The Buffalo Nickel is one of the most famous and reproduced images from historic American currency. You can find the popular design in the modern era prominently displayed on the American Buffalo 1 oz Gold Coin from the United States Mint, as well as on countless silver rounds and silver bars from private mints. Provident Metals currently has the 1 oz Silver Buffalo Round from Sunshine Mint available to you for online purchasing.
When you purchase a 1 oz Silver Buffalo Round in this product listing, each item you receive comes in brand-new condition from the Sunshine Mint. Individual silver rounds are packaged in protective plastic flips while multiples of 20 are available to you in tubes. The individual rounds also have MintMark SI technology from Sunshine Mint included within the design of the round, though the decoder lens is not available directly through this listing.
A stoic Native American figure is depicted on the obverse side of the 1 oz Silver Buffalo Round. James Earle Fraser designed the Buffalo Nickel imagery in 1913 to replace the existing five-cent piece design on the coin. It was one of the first major denominations in US circulation to feature images of indigenous figures and culture. The figure on this side of the round is said to have been created by blending together the facial features of three existing indigenous leaders of the early 20th century. The only inscriptions on this side of the round are Liberty and SMI.
The American bison is the largest land mammal on the North American continent and is a powerful beast that was revered in indigenous cultures as a provider of many things. The 1 oz Silver Buffalo Round includes a left-profile image of the bison standing on a small mound of dirt. Fraser used Black Diamond, a bison residing at the Central Park Zoo in New York City, as inspiration for his design. Inscriptions on this side read 1 Troy oz .999 Fine Silver.
James Earle Fraser grew up in the Upper Midwest and explored the plains of the Dakotas with his father in the late-19th century. These places were the inspiration for his designs as he launched his art career. The Buffalo Nickel design was approved by the Taft Administration and used on the nickel from 1913 to 1938.
