Half Ounce Buffalo Silver Rounds for Sale

Now the famous Buffalo design can be had in a smaller half-ounce denomination. These .999 fine silver ½ ounce Buffalo Silver Rounds (1/2 troy oz silver) are ideal for silver stackers looking to add fractional silver to their holding.

Inspired by the Legendary Buffalo Nickel Design

Between 1913 and 1938 the United States minted the iconic "Indian Head" or "Buffalo" nickel. This design remains one of the most iconic in U.S. minting history. These half-oz silver Buffalo rounds are modeled after the famous James Earl Fraser design. Its back story makes it one of the most fascinating pure silver bullion rounds to buy.

Featuring James Earle Fraser’s design of an American Buffalo and a Native American, the American Silver Buffalo Rounds depict some of the imagery associated with America’s rich history. No one knows who the Native American featured in the picture is, not even the man himself (Fraser) could give an exact answer.

He wrote that a combination of three separate Native Americans was used: Iron Tail, Big Tree, and Two Moons, but he could not remember for sure. Later, many others are self-proclaimed to be the model for Fraser's coin. After all these years, there's still no official answer as to who holds the honor of gracing the obverse of these beautiful rounds. Fraser himself was part of Native American life, living in Winona, Minnesota, during an era when Native Americans were being forced west or into colonies during the 19th and 20th centuries.

Fraser’s design seems to be a depiction of the images memorable to him during his life on the frontier. He seems to have chosen a design depicting what American life meant to him and, therefore, the imagery of the American Buffalo and Native American symbolize two key features and sets of characters within his own life.

Why Buy Buffalo Design Silver Rounds?

History teaches that fiat (paper) currencies die – often spectacularly. Governments cannot resist the temptation to borrow and print beyond their means. Eventually, they turn to the printing press, trying to maintain the illusion the promises made by politicians are being kept. The effort fails when people using the currency discover it is a bad idea to hold the devaluing paper and rush to trade it for actual goods.

Confidence fails and the currency dies.

Most people expect that can’t happen here in the United States. “King Dollar” is the world reserve currency and has been for decades. But the consequences of perpetual overborrowing and overspending are inevitable.

Smart investors are preparing for the possibility of a dollar collapse by purchasing physical gold and silver for sale online or by phone. 

Our half-ounce silver Buffalo rounds are a great option for concerned investors. The smaller size means they are well suited for making payments in small transactions, or to make change - just what is often needed in barter situations. Every round is stamped with its weight and .999 purity - making it easy for anyone to quickly determine the value. 

Given the low premium and versatile size, every investor should consider adding some ½ ounce rounds to their stack. Other silver products with low premiums, would be silver dimes and quarters, which are great for investors who aren't worried about the look of their bullion since these coins will have normal wear and tear. If you're not that type of investor, then stick to the Buffalo rounds. 

The beautiful design and craftsmanship in our rounds are a great bonus. Whether you are re-selling them to a dealer, or trading them to a neighbor, your counterparty is going to be thrilled to get them.
