2011 American Buffalo Gold Proof Coin

leave a comment »

Enhance your collection with the exquisite 2011 American Buffalo Gold Proof Coin! Each coin contains one ounce of .9999 fine, 24-karat gold and is presented in an elegant hardwood box. The coin features beautifully detailed artwork by noted American sculptor James Earle Fraser, once a student of Augustus Saint-Gaudens. The Native American depiction on the coin’s obverse is believed to be based on three different chiefs – two of whom were named by the designer as Chief Iron Tail and Chief Two Moons – who modeled for Fraser as he sculpted its design. It is widely believed that the bison on the coin’s reverse was modeled after “Black Diamond,” a popular attraction at the New York Zoological Gardens. Get yours today at the U.S. Mint.

Hobo Nickels

with one comment

I had the opportunity to sit a spell with Mike Pezak a few months ago while he made a silver bezel for the cross I wear around my neck.  Twisting, soldering, and polishing silver, he created this great addition to my neck-piece, mind you, right in-front of my eyes.  He is a wise man with many a story.  He is one of the Hobo Nickel masters.  He informed me about the Original Hobo Nickel Society,  and showed me some of his first pieces of his new Engraving Art.  Through out the conversation I came to understand the new and the old about this form of unique engraving, and the various people who represent both parts.  From the outsiders point of view I like them both, each having their own special attributes.  I enjoyed the time I spent with Mr. Pezak and hope to catch up with again one day.
