**WE ALWAYS SHIP TRACKED & OFFER COMBINED SHIPPING & FREE TRACKED SHIPPING WHEN YOU BUY $100 OR MORE**The famous American 5 cents (1913-1938) that depict an American Bison on one side and a portrait of a Native American Chief on the other. As these coins has been minted with the two faces flip-side, you must choose the face that you want as the other one will be upside down. These coins are used and do not clearly show the year. Their composition is 75% copper and 25% nickel. The portrait shown is a composition of 3 different chiefs who posed for the engraver Fraser for the final result: Chief Iron Tail (Sioux Oglada Lakota), Chief Two Moons (Cheyenne) and Chief Big Tree (Kiowa). The model for the bison is rumored to be Black Diamond, the alpha male of the herd at the Bronx Zoo in New-York. These coins have been minted between 1913 and 1938 and are still in circulation, officially, but we seldom find them roaming in people's pockets anymore. Diameter is 21.2 mm. On an alloy (mixed metals, no lead no nickel) chain, with a lobster claw clasp and always a 3 inch extension that you can use for adjustment (or remove). All metallic components are lead, nickel and cadmium free. You can also choose a 20 inches long 925 Sterling Silver chain (and lobster claw clasp) but without an extension. In personalisation, please tell us if you would like a simple or an intricate bail (hanger). If you are looking for a specific coin, please get in touch, we have coins from 179 + countries at this point
