The Buffalo Mint ¼ oz Silver Round from the Highland Mint is a beautiful homage to one of the most iconic, authentic coins ever designed-the Buffalo Nickel. This coin is created with razor-sharp detail in ¼ oz of .999 bullion quality fine silver. At nearly twice the size of the original buffalo nickel, this design never looked better. 


Key features:

  • Made of 1/4 troy oz .999 fine silver 
  • James Earl Fraser design
  • Obverse has a Native American
  • Reverse side has an American bison commonly referred to as a buffalo
  • Reeded edge


The coin commonly known as the buffalo nickel was released in 1913 and quickly became a hit design. James Earl Fraser set out to create a coin that captured the American frontier and the reception it received certainly shows that the people loved it. This design ran until 1938 when the coin was replaced with the Jefferson nickel. The design was replaced due to the fact that it was hard to create coins with it and it didn’t wear very well. Collectors still seek after the Buffalo nickel to add to their collection for the beautiful design and the nostalgia that it brings. 


On the obverse side of the coin is a stoic Native American looking to the right. The Highland Mint has done a superb job capturing all the detail of this design from the feathers in his hair and the ties where the braid begins to the lines in his face where we see his lips pulled straight in a look of determination.  This is James Earl Fraser’s design which he created after having three different Native Americans sit as models. The resulting image is a combination of all three men.   The Highland Mint’s mark is stamped at the bottom right. The year is at the bottom left. 


The reverse side has an image of an American bison which is commonly referred to as a buffalo. This buffalo was inspired by a famous buffalo at the Bronx Zoo, “Black Diamond”. In the image, we can see the animal with its head lowered. The majesty of the beast is detailed from its massive size and horns that suggest danger to its beautiful curly hair around its head. The buffalo is a symbol of the old west as it was an important part of the Native Americans’ source of food and clothing but was seen as an impedance to the western expansion. This difference in ideals is what led to many battles between the early settlers and Native Americans. Below the image of the buffalo is ‘¼ TROY OUNCE’ and ‘.999 FINE SILVER’. To the bottom left is Highland Mint’s mark.


This is your opportunity to own a round with the Buffalo Nickel design on it at a very reasonable price and take home some quality silver at the same time. Get yours today.
