All of the designs in the 2016 release of Hobo Nickel Silver Rounds were, first and foremost, similar in design to one another as a clever play on the old Buffalo Nickel design from James Earle Fraser. Created by Mr. The, the rounds were different, yet similar, at the same time.
For the 2017 Hobo Nickels, five new artists will contribute to the design of individual new rounds available from Heads or Tales Coin Company and the Osborne Mint. The first of these designs is from Roman Boteen and revives the 1513 creation of Albrecht Durer. His depiction is known as Knight, Death, and Devil, and features a knight riding along on horseback with his faithful dog at his side. This is considered to be one of his so-called Meisterstricth, or master prints.
On the obverse of all 1 oz Antique Durers Knight Silver Rounds youll find the image of Durers Knight, faithfully recreated by Boteen. The original creation featured the rider moving through a narrow gorge with a goat-headed devil behind him and death riding a pale horse in front of him.
The reverse of the 1 oz Antique Durers Knight Silver Round includes the image of a haunting tree, with a human skull visible beneath its trunk and a sword coming out from under the sprawling network of roots supporting the tree.
All Durers Knight Silver Rounds have an antique finish for added beauty. Products with an antique finish vary from mint to mint, but by in large, products with this finish have added warmth in appearance and depth to the overall detail of the round. Additionally, your 1 oz Antique Durers Knight Silver Round arrives in protective plastic with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
These rounds are a product of the Osborne Mint, with designs from the Heads or Tales Coin Company. This years collection of Hobo Nickel Silver Rounds will feature only antique finish products with higher mintages to satisfy demand!
