APMEX Partners With Choctaw Artist DG Smalling for a Custom Oklahoma Coin Collection

The collaboration features two iconic Oklahoma symbols: the grand buffalo and the Osage warrior’s shield.

APMEX, an Oklahoma City-based global precious metals retailer, partnered with Choctaw artist DG Smalling to release an exclusive custom coin collection.

The collaboration features two iconic Oklahoma symbols: the grand buffalo and the Osage warrior’s shield.

Born in Oklahoma, Smalling is best known for his continuous one-line drawing technique. DG’s career has been marked by exceptional achievements including representing Oklahoma as a featured artist at Disney’s Epcot Center in 2007; having art featured in the National Museum of the American “Choctaw Code Talkers Celebration” in Washington, D.C., in 2012; and recently partnering with Incredible Technologies to develop the first Native American-designed casino game.

“DG Smalling’s vision beautifully embodies the spirit and history of Native American heritage,” said MC Garofalo, director of product development and licensing at APMEX. “This exclusive coin collection creates another way to celebrate cultural diversity and artistic expression.”

The exclusive collection comprises Grand Buffalo 1 oz. Silver round, Grand Buffalo 1 oz. Colorized proof Silver and Grand Buffalo 1 oz. Copper round.

“Art creates a space to learn about cultures and delve into narratives and traditions,” Smalling said. “I hope this collection inspires more people to learn about our culture and support Native American artists.”

The collection brings Smalling’s artistry to the world of precious metals, an industry where art doubles as an investment.
