2011 American Buffalo Gold Proof Coin

leave a comment »

Enhance your collection with the exquisite 2011 American Buffalo Gold Proof Coin! Each coin contains one ounce of .9999 fine, 24-karat gold and is presented in an elegant hardwood box. The coin features beautifully detailed artwork by noted American sculptor James Earle Fraser, once a student of Augustus Saint-Gaudens. The Native American depiction on the coin’s obverse is believed to be based on three different chiefs – two of whom were named by the designer as Chief Iron Tail and Chief Two Moons – who modeled for Fraser as he sculpted its design. 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. Get yours today at the U.S. Mint.
