I think I read the Buffalo Nickel was issued for the minimum period of time (25 years) and then replaced by the Jefferson Nickel (80 years and still going). The Buffalo Nickel is such a strong image of Americana despite devastation brought on the American Indians and one of their major sources for survival - the Buffalo. The images on the coin are magnificent. I wish the U S Mint would bring them back to the 5 cent piece - to be shared by many who could not invest in the gold Buffalo coins currently available.
