Don’t miss your opportunity to own this tribute to the iconic 1913 buffalo head nickel from the prestigious Asahi Refinery! Each round is beautifully struck in .999 fine silver in a unique reverse proof format. This means that the design in struck in a mirror-like proof finish and the background is struck in a matte finish.
The obverse is akin to James Earle Fraser’s portrait of a Native American chieftain that appeared on the iconic 1913 Buffalo Nickel. It’s believed that this design unites the facial features of three Native American chiefs: Two Moons of the Cheyenne, Big Tree of the Kiowa, and Iron Tail of the Lakota Sioux. LIBERTY and the Asahi mint mark are also inscribed
The reverse features a profile view of Black Diamond, the famous 1,550-pound American Bison that once lived at the Bronx Zoo in New York. The great buffalo, which gives the original coin its name, is depicted standing on a mound. ONE TROY OUNCE and .999 SILVER are also inscribed.
Reverse proof buffalo’s produced by Asahi Refining come packaged in tubes of 20.
