There is no greater symbol of the power and majesty of the American West than the buffalo. A massive and impressive creature, buffalo roamed the wild plains of the American West for hundreds of years. Their impressive size made them both fearsome to the Native American tribes that called the West home, and provided great value to the people as a source of food and clothing. Today, the buffalo is commemorated on many commemorative rounds such as this 1/10 oz Buffalo Silver Round.

James Earl Fraser is the man responsible for the design featured on today’s 1/10 oz Buffalo Silver Round. Fraser’s design was first used in 1913 on the US government’s Buffalo Nickel coin. On one side of the coin, Fraser created a right-profile image of a Native American chieftain. That design is still regarded today as one of the greatest to be featured on an American coin. On the opposite side, Fraser featured the image of a buffalo. He created the buffalo from the image of Black Diamond, a resident of the New York Central Park Zoo in the early 20th century.
Fraser’s image of a Native American is featured on the obverse side of the round with the word “LIBERTY” engraved to the right of the chieftain’s face. On the reverse side, the depiction of Black Diamond is featured atop a mound of dirt. Below the buffalo’s image are engravings for the purity, metal content, and weight of the round.
The 1/10 oz Buffalo Silver Round is minted at various facilities throughout the United States. The reverse side of the coin often features the name of the mint engraved above the image of the buffalo. Because various mints produce this round, the name differs from one round to the next.
