The Buffalo Nickel was introduced in 1913 and ran from then until 1938. It was designed by James Earle Fraser. This coin was introduced as an attempt to make our money more beautiful. Fraser set out to make a truly American looking coin and he turned to two icons of the American West, Native Americans and the American Bison. 

 

On the obverse side of the coin is a proud Native American warrior. Fraser was asked many times where he got the inspiration for the Native American design or who modeled for the image. He claimed that it was perhaps a mashup of a few different Native Americans he had met and talked with namely a Sioux named “Iron Tail’, a Kiowa named ‘Big Tree’ and a Cheyenne named ‘Two Moons’.  Above the image is ‘LIBERTY’ in small letters and underneath the image is the date the coin was issued. 

 

The reverse has the image of the American Bison. Somewhere along the line, the American People called bison ‘buffalo’ and it stuck. All bison were referred to as ‘buffalo’ hence the nickname for this coin is  the Buffalo nickel. This particular ‘buffalo’ was inspired by a bison at the Bronx Zoo, Black Diamond, which he regarded as ‘typical and shaggy’. Above the image of the buffalo is ‘THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA’ and ‘IN GOD WE TRUST’. Under the image is ‘FIVE CENTS’. 

 

The buffalo nickel design was replaced 25 years after it was released because it didn’t wear well with some of the dates wearing off entirely.
