The Buffalo Nickel, a coin with deep historical roots, was first minted in 1913 by the United States Mint. The artist James Earle Fraser, hailing from Winona, Minnesota, drew inspiration from his upbringing in the Upper Midwest and Central Plains to craft a design that paid homage to the indigenous tribes of North America.
On the obverse side of the 1 oz Asahi Buffalo Silver Rounds, you’ll encounter the dignified visage of an indigenous figure. This tribal figure exudes strength and resilience, with braided hair adorned by intricately woven feathers. The word “Liberty” is inscribed, echoing the original Buffalo Nickel design, and the round proudly bears the Asahi Mint’s mint mark.
Turning to the reverse field of Asahi Buffalo Silver Rounds, you’ll encounter the iconic American bison, a symbol of paramount importance to the tribes inhabiting the American Plains. This portrayal captures the bison in left-profile relief, perched on a mound of earth, with its massive hump and shaggy mane meticulously detailed. Fraser took inspiration from Black Diamond, a bison resident at the Central Park Zoo in the 20th century, when creating this enduring design.
