When it was first struck back in 1913, the Buffalo Nickel was hailed as the most quintessentially American of coins. The new nickel with the stunning Indian Head on one side and majestic Buffalo on the other was part of a U.S. Mint drive to beautify our coinage, and in so doing, they created one of the great coins of America.
Now, we are saluting this magnificent coin with our brand new Buffalo Nickel Precious Metals Collection. We’ve taken three authentic, U.S. Government Buffalo nickels from the 1930’s and enhanced them with three of the earth’s most precious metals – precious silver, pure 24KT gold and rare black ruthenium. Ruthenium is a metal in the platinum family that is 75 times rarer than silver and creates an inky black effect on the coin!
The result is a 3-coin set highlighting the most beautiful features of this classic design. Enjoy the sculptural reliefs of the American Indian and Buffalo dazzlingly layered in 24 KT gold, precious silver, and black ruthenium as they seem to float against clad fields of either black ruthenium or 24 KT gold. You’ll find each combination uniquely beautiful and oh-so-collectible.
The 3-coin Buffalo Nickel Precious Metals Collection comes complete with Certificate of Authenticity verifying its U.S. legal tender status and precious metal content for the affordable price of only $39.95. Each coin is handsomely showcased in an acrylic capsule for protection and display. Due to anticipated demand, we must limit orders to no more than 5 sets during this offer.
