In the early 1970s, the ANA board of governors recognized that something significant needed to be done about the counterfeit and altered coins that were plaguing the coin community. Their solution was ANACS, the American Numismatic Association Certification Service. ANACS began with a staff of two experts with Washington D.C. as its home. Washington was chosen in order to utilize the Smithsonian’s Numismatic Collection and to be near the Treasury Department, specifically the Secret Service.


The obverse, of the 2008 W Gold American Buffalo features a Native American profile, believed to be a composite of different individuals, which pays tribute to the classic design of the Buffalo Nickel. The profile is facing right, adorned with feathers in the hair. The word "Liberty" is inscribed above the portrait, while the minting year, "2008," is positioned below the neck along with the "W" Mint mark.. On the reverse, the design showcases an American Buffalo, also known as a bison, standing on a mound. The buffalo image is inspired by the original design created by James Earle Fraser in 1913 for the Buffalo Nickel. The words "United States of America," "E Pluribus Unum," the weight, denomination.
