A familiar face to the coin and precious metals market, the Buffalo Silver Bullion Round portrays a design that is over one hundred years old. The front design is inspired by the 1913 Buffalo Nickel, which was the US 5 cent coin from 1913-1938. The Buffalo depiction was originally designed by the famous sculptor, James Earle Fraser. Although the name might be unfamiliar, Fraser's work is evident all throughout US history, including memorials and monuments. Fraser's background is important to his work, since many of his sculptures have to do with the Native Americans. James Earle Fraser grew up in Minnesota, where his father worked for the American railroad companies. During his childhood, Fraser fully embraced the frontier life but noticed how the Native Americans were being constantly pushed West and/or confined to their reservations. This sad truth led to some of Fraser's most popular works, including his famous poignant sculpture titled, "The End of the Trail." This sculpture depicts an exhausted Native American, slouching on his horse, carrying the weight of the injustices done to his people.
