Product Description: Buffalo 1/10 oz Silver Round
Silver rounds present an attractive option for investors seeking to enhance their silver holdings without the higher premiums associated with silver coins. Beyond cost considerations, silver rounds often provide a wider range of designs, including special editions like annual “holiday rounds,” making them ideal for both gifting and personal investment. The Buffalo 1/10 Oz Silver Round exemplifies the advantages of silver rounds, featuring iconic imagery of a noble buffalo and a Native American chief.
This silver round draws inspiration from a familiar set of images deeply ingrained in American culture—the Buffalo nickel, originally minted by the United States Mint and featuring the same compelling images. However, the Buffalo nickel was only produced for a limited period, from 1913 to 1938, restricting collectors’ opportunities to acquire this distinctive pairing of two quintessential American symbols. Fortunately, the Highland Mint has secured the rights to these beloved designs, reimagining them in a new series of silver rounds characterized by exceptional purity and aesthetic appeal.

The obverse depiction of the Buffalo 1/10 Oz Silver Round holds enduring appeal, echoing the popularity of the Buffalo Nickel, one of the most cherished American coins in its denomination. The obverse design portrays what some may consider a ‘stereotypical’ Native American man, crafted by artist James Earle Fraser, who drew inspiration from three notable Native American chiefs: Iron Tail, Big Tree, and Two Moons.
The reverse of this round derives its name from the majestic American buffalo, symbolizing the challenges faced by the species in early U.S. history. Details such as the weight (.10 Troy Ounce), purity (.999), and material (silver) are inscribed on this side. The Highland Mint’s signature “HM” confirms the minting authority. The round’s fractional denomination is advantageous for collectors valuing increased financial liquidity.
The Buffalo 1/10 Oz Silver Round serves as a nostalgic homage to American history, these are considered a great alternative to 90% Junk Silver dimes or quarters.
