New nickel unveiled

CNN Money has an article on the new nickel. The TJ profile shows the other side of his face and there will be two different tails sides to the coin.

Trivial facts: the buffalo side, which is returning to the nickel after going missing in 1938 was a James Earl Fraser design, despite North Beach trivia that Benny Bufano did the design and/or posed for the Indian head on the heads side.
