Minting of American Buffalo nickels ceased a lifetime ago. Yet the design’s popularity never waned, leading the U.S. Mint to enlarge and restore the original design on a much larger, limited edition silver dollar.
Collectors stampeded to claim their American Buffalo Silver Dollars when they were first issued in 2001. But with a production run officially limited to just 500,000, the coins sold out in only two weeks – the fastest sell-out of any modern U.S. coin programme offered until then. On the 100th anniversary of the original nickel design and more than 10 years after this silver dollar vanished into private collections, it continues to be one of the most sought-after of all modern silver dollars. However, we’ve been able to secure a precious few of these valued coins and are offering them to our customers while our supply lasts.
You’ll receive a richly polished wooden display chest, featuring a striking black velvet lining along with a lock and tasselled key, at no additional charge. A special feature of the chest allows you to angle your coin for optimal display. A fact-filled booklet with detailed information on the design and history of the coin is also included.
Our supply is extremely limited and orders will be accepted on a strict first-come, first-served basis.
Chest is 5” x 3¾” x 5” (opened).
