The Asahi Buffalo Silver Round is a true celebration of one of America’s most cherished coin designs, the Buffalo Nickel. First minted in 1913, during the administration of President William Howard Taft, the Buffalo Nickel was the brainchild of James Earle Fraser, a native of Winona, Minnesota. Fraser drew upon his experiences growing up in the Upper Midwest and Central Plains to create designs that paid homage to the indigenous tribes of North America. And now, Asahi Refining, with its global footprint rooted in Tokyo, Japan and locations in North America, has brought this iconic design back to life in the form of a 1 oz silver round.
Each round is a masterpiece of craftsmanship, with proof visuals that are in new condition from the mint and feature frosted designs overlaying mirrored fields. The contrast between the two elements of the design is truly breathtaking. On the obverse, you’ll find the bust of an indigenous figure, depicted with a stoic expression and braided hair adorned with feathers. An inscription of “Liberty” on this side is a nod to the original elements of the Buffalo Nickel. And on the reverse, the iconic American bison is captured in brilliant detail, its large hump above its shoulders and shaggy mane rendered with skill and precision.
