General Details

The 1 oz Silver Buffalo Round represents an excellent choice for the bullion enthusiast looking to bulk up on their silver holdings. While still very dependable in quality, this Silver Buffalo Round coin comes at a lower price point than comparative government-issue bullion of the same weight and purity.

With the value of silver arguably poised to rise due to spiking demand from increasingly industrial international players like China and India, there’s never been a better time to get into the silver game.

About the Silver Buffalo Rounds

These are mint-condition, non-circulated rounds minted by private US purveyors. Each Silver Buffalo Round contains one troy ounce of .999 fine silver. They’re 39 mm in diameter, easily stackable and easy to store.

The obverse presents a Native American Indian with the motto Liberty stamped on the top right. The back of the coin shows an American buffalo holding court over a mound of Great Plains dirt. Each round is hallmark-stamped, listing weight and purity; they also feature a reeded edge.

The design of the rounds hankers back to James Earle Fraser’s classic composition first introduced on the Buffalo Nickel in 1913. Earle’s memorable design often gets the nod from numismatic aesthetes as perhaps the best designed of any American coin.

Because they’re privately struck rather than issued by the US Mint, these lustrous rounds come at a remarkably affordable price. They’re also IRA eligible, which is a big plus for anyone looking to diversify their metal holdings.
