Each 2022 Indian Head Black Ruthenium Tribute Coin offered here at Silver.com celebrates the beauty of the designs from the historic Indian Head Nickel and the modern Gold American Buffalo coin. These tribute coins are available with protective capsules and a small display stand so you can show off your tribute coin. There is also a Certificate of Authenticity available with your purchase.
Tribute coins are not legal tender pieces nor precious metals coins. The coin itself is a standard metallic alloy. However, it is finished with two beautiful layers of valuable metals. The designs of the indigenous figure and the American bison are clad with 24-karat gold, while the background field has an application of black ruthenium to create beautiful contrast between the visual elements of the tribute coin.
On the obverse of 2022 Indian Head Black Ruthenium Tribute Coins is James Earle Fraser’s depiction of a Native American. This indigenous figure is not based on one individual, but rather, is inspired by the physical features of three different real-life figures from the early 20th century. The design shows the figure in right-profile relief with the markings commonly found on the Gold American Buffalo.
The reverse side of the 2022 Indian Head Black Ruthenium Tribute Coin comes with an image of the American bison. The largest land mammal in North America, the bison is shown here in left-profile relief on a small mound of dirt. As with the obverse side, this side of the coin includes markings similar to that of the Gold Buffalo. The lone difference is the word COPY, an indication that this is a tribute coin.
