The 1/2 oz. Buffalo Silver Round is minted with .999 fine silver and depicts two of the legendary icons of Americas past. Each image represents both the beauty and the tragedy of Americas expansionist past, paying homage to the struggles of the country and the issues it has fought to overcome. Random year and design.
The Buffalo Silver Round pays tribute to Americas native tribes and the majestic, once endangered buffalo. James Earle Fraser’s design for the Buffalo Nickel has inspired both of the images featured on this round. The Native American face featured on one side is a visual composition of three different tribal chiefs: Iron Tail (Lakota), Two Moons (Cheyenne), and John Big Tree (Seneca). His buffalo design on the opposite side depicts an American bison that called the Central Park Zoo in New York City its home in the early 1900s.
