Three rulers in the Bactrian kingdom were first to issue nickel coins in the first century AD. Two of the coins are pictured at the top. The coins were 25% nickel and 75% copper alloy, just like today’s U.S. nickel coin. The source of the ancient nickel is unknown.

Cold Fusion Now has a particular interest in numismatics. Author John Francisco is an ancient coin collector whose specialty is the Pythagorean coins of Magna Graecia. His research on ancient coins is regularly published in The Celator magazine. [visit]

Personally, my favorite is the ancient electrum from Lydia and Ionia, some of the first coins ever minted, but more recently, I’ve been snagging nickels.

While in Florida last winter, I met Steve Schor at the Hollywood Coin Club. [visit] Steve is a huge resource on coins from every age. His breadth of knowledge commands the whole club be asking him “What’s up with this coin?”

Of course I give him the cold fusion now rundown – and he goes for it!

I had a table at a coin show last October 2011 in Hollywood, Florida, and here’s a photo showing the portion dedicated to clean energy. Notice Edmund StormsThe Science of Low Energy Nuclear Reaction, .pdfs of the 2011 MIT CF/LANR Colloquium, and Cold Fusion Now stickers.

Steve borrowed my copy of Storms’ The Science of, but luckily, I got it back.

Yes, there are plenty of coin collectors in the South Florida area who will not be surprised when technology is released thanks to this event.

Steve Schor, former engineer and coin collector, just compiled a list of “all nickel” coins. I can’t believe how many there have been. If you’ve got any of these coins, take a picture and send it to me, cause I collect pictures of nickels, too!

Schor’s file has been re-formatted and v.2 of Pure Nickel Coins is available as Excel spreadsheet [.xls] or exported to [.pdf]. Note: weight is in grams.

Look at all that power – in your pocket!

If you have any questions about these coins, email Steve here.

  1. Hi, There is an awful lot I like about this piece. But what I especially like is the links to the various governing bodies, in detail, of the issuing country. All the US Senators and Representatives have their phone numbers listed. I left phone messages for all of the members of a number of sub committees dealing with energy related issues. . The only political figure that I know of that actively boosts LENR is Randy Hekman, the Republican candidate for US Senator from Michigan.

    The international Nickel usage is almost poetic.

    Mailing Nickels is good, emailing is better; although most of our officials have a zip code filter on their email access page. Access is limited to constituents. The other option is to make phone calls. It is quicker and far more personal.

    I think the aim of all of this is to inspire our elected officials to show us exactly how concerned they are about promoting the “general welfare” of the people.

    1. If you are looking trguohh change or rolls the cents would be best. There are the 1998,1999 and 2000 wide AM coins. The AM in America have a wide space between them. then there is the 1992 and 1992-D close AM. Then here is the 1995 doubled die obverse,1984 double ear, 1983 doubled die reverse, 1970 small date (high 7) and the 1969-S doubled die obverse. The above coins sell for $4.00 to several hundred depending on which one you find. Hope this helps.

  2. if the 1921 canadian nikcel is real then it could be worth a fortune. i know somsone who got one sold to the roadshow last week that is in winnipeg this week and they bought it for just under $10,000. they apparently will go upwards of 70k for mint cond ones.. it because 1921 canadian nikcels were made of real silver. they stopped mintin them that year and changed to nikcel in 1922 so 1922 on are probably not worth much but pre 1921 could be worth tonnes..good luck!
