Gold Buffalos - In 2006, the United States Mint introduced its first and only 1 oz .9999 Gold coin with the Gold Buffalo. These coins were instantly a huge success, providing competition for the Canadian Gold Maple Leafs. Since then, the Gold Buffalo has become a widely popular addition to any Gold bullion collection.
The Gold Buffalo coin is designed after James Earle Fraser's famous 1913 Type 1 Buffalo Nickel. The obverse shows the well-known Indian Head design, created by combining the images of three Native American chiefs: Iron Tail (Lakota), Two Moons (Cheyenne) and John Big Tree (Seneca). The reverse features the classic buffalo design modeled after Black Diamond, the bison living in New York City's Central Park Zoo in the early 1900s, as well as inscriptions of the weight, denomination and Gold content.
This coin is still the only 1 oz .9999 Gold coin produced by the U.S. Mint. Purchase options include Brilliant Uncirculated coins individually or with a box and certificate of authenticity. Select a specific year ranging from the current minting issue back through the first year of issue or order the Random Year option.
