This 1 oz round, which will be released by the SilverTowne Mint of Indiana in 2015, commemorates the celebrated Buffalo Nickel that enjoyed circulation from 1913 to 1938. Each round has been masterfully struck from 1 troy oz of 99.9% pure silver and is guaranteed to be delivered in brand new condition. Customers, however, should be aware that while this round’s design was based on an actual coin, it has no legal tender value in the United States.
- Contains 1 oz of .999 pure silver.
- Minted at SilverTowne Mint in the United States.
- Features the famous Buffalo Nickel design.
For the round’s artwork, SilverTowne artists have made a great effort to replicate the details of James Earle Fraser’s original western design motif. Shown on the front of the round is a portrait of a proud Native American Warrior. As in the original design, he is turned in profile with a stern, yet noble expression on his face. In his hair, he wears the traditional feathers of his native tribe.
Also consistent with Fraser’s original design is the buffalo that appears on the reverse side of the round. From the curled texture of its coat to the rugged terrain beneath its cloven hooves, viewers are certain to appreciate the detailed rendering of this formidable creature and its western frontier habitat. Engraved in an arched formation above the majestic bovine is the phrase, “United States of America,” while the phrase beneath it reads, “E Pluribus Unum.” It is worth noting that the latter has been printed there in lieu of the motto, “In God We Trust,” which has been omitted entirely from the round’s design. Another engraving that has been altered on the reverse side of the round is a denomination, which usually appears underneath the image. It has been replaced by the round’s weight and purity.
The 2015 1 oz SilverTowne Buffalo Silver Round not only pays tribute to one of the US Mint’s most iconic pieces of currency, but it also honors a crucial time in this country’s history.
