History of the Coin: 
The United States Mint began producing the Gold American Buffalo in 2006. It was the first coin minted by the United States Government with pure 24-karat gold and available to the public. The Gold American Buffalo was minted to compete directly with the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf and other foreign 24-karat gold coins. 

The design of the coin should be familiar to any coin collector. The obverse of the 2018 Gold American Buffalo is similar to the Indian Head or Buffalo nickel featuring the design of sculptor James Earle Fraser of a Native American. The design doesn’t depict a particular Native American. Fraser himself wasn’t consistent with his story of the identity of the subject of his design. In 1913 he actually wrote to the Mint Director of the time claiming that he had done portraits of several Native Americans including Iron Tail and Two Moons and that the Native American on the coin is probably a combination of all of these. 

The reverse of the coin should look very familiar as well. The American bison design is also from James Earle Fraser. Like the obverse design, there is doubt for the inspiration of the reverse design. The American bison Black Diamond at the Bronx Zoo was Fraser’s subject for the design. Although Fraser has a vivid recollection of Black Diamond, the American bison never lived at the Bronx Zoo. Instead he lived at the Central Park Zoo until 1915 when he was sold and slaughtered. The final design of the reverse does differ from the actual Black Diamond.

Regardless of the inspiration behind Fraser’s designs the 2018 Gold American Buffalo is a beautiful homage to the Buffalo Nickel. The nominal face value of the coin is $50 and is guaranteed by the United States Government.
