Find out more about other coins featuring the bison. Don't miss the March 2005 Coin of the Month, the American Bison Nickel. This coin features the American bison, also called a buffalo. This animal used to roam the plains in such great numbers that the animal was noted often by Lewis and Clark in their journals. The American Bison Nickel is part of the Westward Journey Nickel Series™, a series that also includes lesson plans for grades K through 12. Be sure to take a look at the Kansas Quarter and the K through 6 lesson plans created specifically to celebrate it: Flower Power (K and 1), Kansas Clues (2 and 3), and Can You See the Light?
