How Much Is A 1982 S Jefferson Nickel Worth?
The 1982 S Jefferson Nickel is worth between $1 and $3.50 on average.
This value is strictly based on the coins grade and desirability (amount minted) and doesn’t take current metal spot prices into account as these coins are made of 75% copper (except for the 1942 – 1945 War Nickels) and 25% nickel. Copper is by all accounts a precious metal now and does have some bearing on the nickels melt value. A law passed in 2006 makes it illegal to melt U.S. minted Nickels so it is not advised.
