What is a 1916-P Buffalo Nickel?

The 1916-P Proof BuffaloNickel is a coin that was minted at the Philadelphia mint. It has a legal tender value of $0.05. As a "Proof" coin, it was minted in a limited quantity, which makes it likely less available than "business strike" or "mint strike" coins which are intended for use in daily transactions. With such a low mintage of only 600, there are likely few of these items available for purchase or at auction in a year. This coin does not contain any notable amounts of precious metals.
