A stoic indigenous figure is featured on the obverse of all 2021-W Proof American Buffalo Gold Coins. The design was created in 1913 by James Earle Fraser and was the result of a combination of several different individuals facial features. Fraser later reported in the decades following the release of the original coin with this image that he combined facial features from three real-life Native American leaders in early 20th-century America. Inscriptions on this side include Liberty, 2021, F, and the W mint mark of the West Point Mint.


An American bison is shown on the reverse field of the 2021-W Proof American Buffalo 1 oz Gold Coin. Fraser used Black Diamond, a bison that lived at the Central Park Zoo in New York City, as inspiration for his design on this face of the coins. The inscriptions present on this side read United States of America, In God We Trust, E Pluribus Unum, $50, and 1 oz. .9999 Fine Gold.


Proof American Buffalo Gold Coins have very low mintage figures each year. The highest mintage figure remains the 2006 debut release that sold a stunning total of 246,267 coins. No other release year has surpassed 58,000 coins.
