A Native American figure is depicted on the obverse of 2010 Gold American Buffalo Coins. This image is considered one of the finest portraits ever created for coinage. In crafting the design, James Earle Fraser combined elements of different chiefs from the tribes Iron Tail, Two Moons, and Big Tree. Also on the obverse is the word Liberty, the date, and the letter F for Fraser.
A bison is seen on the reverse of 2010 1 oz American Buffalo Coins. He is shown facing the left side and standing on a mound of dirt. Some say this design was inspired by Black Diamond, one of the largest bison to ever be held in captivity. He was kept in the Central Park Zoo in New York City, where Fraser lived for a decade. The purity, weight, denomination, and country of origin are all listed on this side of the coin as well.
The Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005 had several provisions for the minting of the American Gold Buffalo. Among them was that all coins had to be minted with 24-karat .9999 pure gold. This marked the first time the United States had minted a coin with such a high purity level. Another requisite was that these coins would feature the iconic James Earle Fraser designs from the Buffalo Nickel coins minted between 1913 and 1938. These images are considered by experts to be among the finest in coin history, which essentially guaranteed the American Gold Buffalo would become a favorite among both collectors and investors.
