Mr. The’s experience with skeletal designs dates back to 2012, and he has already established himself as a master of skeletal renditions of historic coins. All Silver Hobo Nickel Rounds in this five-round series offer a play on the Buffalo Nickel, and this round is no exception.
Through a combination of Skulls and Scrolls, Mr. The creates an eerie version of the famous Buffalo Nickel design from James Earle Fraser. These rounds are highlighted by the unique rim of te coin, which includes a tattered scroll look, while both the primary obverse and reverse designs are featured in skeletal form.
On the obverse face of the 1 oz Silver Proof Skulls and Scrolls Hobo Nickel Round you’ll find an image similar to Fraser’s Native American Chieftain, instead finished in a skeletal design.
The reverse side of the round has the walking hobo image introduced as a common design element on this side in the previous release in the series. Unlike the second round in the series, the reverse walking hobo on these 1 oz Silver Proof Skulls and Scrolls Hobo Nickel Rounds have a skeletal figure instead.
As with other proof releases in the series, you’ll receive your Skull and Scrolls Hobo Nickel Round from Silver.com in a protective plastic capsule with a Certificate of Authenticity. ON the edge of the coin you’ll find the weight, purity, and metal content engraved along with a unique serial number.
