The obverse side of 2021 American Buffalo 1 oz Gold Coins includes a depiction of a stoic indigenous figure. This figure is shown in right-profile relief and was created by James Earle Fraser using the facial features of three different individuals from the early 20th century. The inscriptions on this side of the coin include Liberty, F for Fraser, and 2021.


On the reverse face of 2021 American Buffalo Gold Coins, you will find a vision of the American bison. The largest land mammal on the North American continent, the buffalo was vital to the survival and culture of countless indigenous tribes across the plains. This image of a left-profile bison was inspired by Black Diamond, a resident bison at the Central Park Zoo in the early 20th century. The inscriptions on this face include United States of America, E Pluribus Unum, In God We Trust, $50, and 1 oz. .9999 Fine Gold.


The American Buffalo Gold Coin revives the classic images from the Buffalo Nickel. The latter coin was designed by James Earle Fraser and in production at the US Mint from 1913 to 1938.
