A nickel is an American coin that has a value of 5 cents. Nickels have decreased in value over the years but are still in use due to prices increasing and decreasing by multiples of five cents.
Positive: Seeing a nickel in a dream could be a reminder to not take advantage of the seemingly insignificant things in life, because everything has a purpose. Dreaming of a nickel could also represent the grace of God (the number five). In a dreaming, someone placing a nickel in your hand could represent the grace of God falling on your life. Dreaming of counting nickels can be symbolic of counting the cost. Dreaming of saving nickels could represent taking care of the small things in life so you can be trusted with bigger things.
Negative: Dreaming of nickels could represent lack or a poverty mindset. Dreaming of being concerned over a nickel could represent stinginess or greed. In a dream, seeing someone fight over a nickel could represent lack and not trusting the Lord and His provision.
