Hobo Nickel Silver Rounds debuted in early 2016 from Spanish engraver and artist Paolo Curcio, better known to fans of hobo cultural art as Mr. The. He was born in Italy and has lived in Spain since 2003. A graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Sculpture, hes worked as a jeweler since 2003.
Each of the Hobo Nickel Silver Rounds hes created in this five-coin series presents themes reminiscent of hobo cultural art from America in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. With nothing to do to pass the time, hobo artists left their mark on the world, literally, by engraving small extra design facets on American currency.
The Buffalo Nickel design from James Earle Fraser was a favorite target of the artists, as it had a larger surface area than pennies, but was easier to find and more commonly passed out to hobos than larger denominations.
On the reverse of the 1 oz Proof Green Fairy and Fishbones Hobo Nickel Silver Round youll find the image of a fish swimming under the sea, missing of course is its skin. The haunting creature is set against a backdrop of a watery landscape with engravings typical of American coinage.
The obverse of the Proof Green Fairy and Fishbones features the naked Green Fairy, knelt down and holding an intoxicating beverage which includes steam emanating from the glass in the design.
Each of these silver rounds ships to you in a protective plastic capsule, and features a Certificate of Authenticity that verifies your purchase. This is one of three weights and/or finishes available in the 4th release of the series.
