 E-mail this product to a friend


• Three Buffalo Nickels struck in .750 copper and ,250 nickel.

One Buffalo Nickel each from the Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco Mints.

• This set represents Buffalo Nickels from all three U.S. Mints that struck the coin.

• Coins are in hand-selected collectible condition; no specific dates are promised.

• Coin set is protectively displayed in a custom coin wallet with a Certificate of Authenticity. 

• The Buffalo Nickel is the most uniquely “American” coin;  it celebrates the culture and heritage of the American West.

• The coin was designed by sculptor James Earle Fraser, who was known for his dramatic images 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 a composite portrait of three Native American chiefs:  Iron Tail (a Sioux who fought against Custer at Little Bighorn and who was a star in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show), Two Moons (a Cheyenne who also fought at Little Bighorn), and John Big Tree (a Seneca).

• The back features a stunning image of a buffalo.

• The three different coins are identified by the mint marks. The Denver Mint’s “D” mint mark and San Francisco’s “S” mint mark are under the denomination on the reverse.

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

• The last Buffalo Nickel was minted over 70 years ago in 1938.  These coins 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, leaving few for today’s collectors.
