The Buffalo Nickel has proven to be one of the most popular designs from American coining history. Introduced in 1913 by the United States Mint, the coin featured two iconic designs that have been replicated the century since together on bullion products and, in this case, separate from one another on bullion products. Today, you have the opportunity to get 1 oz Copper Indian Head Rounds online at Provident Metals.
James Earle Fraser created the Buffalo Nickel design for the United States Mint in 1913. The design was used to replaced the Barber Liberty Head nickel design, one of several designs from then-Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, Charles E. Barber. The design from Fraser was approved by the administration of President William Howard Taft.
In the obverse design element, the 1 oz Copper Indian Head Round features the iconic Native American figure created by James Earle Fraser in 1913. The right-profile image of the indigenous tribal leader was created in 1913 for the Buffalo Nickel and features a figure with braided hair that includes feathers woven and the word Liberty engraved just off the bridge of his nose on the right side of the design rocker.
For the reverse design element on the 1 oz Copper Indian Head Round, the mint uses a common design across its broader range of copper rounds. This image features a set of wings at the center of the design with a modified US shield at the center. This shield has a series of vertical lines with three stars. The center star is the largest and exceeds the top of the shield with its highest point. The American flag is fluttering in the breeze above the seal with an inscription of Copper .999 Fine, One AVDP Ounce, and six stars around the design rocker.
The Buffalo Nickel was in production at the United States Mint from 1913 to 1938. The coin featured this obverse design of a stoic Native American figure on its obverse with an American bison featured on the reverse of the coin. The Native American depiction was created by Fraser by combining the facial features of three real-world tribal leaders.
