The image on the obverse of the silver coin pays tribute to native American tribes. The featured image is a composition of three different tribal chiefs: Iron Tail (Lakota), Two Moons (Cheyenne), and John Big Tree (Seneca). The reverse pays tribute to the American buffalo, a once endangered species that has seen a resurgence in numbers in recent years. The image is rumored to be a sketch of a buffalo named Black Diamond that was in the Central Park Zoo at the time of James Earle Fraser’s creation of the Indian Head Nickel.
