The 2022 Indian Head Black Ruthenium Tribute Coin is a beautiful specimen that celebrates the history of the Indian Head Nickel and the modern American Gold Buffalo Coin. These two coins, one a former circulation coin and the other a modern bullion coin, share a design element that was created in 1913 by James Earle Fraser.
In 1913, James Earle Fraser’s depiction of the indigenous tribal figure and an American bison was approved by the administration of President William Howard Taft. This design was authorized for use on the Indian Head Nickel, a five-cent piece in circulation from 1913 to 1938. In 2006, the United States Mint revived these beautiful visuals for use on a 24-karat gold bullion coin known as the American Gold Buffalo.
For the obverse design of 2022 Indian Head Black Ruthenium Tribute Coins, you will find the right-profile effigy of an indigenous figure. This stoic tribal figure has braided hair with feathers woven in. The field includes the inscriptions from the modern Gold Buffalo.
In the reverse field of the 2022 Indian Head Black Ruthenium Tribute Coin, the designers replicate the image of an American bison. This design shows the buffalo in left-profile relief as it stands on a small mound of dirt. The field comes with the inscriptions replicating those of the American Gold Buffalo, as well as a marking of COPY, the latter of which lets you know this coin is a Tribute Coin.
These 2022 Indian Head Black Ruthenium Tribute Coins are available with plastic capsules and a small display stand. Each coin comes with a Certificate of Authenticity as well. These tribute coins are not legal tender and have no significant precious metals content, but do have a black ruthenium plating in the background field with a 24-karat gold layer on the primary designs on each side.
