The history of the Gold Buffalo coin
The 1 oz Gold Buffalo was first offered for sale by the U.S. Mint in 2006. The Gold Buffalo coin was inspired by James Earle Fraser’s much-loved design of the Indian Head nickel, first issued in 1913. The modern Gold coins marked the first time the United States government minted a .9999 fine Gold coin. The price of Gold Buffalos when the Gold bullion coins were first minted was $800, which included the Gold spot price plus costs of distribution, fabrication and nominal dealer fee.
Why invest in the Gold Buffalo coin?
Investors add the 1 oz Gold Buffalo to their physical Gold holdings because of its connection to U.S. history and its high-quality .9999 fine Gold. The Gold Buffalo coin was the first .9999 fine Gold coin issued by the U.S. Mint and it is backed by the U.S. government. Gold coins like the 1 oz Gold Buffalo, and other Gold coins from respected world mints, combine collectibility with bullion investment appeal. During inflationary times, the price of Gold is often stable so the value of the Gold Buffalo coin can more readily hold its value.
Rush to buy Gold coins and celebrate America’s longstanding relationship with this Precious Metal.
The Gold Buffalo coin and other U.S. Mint Gold coins celebrate U.S. history and culture, paying tribute to significant moments and personalities. The 1 oz Gold Buffalo coin, for example, features a composite of three chiefs from different tribes: Big Tree, Iron Tail and Two Moons, although many men claimed to be the sole model for the coin. In turn, the discovery of Gold and the subsequent refining into Gold coins helped shape American history and identity, including mobilizing the settlement of California and its inclusion in the union in 1850. Gold rushes and the price of Gold captured imaginations and inspired many adventurers to move west to find fortune and also sparked worldwide interest in prospecting for Gold.
Adding Gold coins to your investment portfolio creates some much-needed balance.
Physical Precious Metals, like Gold coins or bars, are ideal for a Precious Metals IRA, but first you must set up a custodian to hold your physical Gold bullion. The 1 oz Gold Buffalo is eligible for this self-directed Precious Metals IRA and just like regular IRAs, any profits on your Gold investments sales can be tax deferred as long as the proceeds are kept with your custodian or transferred to another IRA account. Gold bullion, like the Gold Buffalo coin, generally must be at least .995 fine Gold to be eligible. As the price of Gold often moves in the opposite direction of stocks, bonds and Treasury bills, including physical Gold in your Precious Metals IRA may provide a hedge against unstable markets and help keep your portfolio balanced.
