    Description

    The Buffalo nickel, also known as the Indian Head nickel, stands out as one of the most distinctive and widely recognized coins ever produced by the U.S. Mint. Its unique design, crafted by sculptor James Earl Fraser, was minted from 1913 to 1938, leaving a lasting impression on numismatics enthusiasts and collectors.

    In 1911, a significant decision was made to replace Charles E. Barber’s Liberty Head design for the nickel. This led to the commissioning of James Earl Fraser, who impressed the   Taft administration officials with his work.  Despite a delay caused by an objection from the Hobbs Manufacturing Company, the designs were approved in 1912.  Finally, in February 1913, Treasury Secretary Franklin MacVeagh decided to issue the coins, marking a pivotal moment in the history of the Buffalo nickel.

    • Contains 1 oz. Troy of .999 Fine Silver
    • Obverse: Right-facing head of a Native American, with the word “LIBERTY” in the outer circumference at approximately two o’clock, and the date on the lower left.
    • Reverse: “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” around the top of the outer circumference, with the words “E PLURIBUS UNUM” below “AMERICA,”  above a high-relief depiction of the American Bison.  “ONE TROY OUNCE” centered below the bison, with the Mint Mark and Hallmark below.

      This tribute is as beautiful as they come! Pure, shiny, and extremely detailed! It is true to form and symbolization, an instant heirloom for sure. The dogged buffalo and proud Indian, form a great-again collaboration for the eternal quest of freedom and sovereignty. Something that has become a rarity in society these days. Well, that’s my honest opinion, for what it’s worth…..
