What is the design used on this gold buffalo?

The enduring design is based on James Earle Fraser's Indian head, or Buffalo Nickel. The classic obverse is the right facing, craggy and stoic profile of a Native American man. This image was the result of Fraser sitting with three different models. The iconic reverse of the coin is a rendering of Fraser's Type 1 buffalo reverse. The image was modeled on the Bison in residence at the New York City Zoo, named Black Diamond.
