The 2001 Silver Buffalo Commemorative issued by the United States Mint only in 2001 is perhaps the single most popular silver commemorative ever issued.
The selection of the old Type I buffalo nickel design for a
silver dollar commemorative design was a stroke of marketing genius, and it
produced marvelous results.
Both the Proof and Mint-State issues of this one year only Silver commemorative sold out at the Mint within 2 weeks, a record that still holds today for a commemorative Silver coin. Since their release in 2001, the Silver Buffalo Commemorative coins have been incredibly popular.
A little known fact is that the U.S. Mint actually increased the tonnage pressure used to strike these coins, and each coin was struck three times. This produced coins with jaw-dropping clarity.
Each coin is hand selected for its premium quality. Unlike other examples you may find, our coins do NOT have any milky white spots or off color hazing.
