What is a $50 American Gold Buffalo Coin?
The American $50 Buffalo coin is the largest and purest gold bullion coin produced by the United States Mint. Production of 24-karat American Buffalo Gold Coins was authorized by Public Law 109-145, dated December 22, 2005, sponsored by Honorable Michael Castle, the Coinage Congressman. The American Buffalo Gold Coin's obverse and reverse design is based on an original design by noted American sculptor James Earle Fraser that appeared on the Buffalo nickel from 1913-1938.
The Native American depiction on the coins obverse is believed to be based on three different American Indians. Two of the American Indians who modeled for Fraser as he sculpted the coin were named by the designer before his death. They were Chief Iron Tail of the Lakota Sioux and Chief Two Moons of the Cheyenne. Although many have claimed to have had a sitting with Fraser for this design, he could not recall the name of the third person, and satisfactory documentation has not yet been found to identify that individual. It is widely believed that the bison on the coin's reverse was modeled after Black Diamond, a popular attraction at the New York Zoological Gardens.
