The history of American Buffalo Gold coins
Investment in American Buffalo 2008 Gold coins recognizes that commerce around the world for centuries was based on the Gold Standard, meaning a currency could be traded for its value in Gold. The first U.S. Gold coin was the Eagle in 1792, when the U.S. dollar value was fixed to the value of 24.75 grains of Gold. Gold coin prices would affect the value of the dollar, so the U.S. would go off the Gold Standard when it needed greater monetary flexibility, such as during the Civil War. These 1 oz Gold coins now have a face value of $50, but the U.S. went off the Gold Standard in 1971 so the actual value of those coins varies with the Gold spot price, which is much higher than the face value.
