Buffalo Nickel, The
Taylor Morrison (au) (il)
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.
