The Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington D.C. was established by President Grover Cleveland in 1889, its first exhibits featuring a small herd of American Buffalo and a Golden Eagle. This 2019 Buffalo proof medal is the first release of a series commemorating the founding of the zoo. Buffalo imagery of the medal was created by sculptor Natanya van Niekerk, who is best known for her work with the South African Mint and their Natura wildlife series. Struck from 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver at the Commonwealth Mint with a limited mintage of 2,500, the proof measures 38.7 mm in diameter.
