** The Buffalo Nickel was one of America’s most beloved circulation coin designs. Appearing on the 5-cent piece from 1913 to 1938, Americans carried around a nickel coin with a Native American and Buffalo on the faces of the coin long before President Thomas Jefferson graced the coin’s faces.

James Earle Fraser was an American sculptor who created countless public monuments and private works during the early 20th century. He was also one of many sculptors commissioned by the federal government and US Mint to help revitalize American coin design during the first two decades of the 20th century.
On the obverse of these 1/10 oz Buffalo Silver Rounds, you’ll find the image of an indigenous tribal leader from North America. The figure is captured in right-profile relief and wears braided hair down his shoulder with two feathers woven into his braid at the top of his head. The word “Liberty” is engraved on this side.
Fraser was a native of Winona, Minnesota, and spent much of his childhood on the plains of the Midwest and Upper Midwest following his father around. His father, Thomas Fraser, was an engineer working for the railroad companies laying tracks across Minnesota, the Dakotas, Nebraska, and Kansas to the American West.
The reverse of the 1/10 oz Buffalo Silver Rounds from various U.S. Mints include the design known as Black Diamond. The American bison depicted here stands on a mound of dirt and was inspired by a real-life bison of the same name which resided at the Central Park Zoo in New York City during the early 20th century.
