About Buffalo Head Nickel

The Buffalo head nickel is one of the most celebrated coins among collectors. Designed in 1913 by naturalist James Earle Fraser, this coin was the first U.S. coin to feature an animal other than the bald eagle. On the obverse side, the coin depicts a Native American. This coin ran from 1913 to 1938, and over one billion Buffalo head nickels were minted during this time.Historical ironies regarding the minting of the Buffalo head nickel abound. These coins depict Native American and buffaloes as esteemed and proud. However, the actions of the U.S. government during the period from 1913 to 1938 were anything but conservationist. The government eroded the few remaining freedoms of Native Americans, and hunters decimated wild buffalo populations.Historical ironies aside, however, the coin maintains a unique fascination among collectors. The first minting during 1913 had to be stopped because the raised buffalo on the coin was giving the minting machines trouble. Production on a second version of the buffalo nickel, called the Type II series, began later on that year and featured the buffalo alone on a field.Rarities exist. One of the most valuable and hard to find variations is the 1918/7-D overdate mistake. Another curiosity is the 1937 D three-legged Buffalo. A dye involved in the minting process failed, and one of the Buffalo's legs was left out. This buffalo is a comical oddity and also an extremely valuable collector's piece. The composition of the typical buffalo nickel is 3/4 copper and 1/4 nickel. In 2004, the U.S. Mint began the Westward Journey Nickel Series™ in honor of the bicentennials of the Louisiana Purchase and the Lewis and Clark expedition. In 2005, the Mint released the first Buffalo head nickel in close to 70 years. This commemorative coin features a new image of Jefferson on the obverse and an American bison on the reverse.
