In 1913, James Earle Fraser introduced fresh designs for the US nickel. These iconic designs remained in circulation until 1938, known as the Buffalo Nickel or Indian Nickel. In 2006, they made a triumphant return as the first-ever 24-karat American gold coin. And now, you can purchase the 2023-W Proof American Buffalo 1 oz Gold Coins online at Provident Metals.
James Earle Fraser’s design for the 1913 Buffalo Nickel replaced the Liberty Nickel and is widely celebrated as the finest design ever featured on the US nickel. It was one of the earliest American currency pieces to feature indigenous figures in its design and themes, prominently featuring the American bison on the reverse.
On the obverse side of the 2023-W Proof Buffalo 1 oz Gold Coin, you’ll find an exquisite depiction of an indigenous figure. Fraser skillfully crafted this design by combining facial features from three prominent tribal elders in 20th-century America. The inscriptions include LIBERTY, 2023, and Fraser’s F initial.
The reverse side of the 2023-W Proof American Buffalo Gold Coin showcases Fraser’s iconic image of the American bison. As the largest land mammal in North America, the bison stands in left-profile relief on a mound of earth and grass. Inscriptions read UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM, IN GOD WE TRUST, $50, and 1 OZ. .9999 FINE GOLD.
Bison conservation has been a successful endeavor in North America, thanks to the dedication of organizations, national parks, and private ranches. These efforts have revived bison populations from the brink of extinction. Today, North America is home to approximately 500,000 bison, with both wild and managed herds contributing to their remarkable recovery. Bison conservation is vital for preserving the ecological and cultural heritage of our continent.
