9999 Fine Gold 2009W Buffalo Early Release NGC PF70 Ultra Cameo
9999 Fine Gold 2009 W Buffalo Early Release NGC PF70 Ultra Cameo. Design History of the American Gold Buffalo.The design, of the American Gold Buffalo, is rooted in American history, and was inspired by the Indian Head Nickel design of 1913. William Taft's administration commissioned James Earle Fraser to replace the Liberty Head design on the US nickel. Fraser was a student of another gold coin legacy designer, Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Fraser used his very personal experience to portray the heart and spirit, of the Native Americans, as inspiration for his design. James Earle Fraser was born in Minnesota, where he experienced daily life with the Native Americans and was dismayed by their constant struggle of being pushed into confined reservations. James Earle Fraser is best known for his Buffalo Nickel design and his End of the Trail sculpture, depicting the physical, sociological, and emotional exhaustion the Native Americans endured as settlers took over their land, forcing them to move. The obverse reveals the side portrait of a Native American Chief. It has been noted that James Earle Fraser wasn't portraying a sole person but that this portrait is a combination of 3 actual Native American Chiefs, whose identities were a mystery until 1938. The 3 Chiefs were Iron Tail of the Sioux, Big Tree of the Kiowa, and Two Moons of the Cheyenne. Black Diamond was the American Bison used as a model for the Buffalo design, on the reverse. It has been recorded James Earle Fraser needed to constantly distract the beast, while drawing its portrait, to contain the side profile view, due to the bison wanting to constantly look forward.
