Introduced in 2006, the Gold American Buffalo was the first-ever 24-karat gold coin from the United States Mint and remains the only annual-issue coin with .9999 fine gold content. Like the other major bullion coins from the US Mint, the Gold Buffalo uses a historic coin for its inspiration. Unlike the other coins, the Gold Buffalo uses the exact obverse and reverse designs from its original inspiration source.

The 2006 introduction of the Gold American Buffalo revived the images from the 1913 Buffalo Nickel. While the American Eagle coins feature historic effigies of Liberty from previous American coins, those coins do not pair the historic eagle designs from the reverse with these Liberty depictions. However, the Gold Buffalo uses both designs from the historic Buffalo Nickel.
All of the 2022-W 1 oz Proof Gold American Buffalos available here come to you with individual packaging from the United States Mint. The coins are held in plastic capsules and set within a brown leatherette case. The coins come with a Certificate of Authenticity from the mint and boast frosted designs with mirrored fields.
On the obverse side of 2022-W Proof Gold American Buffalos is a depiction of a stoic indigenous figure. This figure is said to be the combination of physical features from three real-world indigenous leaders in 20th-century America.
The reverse field of the 2022-W 1 oz Proof Gold Buffalo comes with an image of the American bison. The depiction of the bison is set in left-profile relief and features on a small mound of dirt. This design is based upon a bison named Black Diamond that was living at the Central Park Zoo in New York City at the time Fraser was creating the images for the Buffalo Nickel. The Buffalo Nickel was in circulation from 1913 to 1938.
