The American Buffalo gold coin was the very first 24-carat one ounce gold coin to be produced by the US Mint. It has a legal tender value of $50.
The obverse of the coin reads 'Liberty' and has an F mark to indicate it is the design of American sculptor James Earle Fraser. The image on this side of the coin is the profile of a Native American. It first appeared in 1913 on the Buffalo Nickel and is roughly based on the American Indian chieftains Iron Tail (Sioux), Big Tree (Kiowa), and Two Moons (Cheyenne), all of whom sat to be drawn by Fraser at different points in time.
The reverse of the coin reads United States of America across the top, and is accompanied by the Latin motto E Pluribus Unum - “Out of many, one” – just above the buffalo’s back. The phrase ‘In God We Trust’ also appears, as it has done on US gold coins since 1908.
