About this Product Full Product Name

The Buffalo Nickel was struck by the U.S. Mint from 1913 to 1938 and was produced at the Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco Mints. Its popularity was unprecedented nationwide and is still one of our most popular circulating coins to this day.

When the coin first came out in 1913, the iconic design had a more prominent 'raised mound' that the titular Buffalo would stand on. This original design, while beautiful looking, was not built to stand up to the test of circulation. Very quickly these original-design coins would have their dates worn down, a major issue for the U.S. Mint.

Due to these issues, they would release an updated 'Type II' Buffalo Nickel design later in 1913 that had a cut-out for the date built into the mound -- as opposed to being stamped on top of it, like the Type I.

If it were not for the bad design placement of the date which wore off quickly, it is possible that this coin would still be in service today.

These stunning 2-piece sets have both coins from 1913 -- the Type I and Type II Buffalo Nickels -- in beautiful collector's quality circulated condition and are in our new Defender Holders!
