  • Description:

    The 2016-W Proof American Gold Buffalo celebrates 10 years of production and stands as the only 24 karat gold coin minted in the US. The Proof American Gold Buffalo coins represent the collector edition of the bullion series. Issued in 2006, the American Gold Buffalo coins immediately became a coveted piece for collectors and investors interested in buying gold coins. The American Gold Buffalo Coins represent a great way to buy gold at relatively low premiums over the current gold price, while paying homage to it's timeless design. James Earle Fraser is the artist responsible for such a stunning coin design, meeting an American bison in real life, just to draw it portrait. Black Diamond is the American Bison used as a model for the buffalo design. It has been recorded 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.

    Many gold coin collectors are familiar with the name of sculptor, Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Saint-Gaudens was a mentor to James Earle Fraser, who designed the 1913 Buffalo Nickel. This famous nickel design has been used for both silver and gold products and is the main design for the American Gold Buffalo series. 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.
