Paolo Curcio is a legendary artist who hand-engraved the designs for the Hobo Nickel Series released throughout 2016. Now, a new series of five silver and copper rounds is available with Mr. Thes Indian Skull leading off the new series.
The Indian Skull was Mr. Thes take on the Buffalo Nickel design from James Earle Fraser, but in the United Snakes of America collection the reverse side of each silver round will not feature a new take on the bison image from the Buffalo Nickel. Instead, it reimagines the heraldic eagle of the United States as featured on the American Silver Eagle.
Each of these 1 oz Antique Indian Skull Silver Rounds is available to you in antique condition, with an extremely limited mintage and a numbered Certificate of Authenticity to validate your purchase. Four more designs are planned in this collection, each of which offers a unique twist on other historic American coinage.
The obverse of the 1 oz Antique Indian Skull Silver Round includes the right-profile portrait of the Native American chieftain originally designed by Fraser, but reimagined in skeletal form by Mr. The for this collection. Engravings include Liberty and the year 1937, which was the second-to-last production year for Buffalo Nickels.
On the reverse of the 1 oz Antique Indian Skull Silver Round youll find the image of the heraldic eagle restyled with snakes. There is a massive snake head emerging from behind the nations heraldic shield, with various smaller snake heads emanating out from the sides instead of the wings of the eagle.
Look for these brilliant rounds from the Osborne Precious Metals in 5 oz Antique and 1 oz Copper bullion, as well. Please direct your questions to a JM Bullion customer service team member at 800-276-6508, or connect with us online using our live chat and email address.
