Mr The's (Paolo Curcio) original carving was sculpted over a period of two days at the Original Hobo Nickel Society's booth during the 2012 FUN convention in Orlando. The base for this design was the 1937 Buffalo Nickel. Mr The's hobo Nickels typically yield between $500 and $2,500 per one-sided design.

The hobo nickel is a coin that has had its original artwork altered into a new design by the homeless, often referred to as hobos, and then sold to make money. The U.S. nickel is a favorite coin to use due to the softness, size and thickness of the coin.

When the Buffalo nickel, or Indian Head, was introduced in 1913, it became popular among coin engravers. The large Native American head gave the artists a large template to work from that allowed finer detail work to be done. With this large template to work from, the hobo nickel became highly popular. Due to the softness of the metal in the nickel, hobo nickel tools could be made from any crude tool that could make a scratch, displace or punch into the coin.

The artwork of each hobo nickel is unique. Some hobo nickel artists would repeat specific designs due to their popularity, but most tried to create something new with each coin. Whether you are a veteran hobo nickel collector, or you are looking to start a hobo nickel collection, these Silver hobo nickel replicas at APMEX are perfect for you.

Cool Pieces

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I like these replica hobo nickels because they represent a really neat piece of the disappearing Americana. The original hobo nickels are pieces of art made my the various vagabonds and field hands as they crisscrossed the country. Product comes in a protective case with a certificate of authenticity. These coins would be a great gift for anyone interested in the history of America.

A classic....

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I have performed as a hobo clown for many years and aware of both the hard working history as well as the entertainment value in vaudeville type programs, think Red Skelton Freddy the Freeloader or The little tramp. This, for me is a personal collection piece, like the Norman Rockwell 4 Freedoms from the 70s, yes that is 1970s (74-75). May not be the popular pirate theme that seems everywhere today but a great collection set.... Thank you for offering these.


  • Pros
  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Mint Condition
  • Cons
  • Generic Brand
  • Bottom Line
  • Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
