Benefits of Private Minting: A Look at the Silver Buffalo Round

With all things in life, it is beneficial to look at both sides of the coin: in a literal sense we can say the same about investing in precious metals. One aspect to look at is the benefit of private minting versus federally issued currency. Coins issued by the U.S. Government, or any governing body, come with high premium over their precious metals content, that goes for Gold, Silver and Platinum American Eagles; but their quality and unique designs are second to none.

On the other hand, privately minted gold, silver and platinum rounds have low premiums and still feature some of our nation’s greatest numismatic designs. One such coin is the Silver Round featuring the iconic Buffalo Nickel design minted by Highland Mint. Located in Florida, the company has been in business since the early 1980s.

Buffalo Nickel Design

First minted in 1913, the Buffalo Nickel was designed by James Earle Fraser as part of the movement in the early 20th century to improve the designs for U.S. currency. Exposed to frontier life early in his life, Fraser created iconic western imagery in his sculptures: continuing his work the nickel design showcases his talents beautifully.

Shown on the front of the Buffalo Nickel is the striking profile of a Native American facing rightward, in his braided hair are two feathers, with special detail paid to the straps in his hair and the texture of the feathers. “Liberty” is inscribed in front of profile and the date is shown on the lower left near his shoulder.
