Obverse: Since 2006, the image on the front of the nickel is the Thomas Jefferson likeness, based on a Rembrandt Peale portrait completed in 1800. The portrait showed Jefferson as Vice President at 57 years of age.
The cursive "Liberty" inscription, modeled after Jefferson's own handwriting, debuted on the 2005 nickels.
Reverse: The reverse of the 2006 nickel features the classic rendition of Monticello originally executed by artist Felix Schlag. However, the 2006 reverse design is crisper than ever before.
