The Gold American Buffalo Date Run includes the popular 2013 Reverse Proof 70 Coin. Celebrating the 100-year anniversary of the Buffalo Coin, the U.S. Mint reversed the mirror-like background finish of the traditional proof coin and applied it instead to the design elements of the coin achieving a magnificent visual contrast against the uniquely frosted background.

This unique anniversary edition captures the beauty of coin design and the modernization of coin production over the last 100 years in one magnificent showpiece.

The Classic Buffalo Design

All of the American Buffalo Gold coins feature a front-side (obverse) design created by James Earle Fraser and used on the original "Buffalo Nickel" issued in 1913. It is a Native American portrait believed to be based on a mix of three Indian chiefs, from three separate tribes: Big Tree, Iron Tail and Two Moons.

Atop a mound of dirt on the reverse (back) of the coin stands an American Bison, which commonly are referred to as buffalo. The animal depicted on the reverse is believed by most to be the bison named Black Diamond, who lived in the New York City Central Park Zoo during the 1910s. It is said that Fraser had to have someone distract the buffalo while he sneaked to a position beside it to draw. Otherwise, the buffalo would turn to face him and Fraser couldn't get the profile he wanted.
