Is a nickel considered to be a coin?

In popular usage, a nickel IS a coin even though its name is technically "5 cent piece". The name dates back to the mid-1800s when nickel was first used in making US coins. At that time the Mint issued 3-cent and 5-cent coins made of silver. When it became practical to use nickel metal in coins, the Mint also struck the same denominations in an alloy of copper and nickel. The two different compositions circulated together for a number of years; to distinguish them from their silver counterparts people called both nickel-based coins "nickels", adding the denomination: 3-cent nickels and 5-cent nickels. Eventually the Mint discontinued production of both three-cent coins and silver five-cent coins, leaving only so-called "5-cent nickels" in circulation. Because there was no longer any need to distinguish denominations, people dropped the "5-cent" modifier in ordinary conversation and the coins simply became "nickels".

What are the 2 coins if you have 2 US coins that total 55 cents and one of them is not a nickel?

The answer is a nickel and a 50 cent piece (half dollar). The question states that *one* of them is not a nickel, but the other coin may be a nickel. In fact, this is the only answer. One is a half dollar and the other is the nickel. This way, one is not the nickel, the other is the nickel.

Is nickel from earth the same as the 5 cent nickel?

US "nickels" (5-cent coins) contain nickel metal - except during WWII, they've always been struck in an alloy of 25% nickel metal and 75% copper. The coin's name comes from the fact that it was one of the first US coins to contain nickel metal. When nickel coins were introduced in the mid-19th century people referred to them as "nickels" to distinguish them from their older silver counterparts. The denomination was also part of the nickname, e.g. "three-cent nickel", "five-cent nickel". By the late 19th century the five-cent nickel was the only coin of that composition still being made, so the people gradually shortened the nickname in common slang. When Canada replaced its silver 5-cent coins with nickel coins in 1922 the US slang name was already well-established, so Anglophone Canadians adopted it as well. Unlike their American counterparts, Canadian nickels actually were pure nickel from 1922 to 1981, except during war years when various substitute metals were used.
