My question my be stupid who cares I noticed from 2004 to 2006 the nickels are considered Westward Journey Series. I indeed understand why the 2004 and 2005 are called that because of the reverse but the 2006 is normal I know its called The Return to Monticello does that make them more collectable? Help me out here a pic of them for a mint roll I've come across it clearly say Westward Series but the reverse is just regular

It's the first year of the present design.
I wish it were the last too, but to me, that's all that's significant about it.
They sold em tho, as if they were just as important as the other 4 in 2004 and 2005.
(I only like the Bison)
I wish they would have made that a one year coin as well and went back to the design of 1938 on the obverse.
My favorite album!

I understand I hate the Lincoln Shelid cent with a passion. It ruined Penny's for me it just looks cheap and I hope
get rid of them all together or change the reverse they are pitiful. Here's a old 1938 obverse

So many hate almost all Nickels except the Indian/Bison ones. It is apparent the US Mint hates them too since they constantly make Nickels to irritate people.

For me, I suppose it's a love hate relationship. Loved collecting them in the late seventies, lost interest in the eighties then loved them again in the mid-2000's. I find myself hoarding the near mint states and don't know why.

I had no problem with nickels until this new awful obverse. If they wanted to use a new one, the 2005 was much better. I continue to collect them, but only in MS and pretty much just to fill albums.

Nickels. Love 'em, hate 'em.

I'm partial to the 2005 'Western Waters' design--especially the reverse. I hold on to every BU example I come across, and proofs too. Have a nice stash of them.

I do not hate the new design and I welcomed the change. It allowed me to say that my 1938-2003 Jefferson nickel collection is complete.

Low key every single circulating design would look much more appealing if they just made the relief higher, I wish they'd consider doing that for all the numismatic products like mint and proof sets.

Funny-as a Canadian I do not understand why so many hate the new 5 cent coin. I rather like them.

Its not about change. I am fine with that. Like I said, I would have loved for them to keep the 05 obverse. I just find this rendition of Jefferson to be horrid.

The criticism for this design is fair, admittedly I prefer the 1938 design, but by no means is the 2006 one bad in my eyes.

What I don't get is the disdain for the shield cent reverse, do people really think this design is terrible? I mean it has more going for it than the wheat reverse, but I'm fine with all three. Everybody's entitled to their own opinions but I can't help but feel the reluctance towards shield cents is purely on the merit of nostalgia, it's an absolutely passable design as is.

I have to say I like the 2005 obverse is more than 2006+.

I have said many times I like the shield cent.

What I do not like is circulating cents, which goes back to what I said about resisting change.
