Description
 
Known also as the Indian head nickel, the buffalo nickel has been one of the most popular coins minted in the U.S. Here is the history & making of this unique & beautiful coin through the story of its creator, American sculptor James Earle Fraser. Growing up in the Dakota Territory, Fraser witnessed the virtual extinction of the buffalo & the devastating effect this loss had on the lives & culture of the Plains Indians. As an adult, he honored both the Indians & the animal on which they had depended in his sculpture & his design for the buffalo nickel. Morrison brings art & history to life through his clear, well-researched text & striking illustrations, which capture the broad sweep of the landscape & demonstrate the intricate process by which coins are designed & minted. Illus.
