The obverse does not feature a year of issue, and the reverse has no engraving of a face value. Otherwise, these rounds replicate the image of the Buffalo Nickels struck by the United States Mint’s San Francisco, Denver, and Philadelphia Mint’s between 1913 and 1938.
On the obverse of SilverTowne Buffalo Rounds is the right-profile portrait of a Native American tribal member. The individual has a solemn look on his face, with braided hair and a single feather woven into his hair. The word “Liberty” is featured along the right edge of the design field.
The reverse of 1 oz Silver SilverTowne Buffalo Rounds includes an image of Black Diamond. This bison was a resident of the Central Park Zoo in New York City in the early 20th century. The left-profile view of the bison is visible on a muddy mound, with engravings of “United States of America,” “E Pluribus Unum,” and “1 oz .999 Fine Silver.”
