When you purchase a 2022-W Proof American Buffalo 1 oz Gold Coin online from Provident Metals, you will receive a coin that is protected inside a plastic capsule and held within a brown, leatherette case. The coin and case come with a brown outer shipper that includes a Certificate of Authenticity from the mint. As proof coins, these specimens have frosted design elements and mirrored fields.


The obverse side of 2022-W Proof American Buffalo Gold Coins comes with a right-profile portrait of an indigenous figure. This depiction shows a figure with braided hair and feathers woven in. He has a stoic look on his face in this portrait. The design field includes inscriptions of LIBERTY, 2022, the F initial of designer James Earle Fraser, and the W mint mark of the West Point Mint.


On the reverse field of the 2022 Proof American Buffalo 1 oz Gold Coin is the image of an American bison. The powerful American bison is the largest land mammal in North America. This design shows the bison in left-profile relief with a small mound of dirt beneath its feet. The details of the design capture the texture of the fur on the beast, particularly in its fluffy mane. The inscriptions on this side read UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM, IN GOD WE TRUST, $50, and 1 OZ .9999 FINE GOLD.


Introduced in 2006, the American Buffalo Gold Coin mimics the designs from the 1913 Buffalo Nickel. James Earle Fraser created the images for the Buffalo Nickel using real-world indigenous leaders as inspiration for his stoic tribal figure and Black Diamond, a resident bison at the Central Park Zoo, as the inspiration for his buffalo design.
