I am so excited. Nickels are least frequently seen coin. think about it. when you buy something and you get change, you get one nickel at the most. take a few random numbers: 88. three quarters, one dime, three pennies, no nickels. 46. one quarter, two dimes, one penny, no nickels 63. two quarters. one dime, three pennies 33. one quarter, one nickel, three pennies in those 4 examples we have a total of 7 quarters, 4 dimes, 10 pennies, and only 1 nickel. I like the rarity of finding nickels. It’s a little mini treasure in your hand.

I don’t know why you’d rub two nickels together unless you were a misled boy scout hoping to start a fire.

“Misled boy scout” is redundant. There’s a funny article on that same page which talks about the curse of the new quarters.

I thought the expression was something like “Moe didn’t even have two nickels to rub together.” meaning that Moe was po’. (where “po'” means that you’re so poor, you can’t even afford the “or”.)

Don’t you think it’s obscene how much money is spent on designing money? I think it’s crazy. Talk about a waste!

I just got a 1947 nickel for change from the post office!
