The rugged Wild West images emblazoned on America’s Buffalo Nickel are so iconic that in 2006 when the United States Mint began striking its $50 gold bullion coin, mint officials selected James Earle Frazer’s iconic designs that had last been seen in 1938, the last year of the Buffalo Nickel. Collectors all over the world have enjoyed seeking out these popular coins and artists, designers and mints have been inspired by the classic designs. And now for 2021, an amazing numismatic treasure has been crafted that reimagines the design in a whole new way!
A Buffalo Design That Means Business
Struck in a full ounce of highly pure 99.9% fine silver, this release offers a new take on an old classic. It used the famous Buffalo Nickel as its inspiration and substitutes a portrait of Lakota Sioux Chief Sitting Bull in full headdress on the obverse against a background of traditional Sioux patterning. Like the Buffalo Nickel, this silver round’s reverse shows a wooly American Bison — only THIS hairy behemoth is not a stationary critter; it’s depicted charging across the plains, its head down and its horns thrust forward as if it means business. Around the rim of the round are the words, “LIBERTY,” “INDEPENDENCE” and “FREEDOM.”
Exquisite Reverse Proof Finish
These designs take on a unique appearance thanks to exquisite Reverse Proof finish. The opposite of a regular Proof that features frosted details rising over mirror-like fields, a Reverse Proof finish boasts mirror-like details rising over beautifully frosted fields! And, while this silver round is not a legal tender coin, this silver dollar-sized beauty does feature its silver weight and purity on the obverse just above the portrait of Sitting Bull.
