Design of the Silver 10 oz. American Indian Buffalo Bar
Bullion buyers, especially those in the United States, have a kind of love affair with the designs that appeared on classic American coins of the first part of the 20th century. Few such designs are more popular than that which appeared from 1913 to 1938 on the Buffalo or Indian head nickel. This coin was design by acclaimed American sculptor and medallic artist, James Earle Fraser.
His design featuring a male American Indian on the obverse, and a buffalo that is believed to be “Black Diamond,” an animal that was in his local zoo in New York City, stands out as a great achievement in what is called “bas-relief” art or sculpture.
It is not surprising that this image has been used not only on silver and gold coins issued by the U.S. Mint during the past 15 years, but that the very same design is often used on silver bars and rounds of various sizes issued by private mints.
Why purchase a 10 Troy oz..999 fine silver American Indian Bar?
10 oz. bars of silver are a popular way to stack silver since they contain a substantial amount of the metal, yet are not as bulky as larger bars like 100 oz. and kilo bars. These particular ones were at one time stamped with a unique serial numbers, however, in the last 6 months - the mint has removed the serial numbers from the bars and all subsequent bars will not have this feature. They come in protective plastic to help keep your silver bar looking new.
