Each of the 2016 10 oz Antique Finish Silver Hobo Nickel Statues in this product listing has a beautiful antique finish that adds warmth and depth to the overall design. Modern precious metal products have this antique appearance courtesy of a chemical treatment, making it possible to sell products with the appearance of age without waiting for wear and tear to occur naturally.
These 2016 10 oz Antique Finish Silver Hobo Nickel Statues are the third to be released in the Coins of the World collection. Previous releases, in order, include the American Silver Eagle statue that features the US Heraldic Eagle design, and the popular Ariana the Silver Fairy from the Silverbug silver rounds.
Paolo Curcio is the famed Mr. The, and the artist behind the designs on all five releases in the Silver Hobo Nickel Series. These rounds feature designs based upon actual creations from hobo artists in 19th and 20th century America.
In this 2016 10 oz Silver Hobo Nickel Statue you find a hobo walking along the tracks of a rocky embankment. He is carrying all of his worldly possessions in a sack slung over his shoulder, and his clothes are worn and tattered; from his hat on his head to the hole in his shoes.
This particular design of the hobo comes straight from the reverse side of the second round in the Hobo Nickel Series, known as the Train. American hobo artists often targeted American circulation nickels because they were readily available due to their lower denomination and had a larger surface area than pennies.
