** One of America’s greatest classic coin designs is the Buffalo Nickel. Sometimes referred to in its day as the Indian Head Nickel, this design from James Earle Fraser was used on the nation’s 5-cent piece from 1913 to 1938, and today it is replicated on countless products ranging from the US Mint’s American Gold Buffalo bullion coin to silver rounds. Right now, the design is available to purchase from Royalty Precious Metals on the 1/2 oz SilverTowne Buffalo Silver Round.

James Earle Fraser’s design for the Buffalo Nickel was approved by the administration of President William Howard Taft in 1913. It replaced the Liberty Head Nickel and would go on to be one of America’s greatest coin designs of the 20th century. It was so popular that the US Mint revived it in 2006 for the gold bullion American Gold Buffalo Series. It is also popularly used by private mints on both silver rounds, silver bars, and copper bars.
Obverse design elements on these SilverTowne Buffalo Silver Rounds include the famous right-profile bust of an indigenous American. This tribal figure has a stoic look on his face and is said to have been created by Fraser using three different tribal figures as inspiration for the appearance of the figure.
Reverse visuals on 1 oz Buffalo Silver Rounds offer a glimpse of the power and majesty of the American bison. This depiction shows the bison in left-profile relief with its full frame featured standing atop a mound of dirt. The bison shown here was inspired by Black Diamond, a resident bison of the Central Park Zoo in 1913.
