The obverse showcases a modernized reproduction of the Indian head design found on James Earl Fraser’s Indian Head Nickel, also known as the Buffalo Nickel. The portrait of a Native American man was inspired by three chiefs including Big Tree of the Kiowa, Two Moons of the Cheyenne, and Iron Tall of the Lakota Sioux. Inscriptions include “LIBERTY” and the year of issue.
The reverse features an American buffalo, inspired by a 1,550 pound bison named Black Diamond that lived in the Central Park Zoo. Inscriptions include “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “NOT LEGAL TENDER,” and the weight and purity. You’ll also find a mintmark in the shape of Provident’s iconic compass logo.
This newly redesigned silver round is based on the original Buffalo Nickel designed by James Earl Fraser. It was produced by the US Mint from 1913 to 1938, and it remains a popular coin among collectors and numismatists. Provident partnered with industry professionals to modernize the look for this new round, while staying true to the well-loved original design.
Each Silver Buffalo round comes in a plastic flip. Multiples within the same order may come in a plastic tube.
