One of the most revered designs ever featured on an American coin came courtesy of James Earle Fraser. A gifted artist, he created the images used on the obverse and reverse sides of the famed Indian Head Nickel. First introduced in 1913, the coin is currently the inspiration for a 24-karat gold sovereign coin from the US Mint, as well as several silver rounds. Now, a new 1/10 oz Great American Mint Buffalo Silver Round is available from Wallace Precious Metals.

James Earle Fraser created the Indian Head nickel design in 1913. Also referred to as the Buffalo Nickel, his design was inspired by real-life sources. The buffalo featured on one side is a depiction of Black Diamond, a resident bison at New Yorks Central Park Zoo in the early 20th century. The image of a Native American tribal chieftain was actually a composite of three real-world figures alive in the early 20th century.
Frasers design was one of the most popular circulation currency images ever used in the US, and is currently featured on the American Gold Buffalo from the United States Mint. This 1/10 oz Great American Mint Buffalo Silver Round is a brand-new product from GAM, which already offers the Buffalo Silver Round in a 1 oz weight.
On the reverse side of the silver round is the image of Black Diamond, with United States of America engraved above his head. E Pluribus Unum is engraved near the animals hind quarters, and the coins weight, purity, and metal content are included below.
The obverse side of the 1/10 oz Great American Mint Buffalo Silver Round features the famous tribal chieftains right-profile image. The lone engraving on this side of the coin reads Liberty, and is set along the right side of the coin in a vertical position.
The Great American Mint is a private facility in Anaheim, California. Though it is well-known for its silver rounds and bars, it also provides high quality blanks to sovereign mints across the globe.
