Crazy Horse was one of the most renowned indigenous leaders of the 19th century in North America. He was the wartime leader of the Oglala band of Lakota Sioux and earned the title of shirt wearer for his bravery. He was responsible for leading the Oglala and other allied tribes in the Black Hills Wars on the Great Plains in the 1860s and at the Battle of the Little Bighorn.

Copper rounds are popular with collectors for offering historic or one-of-a-kind designs on extremely affordable design elements. Compared to precious metals like gold and silver, a 1 oz copper round is available at pennies on the dollar. While 1 oz gold is in excess of $1,000 and 1 oz of silver is in excess of $20 in the 2020s, copper remains extremely affordable. This unique Crazy Horse depiction is an easy way for collectors of indigenous designs to add copper to a metals-based portfolio of holdings.
Crazy Horse is depicted on the obverse side of 1 oz Copper Lakota Crazy Horse Rounds. His effigy captures a stoic figure he was respected by both his enemies and his people. Crazy Horse, whose name literally translated as his horse is crazy, was given the title of shirt wearer by his band of Oglala people from the Lakota Sioux tribe.
An American bison is featured in the reverse design of the Copper Lakota Crazy Horse Round. The Lakota people associated themselves closely with the American bison, both spiritually and religious, as well as in movement. Bison are nomadic creatures that follow migratory patterns to follow the available food sources on the plains. Likewise, the Lakota followed the migratory patterns of the bison to stay close to their main source of food, clothing, weapons, and even toys.
Crazy Horse became the shirt-wearer, or war leader, of the Oglala band as the Lakota Siouxs way of life and land were encroached upon by American settlers. He was the leader who guided the warriors of the Oglala, Lakota, and other allied tribes in the Battle of the Little Bighorn in 1876 when the Lakota Sioux devastated the 7th Cavalry under the leadership of Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer.
1 oz Copper Lakota Crazy Horse Rounds are available here to you as brand-new specimens. The copper rounds are packaged individually inside of plastic flips or by multiples of 20 copper rounds in acrylic tubes.
