The design of the GOLD American Buffalo coin is a slightly modified version of James Earle Fraser’s design for the Indian Head nickel, issued in early 1913. The obverse of the coin depicts a Native American, whom Fraser created as a mixture of three chiefs from different American Indian tribes. The reverse has an American Bison standing atop a hill. The American Gold Buffalo is the first pure gold (.9999 fine) 24-karat bullion coin issued to the public by the U.S. Mint.
Introduced in 2006 by The United States Mint, The American Gold Buffalo was its first 24-karat gold bullion coin. This combined with its overall beauty has made the coin one of the most desirable among collectors and investors. The obverse and reverse represent the native beauty of the American West.
