The circulation strike 2006 Jefferson Nickels were released by the U.S. Mint on January 12, 2006. However, the Proof coins were issued at different times since they came in different Proof Sets from the U.S. Mint. The 2006 Jefferson Nickel is the first coin to have a Presidents portrait facing forward. In the past, the Presidents depictions have been displayed on a profiled view.
Most 2006-S Proof Jefferson Nickels came in Proof Sets ranging from PR68-PR69 Deep Cameo quality. Perfect PR70 Deep Cameo examples were a little more difficult to find but enough examples were stuck that almost anyone can afford one very inexpensively in graded PR70 Deep Cameo condition.
