2019 1oz Gold Buffalo BU 🇺🇸


Recommended Posts

I bought this beautiful 2019 1oz Gold Buffalo, also known as an American Buffalo, from Atkinsons. The Native American figurine did not come with the coin but was coincidentally or “serendipitously” on my mantelpiece along with various objets d’art.

The obverse (front) features James Earle Fraser's classic portrait of a Native American in profile, as first seen on the 1913 Buffalo Nickel. Fraser based the portrait on the Native American chieftains Iron Tail (Sioux), Big Tree (Kiowa), and Two Moons (Cheyenne), who posed as models for him to sketch.

The reverse depicts an American bison, also adapted from the original reverse of the classic Buffalo Nickel. This image is thought to be based on Black Diamond, a buffalo living in the Central Park Zoo in the early 20th century.
