1 oz Buffalo Silver Rounds

Many well-known private mints have struck this beautiful commemorative silver bullion coin throughout the past several decades. Buffalo Silver Rounds depict two icons of America's past. James Earle Fraser's design of the original 1913 Indian Head Nickel, considered by many to be among the best of any U.S. coin designs, inspired both of the images featured on this round.

The image on the obverse of the silver coin pays tribute to native American tribes. The featured image is a composition of three different tribal chiefs: Iron Tail (Lakota), Two Moons (Cheyenne), and John Big Tree (Seneca). The reverse pays tribute to the American buffalo, a once endangered species that has seen a resurgence in numbers in recent years. The image is rumored to be a sketch of a buffalo named Black Diamond that was in the Central Park Zoo at the time of James Earle Fraser's creation of the Indian Head Nickel.

Understanding Silver Rounds vs. Silver Coins

When diving into the world of precious metals, it's essential to distinguish between silver rounds and silver coins. At a glance, they might appear strikingly similar, boasting the same size, diameter, and even design elements like the revered Buffalo. However, the differences lie in their origins and purpose. Silver coins, minted by government institutions, carry a face value, making them legal tender. They often bear the mark of the US Mint. In contrast, silver rounds, like the ones offered by OWNx, are products of private mints. They might echo the designs of coins but lack a face value, meaning they aren't legal tender. This distinction is crucial for investors. While coins often carry a higher premium due to their collectible nature, silver rounds, especially the 1 oz silver buffalo round, appeal to those looking to maximize their precious metal holdings without the added cost.

Features of the 1 oz Silver Buffalo Round


The modern 1 oz Silver Buffalo Round pays homage to Fraser's classic design. The obverse showcases the detailed profile of the Native American chief, with the word "LIBERTY" inscribed to the side and a mint mark near the bottom. The reverse, true to Fraser's original, displays the left profile of the buffalo, accompanied by inscriptions like "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," and the round's weight and purity, "1 OZ. .999 FINE SILVER."

Benefits of Investing in Silver Buffalo Rounds

In these unpredictable economic times, a strategy like dollar-cost averaging, where regular asset purchases are made over time, can be invaluable. OWNx, a reputable precious metals dealer, has automated this process, allowing investors to set their purchase goals and let the platform handle the rest. This approach, combined with the intrinsic value of the silver buffalo round, offers a robust investment avenue. 

Why Silver Buffalo Rounds Stand Out

The 1 oz silver buffalo round isn't just history and cultural heritage. The intricate designs, inspired by James Earle Fraser's original coin, resonate with both collectors and investors. The buffalo, often associated with the vast American plains and the country's native tribes, and the Native American chief, symbolizing the indigenous people's resilience and spirit, make this round a piece of art.

Whether you're looking to diversify your portfolio, hedge against inflation, or simply own a piece of American history, the silver buffalo round is an excellent choice.

History of the Buffalo Silver Round

The tale of the Buffalo silver round dates back over a century. Entrusted with the task of redesigning the five-cent coin, acclaimed sculptor James Earle Fraser introduced a design in 1913 that would become iconic. This design, known as the Buffalo nickel, showcased a majestic buffalo, believed by many to be inspired by Black Diamond from New York's Central Park Zoo, though some argue it might have been Bronx from the Bronx Zoo. The obverse side of the coin featured a composite image of three Native American chiefs: Iron Tail, Two Moons, and Big Tree. This coin, while initially met with mixed reviews, has since become a beloved symbol of American heritage.

The Future of Silver and Buffalo Silver Rounds

With global markets experiencing volatility, the allure of silver and, by extension, the 1 oz silver buffalo round, remains strong. Silver, unlike fiat currencies, has intrinsic value, making it a stable investment. As more people recognize the benefits of owning precious metals, the demand for silver rounds, especially those with historical significance like the buffalo round, is set to rise.
