First used on Nickels from 1913-1938, the American Buffalo design beloved by collectors worldwide was revived in 2001 with the American Buffalo Silver Commemorative coin. Issued with both Mint state and Proof finishes, these 90% Silver commemorative coins contains .7734oz of pure silver. Created by the renowned sculptor James Earle Fraser, the Native American depicted on the obverse is believed to be the result of three different Indian chiefs who posed for Fraser in the early 1890s. Legend also says the buffalo shown on the reverse was modeled after the North American Bison named Black Diamond who resided in the central Park Zoo from 1893-1910. While no one knows for sure who exactly his models were, his designs rendered have become 20th century masterpieces ingrained into the fabric of American culture. This iconic pair of commemorative silver dollars have been certified by NGC as MS & PF 69 and are of exceptional quality. Quantities are very limited so do not miss your chance to own a piece of Americas legacy from the old west.
