Considered the most distinctively American of all US coin designs, the Buffalo nickel celebrates our country's westward expansion. Legend states, artist James Earle Fraser used a composite American Indian profile to create the noble obverse, and depicted docile bison Black Diamond, famous denizen of the Central Park Zoo, on the reverse. The coin was minted from 1913 to 1938 and even today remains a nostalgic favorite. The Buffalo Nickel Coin Set contains a Buffalo Nickel from the Denver, Philadelphia and San Francisco Mints. The set also contains a Buffalo Nickel from the 1910s, the 1920s and the 1930s. This proud collection is displayed in a protective, gold, book style portfolio. A Certificate of Authenticity is included.
