2021 Liberty Trade Buffalo

in LeoFinance2 months ago

I got this silver round from Apmex. They exclusively distributed this round. This is the first year of its production.

2021 Liberty Trade Buffalo- 1 oz Silver Round

The obverse depicts a Native American with date, weight, and purity, and the reverse show a buffalo in an aggressive stance, outlined by the words Liberty, Independence, and Freedom.

It is a modern take on a classic favorite. James Earle Fraser’s design for the 1913 Buffalo Nickel has inspired both images featured on this round.

It is also my favorite design in coins!

Buffalo Nickel

So iconic!

I don't collect coins if it isn't silver or gold. But I'll collect these non-silver Buffalo Nickels coins because I think they are iconic.

But do you know that there are silver nickels? Yes, silver nickels!

Silver War Nickels

Here's a bit of American history:

About 10 months into the U.S. involvement in World War II that begins in December 1941 after the Pearl Harbor attack, the United States Mint began producing silver nickels. These coins were made of an alloy of 56% copper, 35% silver and 9% manganese rather than 75% copper and 25% nickel as the coins had been made since 1866. So why was the metallic composition of the coins changed?

Copper and especially nickel were both metals with strategic uses for the war and were more valuable than silver at the time. For example, nickel could be used to harden the metal in heavy tanks and for other military purposes.

Earlier in 1942, on March 27, a law was enacted that called for completely eliminating nickel from five-cent coins. The particular nickel composition was 56% copper, 35% silver, and 9% manganese. This alloy was used from mid-1942 through December 1945 until the war was over.

To make it easy to spot the silver war nickels from other nickels, a large “P” mintmark was added on the reverse side of the coins above the dome of Monticello, Jefferson’s famous estate in Virginia. In addition, since coins made of the normal alloy had already been produced at Philadelphia earlier in 1942, the silver nickels made there were the first U.S. coins struck at that mint that sported a mintmark. This change was also made to make it easier to spot the coins when they were redeemed at banks.

The silver nickels were also easy to spot when freshly minted because they had a dazzling brilliant finish on them that was whiter in appearance than regular nickels and often with sharp striking of the details. However, with time the finish tarnished and toned, often becoming a dull grey and less attractive, which also happened with the 1943 steel pennies made for the war effort too.

Nice 👍

Certainly a very nice Update to the old Nickel Indian head and I believe it's the Artist's personal tip of the Headdress to the original artist and Iconic coin.

Always, with Love 🤗 🌺 💖

Did you know the Buffalo on the nickel is designed after Black Diamond a buffalo which was kept in Brooklyn zoo.

Yes, I am aware that it was on the design of the American Gold Buffalo, and I supposed it is in the Buffalo Nickel design too, hehehe!

Have a nice week, @monsterjamgold!

That Indian looks nice and it reminds me of the movie "The Last of the Mohicans". All that stuff about how their lives were changed when people traveled over form the seas.

Your page is making me fall in love with coins. Anytime I see one of your photos, it tends to be a design that I just love. First the dragon, and now the native. I can see how people love to collect these, plus add in the fact that they are valuable.

I collect silver & gold to save. Should I need money in the future there is always something to sell.
Slow but sure!
Thanks for checking it out, @daltono!

I love this coin!! I have buffalo nickels (my dad had a slot machine he was given by a customer and as kids, we played the slots on rainy days! ) You guess it. It was a nickel machine! Best of times! I'm still not a gambler! LOL

The eagle is stunning and I need to look about getting one of these! It is so gorgeous! You get the best coins!

Hahaha, nor am I! I sure will not gamble my hard-earned money. Not that there is anything wrong with people wanting to gamble theirs... it's just me.
Thank you for checking this out, sweet @dswigle!!

I am with you on that one. I have been exposed to gambling all my life, but, it has never held an interest for me.

Yes, a lot of people like it, it seems, even when it is not a coin!
I like it because it seems that they will have it every year (not sure) and it's an alternative to stacking coins.
Thanks for coming, @tazi!
