American Gold Buffalo coins debuted in 2006 as the first-ever release of 24-karat gold coins from the United States Mint. These gold coins were initially available in bullion and proof versions, with talk of expanding the lineup to include fractional weight coins. Only the proof program has since had reliable production of fractional weight coins however.

Fraser was commissioned in 1913 to redesign the imagery on the American five-cent piece. His Buffalo Nickel design used a combination of facial features from three prominent Native American tribal leaders of the day, as well as a bison from the Central Park Zoo named Black Diamond. The Buffalo, or Indian Head, Nickel was in circulation from 1913 to 1938.

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Buffalo Nickel design from Fraser, the United States Mint commissioned and struck the Gold American Buffalo coin in reverse proof for one time only in 2013. Each gold coin includes a beautiful frosted background field, contrasted majestically by the deeply mirrored appearance of the design features.

On the obverse of the American Gold Buffalo coin is the left-profile portrait of a Native American chieftain. The image does not represent a singular individual, but rather, was designed by James Earle Fraser using a combination of facial features from numerous early 20th century Native Americans.

The reverse of each 2013 1 oz Reverse Proof American Gold Buffalo coin includes the depiction of Black Diamond. This bison was a resident of the Central Park Zoo in New York City in the early 20th century, and served as inspiration for Fraser’s design.
