Black Diamond, the inspiration for America's iconic nickel

A century ago, the U.S. Mint was preparing to release what would become one of the country's best-loved coin designs. A North American bison named Black Diamond likely served as the model for the coin's iconic reverse.


Events, activities and educational content will focus on the Indian Head/Buffalo nickel (1913-1938), including subjects such as Native American history, animals on coins, the "Renaissance of American Coinage" and the famous 1913 Liberty Head nickel.
