This beautiful Silver round features the iconic design from the ‘Buffalo Nickel’ or the ‘Indian Head Penny.’ This Buffalo round will make a valuable addition to any American Silver collection, especially ones that collect designs depicting the rich heritage of the United States of America. It is manufactured by a well-known private facility in Indiana – the SilverTowne Mint.
Interestingly, the design of this Silver round is taken from the design made by James Earle Fraser, a native of Winona, Minnesota. His inspiration for the scenery in the design were the prairies, he grew up on – wide rolling greens for miles, with cattle grazing peacefully.
The obverse face of this round features the side profile of a Buffalo (said to be motivated by a Buffalo in New York City’s Central Park Zoo named Black Diamond). Also imprinted on this side, around the image, are the words, ‘United States of America,’ ‘E Pluribus Unum,’ and ‘1 oz. 999 Fine Silver.’
