2020 $50 Gold Buffalo Coins

 
The $50 American Buffalo is the largest coin struck for circulation in pure 24-karat gold.  The design is based on the iconic Indian Head nickel (Type 1), issued in early 1913.
 
The obverse (front) of the coin depicts a Native American, whom Fraser said he created as a mixture of the features of three chiefs from different American Indian tribes, Big Tree, Iron Tail, and Two Moons. The obverse also shows the motto "LIBERTY" on the top right, the year of mintage on the bottom left, and below that the letter F for Fraser.
 
The reverse (back) of the coin stands an American Bison, which commonly are referred to as buffalo. The animal depicted on the reverse is believed by most to be the bison named Black Diamond, who lived in the New York City Central Park Zoo during the 1910s.
