New Jefferson nickel “Sacred White Buffalo” (minted 2005 ) “All American made” Each one of these new un-circulated (2005) U.S. Bison nickels is first layered in 24K gold. Then the figures of each are highlighted and brought to life with rich pure silver (this silver work is done by hand). This breathtaking and exclusive work turns these coin into stunning and true works of art. The White Buffalo has always been very sacred and meaningful to the Native American. Some believe that the White Buffalo was sent from the Creator to bless all that came in contact with it. Some also believed that the White Buffalo would bring prosperity and good luck. Each coin is hermetically sealed against wear in clear, hard acrylic coating.
