The buffalo nickel, introduced in 1913, swiftly became a beloved design, capturing the essence of the American frontier. James Earl Fraser’s vision aimed to embody the spirit of the nation’s history and rugged beauty. Despite its popularity, the design was retired in 1938, succeeded by the Jefferson nickel, as challenges in minting and durability arose. Nonetheless, collectors covet the Buffalo nickel for its timeless beauty and nostalgic significance.
On the obverse, a dignified Native American gazes to the right, masterfully captured by Highland Mint with intricate details in the feathers, braids, and determined expression. This design, a fusion of three Native American models, reflects Fraser’s artistic vision. The Highland Mint’s mark is stamped at the bottom right, accompanied by the year at the bottom left.
The reverse features an image of an American bison, commonly referred to as a buffalo, inspired by the famed “Black Diamond” from the Bronx Zoo. The majestic portrayal captures the animal with a lowered head, emphasizing its massive size and dangerous-looking horns. The buffalo symbolizes the Old West, integral to Native American life yet viewed as an obstacle to western expansion. Below the image are inscriptions: ‘¼ TROY OUNCE’ and ‘.999 FINE SILVER,’ with Highland Mint’s mark to the bottom left.
