First released in 2006, the American Buffalo Gold Coin was first designed as a modified version of the Indian Head Nickel, which was first issued in 1913. The coin's obverse depicts a Native American man. The designer, James Earle Fraser, said he created this image as a mixture of the features of three chiefs from different American Indian tribes.
The coins reverse features an American Buffalo along with the Moto: E PLURIBUS UNUM which is Latin for ‘One out of Many’. This motto is famous to Americans and can be found on the national seal. The American Buffalo is sacred to the American Indians and is a symbol of provision, abundance, and prosperity.
