Each Buffalo 5 oz copper round is composed of 5 AVDP oz .999 fine copper bullion and arrives in new condition.
An affordable way to invest in metal, Provident Metals carries 5 Oz Buffalo Copper Rounds, beautifully struck by the Golden State Mint. Each round is composed of 5 troy ounces of .999 fine copper, and celebrates James Earle Fraser’s wildly popular 1913 - 1938 Indian Head Nickel.
The obverse of each round features the profile believed to be the combination of three American Indian chiefs from different tribes: Iron Tail of the Lakota Sioux, Big Tree of the Kiowa and Two Moons of the Cheyenne. It is inscribed with the word “LIBERTY” to the right of the chief’s face.
The reverse of each 5 Oz Buffalo Copper Round features a rendition of Fraser’s Black Diamond design — the 1,550-pound American Bison who spent his years living at the Central Park Menagerie. It is inscribed with the words “GOLDEN STATE MINT” above the bison, and its weight and purity below.
