Current Design

Production of American Buffalo 24-karat gold coins was authorized by Public Law 109-145, dated December 22, 2005, known as the Presidential $1 Coin Act.

The American Buffalo Gold coin's obverse and reverse designs feature images by noted American sculptor James Earle Fraser, once a student of Augustus Saint-Gaudens, for America's five-cent coin.

That popular coin, known as the "Indian Head", or "Buffalo Nickel" was introduced in 1913 and showcases the native beauty of the American West.
