In my hand, I have two United States Coins whose totatl value is 55 cents. However, one of the coins is not a nickel.

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.

are the two coins a half dollar and five pennies?
