Unfortunately not, in 1942 Philadelphia minted both silver and standard nickels. The coin pictured is the standard copper nickel alloy still found in today's nickels. A way to tell is a nickel is silver for 1942 is to see if there is a mint mark above the Monticello on the reverse. If there is, then it's silver. For the rarity It's rare to find in circulation but not rare in itself as just under 50,000,000 were minted. It however is still a cool coin to hold onto given it's age

I know it's a little late but according to a video I just watched that is actually an error coin. Supposedly it was struck on a silver planchet and that coin sold for over $9,000!

Don't believe every video you see, that nickel is worth exactly five cents.
