The Gold Buffalo coin is designed after James Earle Fraser's famous 1913 Type 1 Buffalo Nickel. The obverse shows the well-known Indian Head design, created by combining the images of three Native American chiefs: Iron Tail (Lakota), Two Moons (Cheyenne) and John Big Tree (Seneca). The reverse features the classic buffalo design modeled after Black Diamond, the bison living in New York City's Central Park Zoo in the early 1900s, as well as inscriptions of the weight, denomination and Gold content. The importance of Fraser's contribution to American coinage as a whole is one to be admired. His work on the Buffalo design helped bring in artistry on coins that were bold, significant and thought provoking. It was President Theodore Roosevelt's drive to bring back beauty to American coinage and the Buffalo design did that. Fraser was a disciple of Augustus Saint-Gaudens, another famed artist who made his mark on coinage. James Earle Fraser's legacy is firmly steeped in American history as designing one of the most popular coin designs in history.
