** The Buffalo Nickel is one of the most popular historic coin designs from the United States Mint. Introduced during the administration of President William Howard Taft in 1913, the coin was designed by James Earle Fraser and was the last image on the nickel prior to the debut of the current Thomas Jefferson design. The Buffalo Nickel has been replicated on a wide range of modern bullion pieces, including new silver rounds from Asahi Refining. Right now, 1 oz Asahi Buffalo Silver Rounds are available to purchase online from Royalty Precious Metals.

The Buffalo Nickel was introduced in 1913 by the United States Mint. The design was created by James Earle Fraser, a native of Winona, Minnesota. He used his experiences growing up in the Upper Midwest and Central Plains in selecting designs representative of the indigenous tribes of North America.
On the obverse side of 1 oz Asahi Buffalo Silver Rounds is the bust of an indigenous figure. This tribal figure is shown with a stoic look on his face and braided hair that has feathers woven into it. There is an inscription of “Liberty” on this side that reflects some of the original elements from the Buffalo Nickel. There is also an Asahi Mint mint mark.
The reverse field of Asahi Buffalo Silver Rounds features the iconic American bison. The largest land mammal in North America, the bison was vital to the culture and survival of the tribes that inhabited the American Plains. The American bison shown here is in left-profile relief on a mound of dirt with its large hump above its shoulders and shaggy mane captured in brilliant detail. Fraser used Black Diamond, a resident bison of the Central Park Zoo in the 20th century, as inspiration for his design.
