The profile of a Native American features on the obverse of 2008 American Gold Buffalo Coins. James Earle Fraser created this visual in 1913 by combining the features of three different tribal chiefs: Big Tree, Iron Tail, and Two Moons. This unique design is a tribute to the cultural significance of Native American people.
On the reverse side of the 2008 1 oz Gold Buffalo Coin, a buffalo is depicted, inspired by Black Diamond, a bison who lived in the Central Park Zoo of New York City during the early 1900s. Black Diamond’s impressive size and strength made him an ideal subject for the coin’s design, which reflects the power and beauty of this iconic animal.
Mintage for the American Gold Buffalo in 2008 rebounded after a drastic drop in 2007. The series debuted with 337,012 coins, the second highest in program history and only recently surpassed in 2021. After that 2006 debut, demand dropped by more than 50%, but rebounded from 136,000 in 2007 to 189,500 in 2008.
