ABOUT THE DESIGN
American Buffalo gold coin is modeled after the famous Buffalo Nickel, created by James Earle Fraser in the early 1900s. His design is perhaps the most beloved in the history of US coinage.
Native American (obverse) - The obverse shows the well-known Indian Head symbol. Fraser is said to have created a composite using images of 3 different Chieftains. He took inspiration from Chief Iron Tail, Chief Two Moons and Chief Big Tree who posed as models as he sketched.
The history behind the image is as intriguing as the coin itself. Some claim that an American buffalo named Black Diamond -- on display at New York's Central Park Zoo was the model for the coin. Conflicting accounts suggest it was a buffalo named "Bronx" located at the rival Bronx Zoo that Fraser used.
