The 1964 Jefferson nickel was the first billion-coin nickel mintage. This was achieved while all US Mints were running seven days a week to replace the silver coinage being hoarded by the public as silver prices rose. To prevent more hoarding, coin dates were frozen at 1964, meaning that the billion-coin mintage of the 1964 Jefferson nickel covered more than 12 months.

The Value of A 1964 Jefferson Nickel

Millions of 1964 Jefferson nickels were hoarded at the time, making this date common up through MS65. Once again, strike quality was the worst in years, as the government struggled to supply enough coins to keep the economy running.
