James Earle Fraser’s wildly popular Buffalo Nickel celebrates the American West, where Fraser spent the majority of his youth. The obverse of the nickel features the profile of an American Indian man believed to be the combination of three famous chiefs: Iron Tail of the Lakota Sioux, Big Tree from the Kiowa nation, and Two Moons from the Cheyenne nation.

The reverse of the Buffalo Nickel was designed in the likeness of Black Diamond, a 1,550-pound American Bison who lived at the Central Park Menagerie from 1893 to 1915.
