This 1/4 oz Silver Buffalo Round from the Golden State Mint (GSM) is crafted from 99.9% pure silver is a very smart way to add silver bullion to your investment portfolio. Because it is modeled after the very popular Buffalo or Indian Head Nickel designed by renowned sculpture James Earle Fraser, its design is easily recognized by dealers and collectors the world over. The beloved original coin was struck by the United States Mint between 1913 and 1938. Therefore, because of its collectible design and clear value, these rounds could easily be monetized in the rare event of an economic collapse of the government or the monetary system when precious metals such as silver could become the only form of monetary exchange. As part of a series of the rounds released, investors and collectors can customize their purchase of the Buffalo Silver Round to include the 1 ounce, 1/2 ounce, and 1/10 ounce for a complete set of four, collectible silver rounds. Another benefit of purchasing the Buffalo Silver round is that, because these rounds are sold in small dollar increments, investors can easily collect as few or as many as they choose.
At a time in history when the American frontier was fading, Frazer captured the majesty of the West in a sculpture that has stood the test of time in a round that is highly prized by coin collectors and investors, alike. This ounce Buffalo Silver Round reflects the same majesty as Frazer’s original design. The obverse or front of the round is inscribed with the word Liberty emblazoned across top of the iconic Indian head. Three American Indian chiefs are said to have inspired Frazer’s design: Two Moons of the Cheyenne, Big Tree of the Kiowa, and Iron Tail of the Lakota Sioux. The American buffalo inspired by the famous profile of Black Diamond, an American Bison then living at the Bronx Zoo is proudly displayed on the reverse side of the Buffalo Silver Round. The reverse is also clearly marked with Troy Ounce across the top and 99.9% Fine Silver across the bottom. This makes the Silver Round just as inspiring as Frazer had originally depicted this proud Indian chief and the magnificent American Bison and makes the Silver Round a highly prized collectible.

" As of 12 Apr 12, these babies are out of stock! Glad I got mine before you did!...haha! If you should be lucky enough to get your hot little hands on these, you'll know exactly what I mean."

" Ordered 40 of these along with 20 of the 1/2 oz rounds. Both arrived in pristine condition and very well packaged. Highly recommended!"

" What a beautiful coin. I can`t say enough about the quality of these coins. I wasn`t to impressed with the time frame. Paid with a credit card to save some time, still 12 days to process and another 3 days for delivery. I may give PM another try, but if it is going to take this long to complete, i most likely will not be back."

" My rounds arrived recently and i love them! I actually just ordered 20 - 1/10 oz rounds i liked the 1/4 oz so much. It seems silly, but I love just holding them in my hands. There is something to be said about holding a tangible asset such as silver and gold vs.paper money. I would love to think I will never need these rounds for commerce, but I feel better knowing i have them just in case. "

" I'm very happy with these coins. They arrived today packaged very well. Shiny and flawless coins! Love the indian head on one side and the old "buffalo nickel" design on the obverse. They are about the size of a quarter. Highly recommended for your fractional silver investing needs. Thanks Provident!"
