Inspired by James Earle Fraser’s iconic 1913 Buffalo Nickel design, the American Gold Buffalo pays homage to the spirit of the American West. The imagery features both an American bison and an indigenous figure. Bison are seen as spiritual beings that connect indigenous peoples to their ancestors and the natural world. Rituals involving bison, such as hunts and ceremonies, are conducted with deep reverence and respect for the animal’s spirit.

Historically, bison provided indigenous communities with essential resources for survival. Bison meat served as a primary food source, while their hides were used for clothing, shelter, and tools. Every part of the bison was utilized, demonstrating a profound respect for the animal and its role in sustaining life.

On the obverse of 2008 1 oz Proof Gold Buffalo Coins, you’ll find a powerful depiction of an indigenous figure, embodying strength and resilience.

The bison, featured on the reverse of the 2008 Proof American Gold Buffalo, holds deep significance in indigenous cultures, symbolizing abundance and the connection to the land. Fraser’s portrayal of this majestic creature captures its essence, drawing inspiration from Black Diamond, a famous bison of the early 20th century.

Each 2008 1 oz Proof American Gold Buffalo Coin comes securely packaged in a plastic capsule, housed within a US Mint presentation box, and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
