What is your question? Are we supposed to guess the two coins?
There was once a silver five cent piece struck in the US that was called a half dime. It was eventually (in 1873) repleced by the nickel.
That could be one of your two coins. You can guess the other one.

The two coins are a half dollar and a nickel.
The problem statement said that "one" of the coins was not a nickel. Nothing was said about the "other" coin not being a nickel.
