SILVER HOBO NICKELS

Dating back as early as the 18th Century, America’s hobo subculture passed time by carving miniature designs into circulating coinage. Although the term Hobo Nickel is generic and can be used to identify many various denominations, more carvings were made from the American five cent piece than any other coins. The hobby gained momentum in 1913 when the US Mint introduced the new “Buffalo Nickel”.

The 2016 Silver Hobo Nickels replica collection pays tribute to this uniquely American art form, featuring officially licensed original art from master engraver Paolo “Mr The” Curcio.

The 2017 Hobo Collection expands the breadth of designs, using additional sculptors and freeing the carvers to work outside of the traditional hobo nickel genre.

Each of the original engraved designs is painstakingly transferred to clay sculpts and dies for silver coin production by a team of experts.

Five new SHN Replicas will be released in 2017 and are available in limited editions in either 1oz antique silver or 5oz antique silver.
