Interesting Facts – The 1938 through 1942 D versions of the nickel are also made of the same composition, but generally are sold for a premium over their melt value due to rarity. 0,05053606 was the melt value on December 18,2011.As of March 14, 2011, the value of the metal in a nickel is $0.0665396, 33.07% more than its face value. The final Westward Journey nickel reverse  depicts the Pacific Ocean and the words from William Clark’s diary upon reaching it. In a controversial move, the U.S. Mint decided to amend Clark’s actual words. He had originally written, “Ocian in view! O! The Joy!” but as the spelling “ocian” is nonstandard (and might have led to hoarding in the mistaken belief that the Mint had made an error that would soon be corrected), the U.S. Mint decided to modify it to “ocean”
