Like the American Eagle Series coin, the American Gold Buffalo coin uses designs from the early 20th century. This time is called the Golden Age of American coining. The design of the Gold Buffalo repeats 1911 design of the Buffalo Nickel by James Earle Frazer.
The Buffalo Nickel was in circulation from 1913 to 1938.The design was authorized by President William Howard Taft’s administration. The averse of the Nickel featured the image of an Indian American chieftain and the reverse the image of the bison.
The right profile of an Indian tribal leader on the face of the American Gold Buffalo Coin was a composite of several Native Americans whose faces Fraser used for inspiration. Quite a few people claimed to be a model for Fraser’s coin, and made public appearances as the “nickel Indians”. Engravings features the word “liberty”, sculptor James Earle Fraser’s last name initial of “F” and the year of issue.
James Frazer was born in Wintona, Minnesota and used Midwest prairies for design inspiration. The model for the left side image of a bison on the reverse of the Buffalo Nickel is believed to be a buffalo of a North American bison called Black Diamond. Black Diamond spent its life in Central Park Menagerie (Central Park Zoo) and lived until the age of 22 years old. The bison is depicted standing on a mount of grass and dirt. Engraving on the back of the coin includes the nation of issue, national motto, weight, purity, metal content, and the face value.
