Copper is often used to strengthen other metals, particularly as an alloy, so to "buff up" the Zombuck series copper rounds have been added.
This round is based on the US Buffalo Nickel or Indian Head Nickel struck by the US mint from 1913 to 1938. But something has changed. This once massive bison now wanders the plains, decaying where he stands. The zombified buffalo is centred on the round and surrounded by the inscription "The American Zombuff 2018 and Z Fifty". Unlike the previous two rounds, the denomination (fifty) is actually spelled out in tribute to the coin it was based on.
The Black diamond Bison, weighing about 1,500 pounds used to amaze the masses with his gigantic size. Now he ravenously chases the masses.
The reverse side shows a bio-hazard symbol with blood splattered around it, reminding humans of the apocalypse hazards, with the year 2018 and Zombucks.
Made from one Avoirdupois (or bathroom scale) ounce of 999 copper, the 2018 Copper Zombuff is the third release in the Zombucks series. It follows the Walker and Morgue Anne rounds and precedes 7 others in both silver and copper, with each commemorating historical coins and historical figures in numismatic history.
In multiples of 20 these rounds will be shipped in a plastic tube.
