Description from Golden State Mint
Golden State Mint Buffalo Rounds are brand new, non-circulated silver 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.
