THE DESIGNER BEHIND THE COMMEMORATIVE COIN
James Earle Fraser (1876-1953), one of America's most renowned sculptors and medallic artists, was a student of another famous American sculptor - Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Mr. Fraser carried over his sculpting talent to the medallic arts. He is probably best known for his famous sculpture entitled "The End of the Trail." Having grown up in the Dakota Territory, Mr. Fraser witnessed first-hand this country's westward expansion and its impact on Native American communities.

This is the highly sought 2001 American Buffalo Commemorative "Silver Dollar CAMEO Proof" Coin authorized by an Act of the U.S. Congress, made for the "Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian" and Released by the U.S. Mint. It comes with the original Velvet Display Case, Box and Certificate of Authenticity. Original, New Condition.

This coin was authorized to commemorate the National Museum of the American Indian of the Smithsonian Institution, the museum's opening, and to supplement the museum's ongoing endowment and educational funds.

The fate of the American Buffalo - or bison - was linked to the fate of the Native American, and vice versa. Native Americans hunted the bison and used the carcass for everything from shelter and food to needles and cooking implements --they were known for wasting nothing.

The study of Native Americans, including their language, literature, history, art and anthropology, is the purpose of the proposed National Museum of the American Indian. The museum will feature more than 10,000 years of American history. The 260,000 square foot museum is scheduled to open on the National Mall near the U.S. Capitol in 2004 and is expected to attract about 6 million visitors a year. Ground was broken for the museum on September 28, 1999.

Bidder or Seller Feed Back

  • If you are a BIDDER and have any Negative Feed Back as a "NPB" (Non-Paying Bidder) for failing to send payment, confirm auctions, or make contact, causing seller claims for listing & final value fee credit from eBay...

  • If you are a SELLER and have any Negative Feed Back for non-shipment, excessive delay, no refund, no exchange, or over charge on S/H/I...

  • If you are a BIDDER or SELLER and your feed back history indicates you leave negative feed back comments that are obviously retaliatory, inflammatory, contain mean, nasty personal attacks...

  • If you don't intend to leave factual, truthful and honest comments to me then do not participate in my auction or listing!

  • The item description, pictures, my auction terms, etc. - your submission of any questions prior to your placing any bid - communication after the listing closes - confirming information with your name, address, item number and a timely payment will be essential to a successful transaction with POSITIVE FEED BACK for us both.

  • I believe ALL problems that may arise in a transaction can be resolved through direct, post-auction communication or mediation by a third party such as SquareTrade.



I will not deliberately, or knowingly make an item picture or description mistake. I want you to be completely satisfied with your treasure, but there will be NO REFUNDS for "bidder's remorse". Please ask your questions BEFORE entering your bid. If you need clarification, want to know more about the item, shipping, etc. e-mail PRIOR to entering into the bidding so I can respond, modify the description, send a picture, or link you to other pictures at
