The American Buffalo is a representation of James Earle Fraser’s design of the “Indian Head Nickel” which was issued from 1913-1938. The original design was said to showcase the beauty of the American West. The Indian Head Nickel is regarded by many as one of the best U.S coin designs ever.
The famous design on the reverse side depicts a portrait of a Native American. Sculptor Fraser took the facial features of Indian Chiefs from three different tribes, Big Tree, Iron Tail and Two Moons, who posed as models for him to sketch.
