The American Buffalo used to call most of the United States territory home, but the introduction of settlers, trains, bovine disease and, eventually, barbed wire fences has reduced their numbers dramatically. Harken back to the days of the buffalo’s dominance with this set of 20 ½ ounce Buffalo Nickel copper rounds produced in the United States by the Golden State Mint.
This copper round is based on the original Buffalo, or Indian Head, Nickel produced from 1913 to 1938. These new-condition rounds measure 33 mm in diameter and contain ½ avoirdupois ounce of .999 fine copper bullion.
The face features the composite Indian profile staring sternly to the right, toward “LIBERTY.” The reverse highlights the famous American Buffalo, with the words “GOLDEN STATE MINT” above and “1/2 OZ 999 FINE COPPER” below.
The animal these rounds portray have a deserved place in American history. It is used as a symbol of the nation and particularly Great Plains states, and is the official animal of the Canadian province of Manitoba.
Because of their speed and incredible weight, the American Buffalo is one of the most dangerous wild animals in North America. More people have been injured in Yellowstone National Park by bison than by bears!
Though bison were nearly extinct, the populations have recovered well, possibly through accidental hybridization from domestic cattle.
