The US Mint began issuing the Gold Buffalo series in 2006. This is the only series struck by the Mint in 24 karat, pure gold. This example contains 1/10 oz. .9999 pure gold and bears a legal tender face value of $5. This coin was struck at the West Point, New York branch of the US Mint and bears the iconic "W" Mint mark.

The designer of the coin is the famous American artist and sculptor James Earle Fraser. The design was circulated in the United States on the nickel from 1913 until 1938. The obverse features a composite image of a Native American chief. He is depicted facing to the right and has braids and feathers in his hair. The reverse is where the famed "Buffalo Nickel" gets the name. The Black Diamond bison, a famous resident of the New York City Zoo in 1913 was the model for the depiction.
