As nickel was strategic war material during World War II, nickels coined from 1942 to 1945 were struck in copper-silver-manganese alloy which would not require adjustment to vending machines. They bear large mint mark above depiction of Monticello on reverse. In 2004 and 2005, nickel saw new designs as part of Westward Journey nickel series, and since 2006 has borne Schlag's reverse and Franki's obverse.
