Earle Fraser, the obverse of each copper-nickel Indian Head Coin boasts the image of an unnamed American Indian, believed to be the combination of three chiefs from various tribes: Big Tree of the Kiowa, Iron Tail of the Lakota Sioux and Two Moons of the Cheyenne. Fraser’s reverse features the profile of an American Bison, believed to be Black Diamond, a 1,500-pound buffalo who spent his days at the Central Park Zoo.
Less than five years after the US Mint ceased production of the Buffalo Nickel, the onset of World War II initiated the rationing and repurposing of metals for the war effort. Nickel quickly became a hot commodity, and the Mint disclosed the new composition for War Nickels, minted from 1942-1945: 56 percent copper, 35 percent silver and 9 percent manganese. Wartime Nickels have grown increasingly popular among collectors due to a variety of distinctive design variations, while investors value its considerable silver content.
