|First released in 1913, the 1937 Buffalo Nickel is a copper-nickel coin with a face value of five cents. Designed by sculptor James Earle Fraser, this Buffalo Nickel is also known to the public as the Indian Head nickel. Made from 75 percent copper and 25 percent nickel, the 1937 Buffalo Nickel weighs over 5 grams. The obverse image of this copper-nickel coin is of an American Indian, while on the other side there is an American bison or buffalo. However, in 1938 after the minimum 25-year period had expired, and the Jefferson nickel without Congressional intervention replaced this Buffalo Nickel was replaced by the Jefferson nickel without Congressional intervention.|
