Designed by Charles E. Barber in 1883, the Liberty Nickel features a portrait of Liberty’s head on the obverse. The reverse shows a roman numeral V within a wreath. In earlier years, some of these cents were gold-plated and sold off as $5.00 coins. The word "Cents" was then added to the reverse along with the roman numeral V to discourage criminal activities. The Indian Head Nickel (also referred to as the Buffalo Nickel) was minted in the United States from 1913 to 1938. Designed by James E. Fraser, the obverse portrays a male Native American, which is composed of three different Indian Chiefs that posed for Fraser years earlier. The reverse has the American Bison on it.
