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.
