1 oz Silver Round Coin History:
These 1 oz silver rounds feature the American Buffalo. The American Buffalo bullion coin was designed by a once student of Saint Gaudens, James Earle Fraser to showcase the beauty of the Native American West. The obverse side of the silver round American Buffalo features the profile of a Native American man, while the reverse side features the silhouette of an American bison standing in profile, modeled after "Black Diamond," a popular attraction in the New York Zoological Gardens in the early part of the 20th century. The images were originally featured on the popular "Indian Head" or "Buffalo" nickel, minted in the U.S. from 1913 to 1938.
