James Earle Fraser was commissioned in 1913 to redesign the imagery on the American five-cent piece. His Buffalo Nickel design used a combination of facial features from three prominent Native American tribal leaders of the day, as well as a bison from the Central Park Zoo named Black Diamond. The Buffalo, or Indian Head, Nickel was in circulation from 1913 to 1938.
On the obverse of the 2015 1 oz American Gold Buffalo coin is the image of a Native American chieftain, captured in right-profile relief. Fraser’s design debuted on the Buffalo Nickel in 1913, and remained in use until 1938. Frasers image of the chieftain was created through the combination of facial features from real-world tribal leaders of his day.
The reverse of the 2015 1 oz American Gold Buffalo coin includes the image of Black Diamond. Though not an exact replication, Fraser’s left-profile depiction of an American bison was inspired by Black Diamond, a resident buffalo at New York City’s Central Park Zoo in the early 20th century.
Like many other annual release coins, these American Gold Buffalo coins are produced by the United States Mint at the West Point Mint facility, which has handled the production of these coins exclusively since 2006.
