  • Description:

    Black Diamond is the American Bison used as a model for the 1913 Buffalo Nickel design. It has been recorded that James Earle Fraser needed to constantly distract the beast, while drawing its portrait, to contain the side profile view, due to the bison wanting to constantly look forward. When looking at the American Gold Buffalo coins, collectors will find them familar since their design comes from the 1913 Buffalo Nickel. Fraser was a student of another gold coin legacy designer, Augustus Saint-Gaudens. James Earle Fraser was born in Minnesota and experienced life first-hand with the Native Americans and the struggle of being pushed into confined reservations. James Earle Fraser is best known for his Buffalo Nickel design and his End of the Trail sculpture, depicting the physical, sociological, and emotional exhaustion the Native Americans endured as settlers took over their land.

    The 2006-W Proof American Gold Buffalo is a part of the series that was mandated by the Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005 for the US Mint to release a 24-karat gold coin, carrying the $50 monetary denomination. Because of this legal act, the American Gold Buffalos still stand as the only 24-karat gold coin. The 2006-W Proof American Gold Buffalo comes in its original government packaging and is protected by a sealed capsule. The American Gold Buffalo series was released in the Summer of 2006 and has only gained in popularity over the years. Investors and collectors, buying gold online, are drawn to this unique series and understandably so!
