Many investors buy fine silver rounds for their ease of acquisition, high purity and strong collectability. For investors looking for exposure to silver, silver rounds are an excellent choice because they do not have the higher premiums associated with legal tender bullion. If you are starting a silver collection or adding silver to your portfolio, silver rounds are highly recommended. Produced in the United States, these silver rounds feature impressive .9999 pure silver content.
These Buffalo Silver Rounds feature the images from the historic Buffalo Nickel. The design was created in 1913 as the final redesign of American currency that started in 1907. The drive to beautify American coinage began during the administration of President Theodore Roosevelt, with the administration of President William Howard Taft deciding to replace one of the final coins with a 19th-century design.
The obverse face of the 1 oz Buffalo Silver Round includes the image of a stoic indigenous figure. This individual is shown in right-profile relief with a stoic gaze, braided hair, and feathers woven in at the back of his head. The silver rounds include an inscription of “Liberty” on this face just as the original Buffalo Nickel did.
On the reverse side of 1 oz Buffalo Silver Rounds, you will find the depiction of an American bison. Commonly known in the United States as a buffalo, the American bison is the largest land mammal in North America and once roamed vast expanses of the central and western United States. The design featured here puts the buffalo in left-profile relief as it stands on a small mound of dirt.
James Earle Fraser is the man behind the original Buffalo Nickel design. He was commissioned by the Taft Administration to redesign the nickel and he used his experiences growing up in Minnesota and the Dakotas to inspire his designs for the Buffalo Nickel. The nickel with his images was in production from 1913 to 1938.
