Buffalo Gold Coin History

The Gold Buffalo coin design dates back to 1913. Though they are now cast in Gold, Buffalo Nickels provided the first iteration of this iconic design. James Earle Fraser, an early 20th-century sculptor, created the designs for both the obverse and reverse. The original Nickel coin lasted until 1938, and in 2006, the U.S. Mint released the designs on Gold bullion.

You might want a First Strike coin if you enjoy collecting bullion as soon as it is minted. The early-release coins hold the same value as those produced later, but many collectors appreciate the chance to buy American Buffalo Gold coins when they come from the U.S. Mint.

Take Advantage of APMEX's First Strike NGC MS-70 FS Gold Buffalos

Beautiful coin. This is my first gold buffalo. I'll probably end up buying one MS70 FS from every year now. Can't go wrong when investing for both numismatic and intrinsic value. Note: I got this coin when purchasing a random year NGC/PCGS MS70 1 oz Gold Buffalo. GREAT deal!
