Between 1913 and 1938 the United States minted Indian Head Nickels. This Buffalo Indian design remains one of the most iconic in U.S. minting history. These Buffalo rounds are modeled after the famous James Earl Fraser design. It's back story makes it one of the most fascinating 1 ounce 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 really knows who the Native American featured in the picture actually is. Not even the man himself, (Fraser) could give an exact answer.
He wrote that a combination of three separate Native Americans were used; Iron Tail, Big Tree and Two Moons, but he could not remember for sure. Later many others had 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 where 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.
On the obverse, the Native American is a representation of the people Fraser was surrounded by and the portrait is not of one specific person. On the reverse, the image is of Black Diamond, a bison Fraser met at the zoo. Symbolically, Buffalo’s also mean sacred life and abundance – especially to the Native Americans’ and the image of the Bison has become of the United States’ national symbols. On the round’s obverse, the word ‘Liberty’ reinforces one of the American traditional values it has become famous for.
An American Bison or Buffalo is featured on the reverse. Similar to the Native American, the story behind the picture has been a long debate. Fraser was not 100% sure of the specific type of buffalo he had drawn. He had mentioned that it was none other than the famed American bison Black Diamond from the Central Park Menagerie. (Central Park Zoo) One Bronx Zoo employee suggested that Fraser may have used Bronx, the bison herd leader around that time.
The attractiveness of the design can be seen by exploring its history. In between 1913 and 1938, the United States used it on its nickel coins. As such, the rounds we are selling can be an attractive purchase both for collectors of silver bullion rounds, and people who buy coins to collect. You are also given the option to buy gold buffalo coins , versus the silver. This allows investors the option to stick with the design they like, but in a different metal.
