About Lone Star Wooden Nickels
The Lone Star Series of Wooden Nickels are not "just another wooden nickel." These wooden nickels have been designed with the wooden money collector in mind.
Lone Star Wooden Nickels are issued in STRICTLY limited quantities with production records available to all collectors.
With some exceptions, Lone Star Wooden Nickels are dated with the year of issue like regular U.S. coinage.
Also like U.S. coinage, Lone Star Wooden Nickels are printed with "coin alignment" where the reverse design is rotated 180 degrees in relation to the obverse design when flipped horizontally. In order to insure this alignment, each wood is manually stamped. Due to the hand printing, the actual alignment may vary as much as 10 to 15-degrees in either direction, but will generally be in coin alignment.
Lone Star Wooden Nickels are identified with a small Lone Star "mint mark"...a small image of a star on the wood.
The inaugural series for the Lone Star Wooden Nickel series is the 50-State Wooden Nickel Collection being issued in conjunction with the U.S. 50-State Quarter program, but on a more accelerated rate of 10 per year rather than 5 per year.
In addition to the 50-State Collection, Lone Star Creations will also issue woods commemorating a variety of other significant historical events, anniversaries or birthdays as well as other subjects.
A production or "mintage" record is kept of all issues. These records are available on this site as well as published in the Lone Star Newsletter.
