About the silver buffalo design
The buffalo nickel debuted from the United States Mint in 1913. It was designed by celebrated artist James Earle Fraser during the Taft presidency (who’s usually remembered as our fattest President). Fraser brought his life’s experience growing up on the plains of Minnesota and the Dakotas to bear in the design. A native of Winona, Minnesota, Fraser traveled extensively throughout the West during the long sunset of the frontier days along with his father. The pair encountered sparse bands of American bison and met with a number of Native American tribes.
Fraser’s masterpiece was released in 1913. Despite its masterful design, the buffalo nickel was so poorly received by numismatists that the U.S. Mint pulled the plug on it after 25 years, the minimum circulating timeframe for any coin. The original nickels suffered from a mistake of measurements. They were what we’d today call “high-relief” coins, meaning that elements of their designs rose above the protective rim of the coin. This led to rapid wear of two key elements: the date on the obverse, and the coin’s face value on the reverse.
Even though the buffalo nickel is celebrated and commemorated today, during its original mintage, it was considered a failure. That’s a real shame, and we’re thrilled that Fraser’s epic work is commemorated in so many different forms today!
