2017 Buffalo Replica 5 Troy Ounces (oz) .999 Fine Silver Medallion
Fill the entire palm of your hand with this larger version of the popular Buffalo Nickel, also known as the Indian Head Nickel, which was officially minted from 1913-1938, this replica is custom minted at the SilverTowne Mint and weighs in at an impressive 5 troy ounces!
The concept for the Buffalo Replica round is of course modeled after the U.S. Buffalo Nickel designed by James Earle Fraser, a one-time student and assistant of the legendary designer/sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Fraser stated in a radio interview that his goal for the new design was to come up with something uniquely American. "When I was asked to do the nickel, I felt I wanted to do something totally American - a coin that could not be mistaken for any other country's coin. It occurred to me that the buffalo, as part of the western background, was 100 percent American, and that our North American Indian fit into the picture perfectly."
Like the Buffalo Nickel, the obverse of the 5oz Buffalo Replica depicts a Native American, along with inscriptions "LIBERTY" and the current year-date "2017". The animal featured on the reverse of both the coin and the replica is actually a bison, not a buffalo, but the American Bison is popularly called a buffalo due to the similarities between the two species. Inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA", "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "5 TROY OZ .999 FINE SILVER".
