  • Description:

    The Buffalo Nickel of 1921-S stands as a testament to an era of American numismatic history characterized by innovation, artistic excellence, and economic expansion. Designed by James Earle Fraser, this iconic coin features imagery that vividly captures the spirit of the American West, making it a cherished collectible among numismatists and enthusiasts alike.

    Fraser's design for the Buffalo Nickel is renowned for its artistic beauty and symbolic significance. On the obverse, a proud Native American chief in profile adorns the coin, wearing a traditional headdress adorned with feathers. The intricate details of the headdress and facial features reflect Fraser's meticulous attention to craftsmanship and his desire to honor the Native American heritage.

    The reverse of the coin features a majestic American bison standing atop a raised mound, surrounded by the inscription "FIVE CENTS." The image of the bison symbolizes the untamed wilderness of the American frontier, evoking a sense of strength, resilience, and the spirit of the West.

    The 1921-S Buffalo Nickel was struck at the San Francisco Mint, one of the key facilities responsible for producing coinage to meet the demands of commerce and trade during this period. The San Francisco Mint played a vital role in ensuring the availability of coinage on the West Coast and beyond, contributing to the economic growth of the nation.

    Coins in Good condition, such as the 1921-S Buffalo Nickel, have seen extensive circulation and wear over time. While the essential design elements of the coin remain intact, coins in this condition may exhibit noticeable softness and wear on the high points, such as the Native American profile and the bison on the reverse.

    Despite the signs of wear, Buffalo Nickels in Good condition hold significant historical and numismatic value. Each coin bears witness to America's economic growth and expansion during the early 20th century, serving as a tangible link to the past and a reminder of the everyday transactions in which these coins were once used.

    Collectors and enthusiasts are drawn to Buffalo Nickels for their iconic design, historical significance, and tangible connection to America's coinage history. The 1921-S Buffalo Nickel, with its unique mintmark denoting its San Francisco origin, holds a special place in the hearts of collectors, representing a piece of numismatic heritage that continues to captivate and inspire.
