Want to collect a popular and fun coin? Collect the Gold Buffalo coin, which features images borrowed from the Indian Head, also known as the Buffalo nickel. The Buffalo nickel is so called for the images on either side of it, created by a famous American sculptor called James Earle Fraser. There were three American Indians who modeled for the image on the Buffalo nickel created by Fraser. Chief Iron Tail, a Lakota Sioux, and Chief Two Moons, a Cheyenne, were two of the American Indians. The third is unknown as Fraser could only recall the name of two of his subjects. It is the first time in history that the US Mint is offering the 24k version of the Gold Buffalo coin.
