Golden State Mint Buffalo Rounds are brand new non-circulated copper rounds with a rendition of James Earle Fraser’s classic design of the Buffalo Nickel issued in 1913. Generally, Fraser’s Indian Head nickel design is regarded as among the best designs of any U.S. coins.
The obverse (front) of the round depicts a Native American and with the motto ”LIBERTY” on top right. The reverse (back) of the rounds depicts a standing American bison (buffalo) atop a mound of dirt. Supposedly, the bison was modeled after “Black Diamond” in the New York Central Park Zoo. The rounds are hallmark stamped with their weight, purity and Golden State Mint and have a reeded edge.
Since 1981, we’ve minted these rounds daily in silver due to their popularity, and now we offer them in copper! These lustrous rounds measure 47 mm in diameter and contain Two Avoirdupois (AVDP) Ounces of .999 Fine Copper. Golden State Mint offers mint-fresh, beautifully struck, one ounce copper rounds. These rounds are an excellent way to buy copper, are easily stacked and stored, and are perfect for investors and collectors alike.
