When it comes to the designs of the Silver Hobo Nickel Round series, the Green Fairy and Fishbones is the most unique. Previous releases highlighted the hobo artistic culture of America in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, in particular the unique additions hobo artists would carve into circulation US currency.
The favorite target of these hobbyists and artistic laymen was the Buffalo Nickel, and Mr. The’s previous designs in the Hobo Nickel Round series featured creative takes on those original artworks. In the 5 oz Antique Silver Green Fairy and Fishbones Hobo Nickel Round release, along with the other two weights/finishes, you see a totally different approach.
On the obverse of each round is the image of a scantily clad Green Fairy in the center, holding a cup of intoxicating brew in her left hand that features a strange steam emanating from its surface. Engravings include “Liberty” and “1937,” which was the second to the last year of production for the original Buffalo Nickel.
The reverse of the 5 oz Antique Silver Green Fairy and Fishbones Hobo Nickel Round includes the haunting image of a deep-sea dwelling fish that is stripped of all its skin. Only the bones and carcass are visible floating in the aquatic background of the design.
Each of these Green Fairy and Fishbones Hobo Nickel Rounds includes an antique finish, which adds depth and warmth to the overall appearance of the design. Additional versions of the Green Fairy and Fishbones release include a 1 oz Silver Proof and a 1 oz Silver Antique.
These silver rounds all feature edge lettering denoting their serial number, weight, and purity. The included Certificate of Authenticity validates those factors and provides value to any collector.
