Silver Buffalo Rounds - The Buffalo Nickel has been a piece of American numismatic history since it was first minted. These rounds honor the heritage of the design of the Buffalo Nickel. The 1 oz Silver Round - Buffalo is a near replica of the original design, while the 2016 1 oz Silver Native American Mint $1 Sioux Indian is a modern interpretation of the design. Each round is beautifully designed and is made from 1 oz of .999 fine Silver.
A beautiful portrait of a young Sioux Warrior is shown on the $1 Sioux Indian. Meant to be a modern interpretation of the classic Buffalo Nickel design, this portrait was designed by famous Western artist Matthew Lanz, and adopted by the Dakota Sioux as "White Star Boy". The feathers attached to the Medicine Wheel are in a beautiful proof-like finish, adding significantly to the eye appeal when holding this artistic round. Shown on the reverse is a 19th Century Indian war shield. On the shield is a buffalo, tepee, and banner with the name of the tribe. The 8 Tepees represent the districts of the Oglala Sioux reservation.
The Silver Buffalo round is a contemporary round that pays tribute to the original Buffalo Nickel, or Indian Head Nickel, minted from 1913 to 1938. The original was not Silver bullion, but a copper-nickel five-cent piece designed by James Earle Fraser. The Native American/Buffalo design used was in use for 25 years on the Buffalo Nickel, and then disappeared until 2001, when the American Buffalo Commemorative coin was released. When you buy Precious Metals like Silver Buffalo rounds for your investment portfolio, you are also buying a piece of U.S. history.
