• The Buffalo Nickel is the most uniquely “American” coin.

• It celebrates the culture and heritage of the American West.

• The designs are some of the most beautiful and artistic ever to appear on a U.S. coin.

• The coin was minted form 1913-1938.

• The front of the Buffalo Nickel depicts an Indian chief.

• The back features a stunning image of a buffalo.

• The coin was designed by sculptor James Earle Fraser, who was known for his dramatic images of the American west.

• This set includes two coins – one from the Philadelphia Mint and one from the Denver Mint.

• Denver Mint’s “D” mint mark is under the denomination on the reverse.

• There is no mint mark on the Philadelphia Mint coin.

• Both coins are richly layered in pure 24 karat gold.

• The gold-plated Buffalo Nickels were not available from the U.S. Mint but are available only through special offers like this.

• The U.S. Mint does not have the ability to gold-plate coins, so the gold plating was applied privately.

• Gold plating both protects the coins and enhances the designs.

• Buffalo Nickels disappeared from circulation generations ago.

• Most Buffalo Nickels were worn or damaged in circulation or were destroyed by the U.S. Government when the Jefferson Nickel was introduced in 1938.

• There are two coins;  they were struck in .750 copper and .250 nickel, then plated in 24 karat gold. 

• The coins come in a custom display wallet with a Certificate of Authenticity.
