MrThe’s Hobo Nickels are now available at Provident Metals. Add the first design in this series, the Fisherman 5 oz Silver Antiqued Hobo Nickel, to your collection of silver bullion today. These antiqued hobo nickels are minted by the Osborne Mint, contain five troy ounces of .999 fine silver, and come with a Certificate of Authenticity.
The hobo nickel is a cultural art form where the design of small-denomination coins is modified. The modification of coinage dates to Colonial America in the 1750s, but became prevalent in the early 20th century with the introduction of Fraser’s Buffalo Nickel. MrThe has sculpted five hobo nickel designs on 1 oz silver buffalo rounds using a combination of contemporary tools and traditional techniques. Each release can be purchased as a 1 oz proof-like round, 1 oz antiqued round, and 5 oz antiqued round.
The obverse of this 5 oz silver round carries the visage of the classic roaming fisherman. The fisherman wears a woolen hat and turtleneck sweater, and has a cigarette between his lips. This round also features rope-like design around the rim, and the inscriptions “LIBERTY”, and “1937”. This round was sculpted by MrThe in Orlando at the 2012 FUN show over a two day period.
The reverse design on this coin features a fisherman sitting on a boat dock in a lake that lies in front of three mountains; the fisherman has his line cast into the lake. The reverse also carries the engravings “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”, “E PLURIBUS UNUM”, and “FIVE CENTS”.
These charming silver rounds are also edge marked with an individual number.
These 5 oz silver rounds were designed by Paolo Curcio, also known as MrThe. MrThe is a classically trained artist that studied at the Academy of Fine Arts. Based in Spain, MrThe crafts several of the most unique and stunning hobo nickels currently available. Celebrate this historic cultural artform, and add a hobo nickel 5 oz silver round to your stack of silver bullion.
