Design of the gold American Buffalo

The design of the American Buffalo is a rework of James Earle Fraser's design for the 'Indian Head Nickel', which was introduced in 1913. Fraser's design is considered as one of the best designs of American coins out there. On the obverse is an image of an Indian who Fraser created himself from the facial features of three chiefs of three different tribes who posed for him: Big Tree, Iron Tail and Two Moons. On the top right, you'll find the word 'Liberty' and on the bottom to the left you can see the year of issue and the letter 'F' (from Fraser). On the proof version of the American Buffalo, the letter 'W' is added, referring to the West Point Mint in New York, where all American gold coins are minted. The bullion version of the American Buffalo doesn't have this feature. 
The reverse of the American Buffalo features an image of an American bison, after which the coin is named. Many believe that the image is based on a bison called Black Diamond, which lived in the New York City Central Park Zoo during the 1910s. At the top of the coin you see 'United States of America', and the United States old motto: 'E Pluribus Unum'. At the bottom of the coin the face value, the weight and purity are displayed together with the motto 'In God we trust'.
