The US Mint introduced the American Gold Buffalo coins in 2006 with two options available. Since that debut release, the series has offered 1 oz gold in both a Brilliant Uncirculated version of the coin and a proof version of the coin. On two different occasions, unique versions of the coin were also released, but the series sticks to its 1 oz gold options in the aforementioned versions on an annual basis.
All of the 2021-W 1 oz Proof American Gold Buffalo Coins in this product listing are available to you with proof visuals. This includes frosted design elements and mirrored background fields. Each coin is housed in a capsule and set inside of a wooden presentation display box from the US Mint. The coins also come with a Certificate of Authenticity.
On the obverse side of the 2021-W Proof American Gold Buffalo Coin is a depiction of a Native American figure. This indigenous figure is shown in right-profile relief with a stoic look on his face. His hair is braided at the sides with feathers woven into his hair near the back of his head. This side of the coin includes the “W” mint mark from the West Point Mint.
The reverse face of 2021-W 1 oz Proof Gold Buffalo Coins includes an image of the American bison. The bison, or buffalo, is the largest land mammal in North America and once roamed vast stretches of the West, Midwest, and Central Plains of the United States. The design on this side includes a left-profile relief of the buffalo with a small mound of dirt underneath its feet.
The designs on the modern American Gold Buffalo Coin from the US Mint were first created in 1913 by James Earle Fraser. These images reflecting the frontier of America were created for use on the US nickel and were used from 1913 to 1938 on a coin that became known as the Buffalo Nickel.
