Buy Massive 5 Oz Buffalo Silver Rounds from Money Metals Exchange

One of the most beautiful coins in US history, the Buffalo nickel remains very popular among numismatists. Nowadays, numerous private mints produce silver rounds and bars inspired by the original Buffalo nickel design.  

5 Oz Buffalo silver rounds are affordable and will make a striking addition to any investor's stack.

These rounds are minted in the USA by the Highland Mint.  Rounds may have a similar obverse and reverse design as a coin, but they do not have a date and carry no face value. This means a round isn’t legal tender or denominated in a government currency.  The advantage of rounds is their cost. Investors can save several dollars per ounce and still get pure silver which is highly liquid and trusted everywhere they may wish to sell later.


The story of the Buffalo silver rounds begins more than 100 years ago. Back in 1911 and out of a dissatisfaction with their design, President Theodore Roosevelt prompted the US Mint to replace the coins of the time. The mint selected the acclaimed sculptor James Earle Fraser to design the five-cent coin.

The new nickel was finally introduced in 1913 as a replacement for the Charles E. Barber-designed Liberty Head coin. The coin became known as the Buffalo nickel after the portrait of a buffalo on the reverse. It’s also known as the Indian Head nickel for one of the most iconic depictions of Native Americans in US coinage.

The buffalo on the reverse is widely believed to be none other than Black Diamond, the buffalo in the Central Park Menagerie. An employee of the Bronx Zoo claimed that Fraser might have used Bronx, a buffalo kept in the Bronx Zoo. The name of the bison on the coin, however, remains a mystery.

The American Indian portrait on the obverse of the coin is a combination of three different portraits Fraser had done: portraits of Iron Tail, Two Moons, and Big Tree. In subsequent years, a number of Native Americans claimed that they were the model for the famous nickel.

5 Oz Buffalo Silver Round Design

Today’s current production Buffalo silver rounds are faithful to the classic design of the Buffalo nickel. 

Buffalo rounds come in a variety of sizes. The most common is the one troy ounce silver round with 99.9% purity. Depending on the manufacturer, you might find ½ ounce, ¼ ounce, and even smaller rounds. All, however, share the same design.

On the obverse of Buffalo rounds is the right profile of the aforementioned Indian head. The portrait is a faithful reproduction of Fraser’s original design. The reverse features the left side of a buffalo on a small mound of dirt. Like the obverse design, the reverse is also a faithful replica of Fraser’s work. The buffalo is usually accompanied by the inscriptions, “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” at the top and “5 TROY OZ. .999 FINE SILVER,” at the bottom.


The five troy ounce rounds weigh 155.518 grams. The rounds measure a whopping 3.5" in diameter. The edges of the round are reeded.

The 1 oz Silver Buffalo Rounds weigh 31.103 grams. The round is 1.535 inches (39mm) in diameter. 

The 1/2 oz Silver Buffalo Rounds weigh 15.515 grams. The round is 1.09 inches in diameter. 

The 1/4 oz Silver Buffalo Rounds weigh 7.775 grams. They measure 0.984 inches in diameter. 

The 1/10 oz Silver Buffalo Rounds contain 3.1103 grams of 99.9% pure silver. The rounds measure 0.774 inches in diameter.

Should I Invest in 1 Oz Buffalo Silver Rounds?

Silver rounds are far more affordable than silver coins. They are a good starting point for beginner investors. Use them to diversify your portfolio, preserve your wealth, or profit when silver prices go up.
