James Earle Fraser's famous portrait of a Native American man from the shoulder up is featured on the obverse. The reverse, which was also designed by Fraser, depicts a large buffalo (also known as the American bison) with its head craned down to graze.
Both designs originally appeared on the five-cent nickel from 1913 to 1938. This revival on gold bullion has generated considerable nostalgia among many coin collectors. Don't miss out on adding this 2019 $50 American Gold Buffalo NGC MS70 Early Release to your collection from Gainesville Coins.
