Buy Buffalo Nickels Online

The design of the Buffalo Nickel is undoubtedly one of the most iconic of all time. Its design is even used on both the 2001 Silver Buffalo and Gold Buffalo Coins. This is one of the few U.S. coins that do not have a reeded edge but rather a flat edge!

These rolls of Buffalo Nickels were acquired from a small collection of older coins. Each roll will contain 40 coins and all coins will have a full date! This is hard to come by for Buffalo Nickels, due to their low rims and softer metal composition. Most Buffalo Nickels you'll find have the date worn down from wear and tear. No coin collection is complete without some Buffalo, a.k.a "Indian Head" Nickels. How can you go wrong paying less than $1.25 per coin??


  • Iconic design
  • Roll of 40 coins
  • Full date is visible!

Rare Buffalo Nickel Value

Buffalo Nickels, also known as Indian Head Nickels, were minted from 1913 to 1938 and are a popular series among coin collectors. The value of Buffalo Nickels varies widely depending on the year, mint mark, and condition. Here's a list of some of the more rare and valuable Buffalo Nickels and their approximate values in good condition:

  1. 1913-S Type 2: The 1913-S Type 2 is one of the key dates for Buffalo Nickel collectors. Its value can range from $100 in good condition to over $1,000 in uncirculated (MS60) condition.

  2. 1914/3 Overdate (1914/3-S): This overdate error is highly sought after by collectors. In good condition, it can be worth around $250, with prices significantly increasing in finer grades.

  3. 1914-D: The 1914-D is another key date, especially in higher grades. In good condition, it's worth approximately $175, but in uncirculated condition, it can fetch thousands.

  4. 1915-S: This coin is relatively rare in all grades and can be worth around $50 in good condition. In uncirculated condition, its value can exceed $1,000.

  5. 1916/16 Doubled Die Obverse: One of the most famous errors in the Buffalo Nickel series, the 1916/16 doubled die can be worth over $3,000 even in good condition.

  6. 1918-D 8 Over 7: Another rare overdate error, the 1918-D 8 Over 7 can fetch around $500 in good condition and significantly more in higher grades.

  7. 1921-S: The 1921-S is the lowest mintage date for Buffalo Nickels minted in San Francisco. In good condition, it's worth around $40, with uncirculated examples reaching into the hundreds.

  8. 1924-S: This date is challenging to find in higher grades. In good condition, it's worth approximately $30, but in uncirculated condition, the value can exceed $1,000.

  9. 1926-S: The 1926-S has the lowest mintage of the entire series and is highly prized in all conditions. It's worth around $10 in good condition but can fetch over $1,000 in uncirculated grades.

  10. 1937-D 3-Legged: Resulting from a die error that removed one of the buffalo's legs, the 1937-D 3-Legged Buffalo Nickel is highly sought after. In good condition, it can be worth around $400, with uncirculated examples reaching into the thousands.

Please note that coin values fluctuate based on the silver market, collector demand, and the coin's condition. For the most accurate valuation, consider having your coins professionally graded by a reputable grading service.
