Also, the nickel is probably the least circulated coin in the U.S. I haven't found the statistics but I'm just using logic.

It takes 4 quarters before someone wants to trade them in for a dollar. It takes 2.5 dimes before trading up to a quarter. And it takes 5 pennies to get to a nickel. But it only takes 2 nickels to trade up to a dime.

So it's highly probably that nickels are the coin in least circulation.
