The designs of the 2008 Proof American Gold Buffalo Coins pay homage to James Earle Frasers timeless 1913 Buffalo Nickel, capturing the essence of the American frontier. On the obverse, an authoritative indigenous figure gazes forth, embodying resilience and heritage.


The reverse of 2008 1 oz Proof Gold Buffalo Coins features a majestic American bison, an iconic symbol of strength and abundance in indigenous cultures. Inspired by the legendary Black Diamond, this portrayal exudes the spirit of the American West.


Fraser intended the Native American figure to symbolize the strength, resilience, and dignity of the indigenous peoples of North America. The portrayal captures a sense of pride and stoicism, reflecting the enduring spirit of Native American cultures despite centuries of adversity and marginalization.
