To qualify for the NGCs Early Release designation and label, coins must arrive for certification within a certain window of time.

On the obverse of each coin youll find the right-profile portrait of a tribal leader, exactly as Fraser created it in 1913 for the Buffalo Nickel. His depiction of a Native American chieftain combined the facial features and characteristics of three real-life tribal elders in the early 20th century.
The reverse of the 2014-W 1 oz Proof American Gold Buffalo coin has the image of Black Diamond, a resident bison of the Central Park Zoo in New York City at the turn of the 20th century. Frasers inspiration for both the obverse and reverse design of the original Buffalo Nickel came from his childhood growing up in Minnesota and exploring the plains of the Upper Midwest with his father.
American Gold Buffalo Proofs are struck by the United States Mint at its West Point Mint facility. Coins from this location include a W mint mark on the reverse, which is noticeable behind the Native American chieftains portrait to the lower-left field of the coin.
