The history of Gold Buffalo coins

Gold Buffalo coins are minted featuring a modification of James Earle Fraser’s iconic design for the Indian Head nickel. The Gold Buffalo coin’s modified design is regarded as one of the best of any U.S. coin and was even used on the 2001 Smithsonian commemorative coin. The obverse of the American Gold Buffalo showcases a Native American who Fraser said is a mixture of chiefs from different tribes. Three chiefs posed for Fraser before he designed the profile found on these American Gold coins: Big Tree, a war chief of the Kiowa; Iron Tail, an Oglala Lakota performer in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show; and Two Moons, one of the Cheyenne chiefs who took part in the Battle of the Little Bighorn against the U.S. Army.

Why invest in 1 oz Gold Buffalo coins?

Gold Buffalo coins are popular with investors around the world for their high .9999 fine Gold content, with a beautiful design as an added bonus. Although Gold Buffalo coins have a face value of $50, the purchase price is based on the value of the raw unfabricated Gold, known as the spot price, which no one pays when buying Gold. The price of Gold you pay includes the premium price, or the premium over spot price, and it includes the cost of fabrication, distribution, a small dealer fee and any numismatic or collector value. These American Gold Buffalos and other Precious Metal coins hold their value even when paper investments falter. When you choose American Gold coins or any other Gold coins, you join others who see Gold bullion as an investment that maintains its value over time.

Invest in 1 oz Gold Buffalo coins and own a piece of American history.

The modern Gold Buffalo, an investment coin prized around the world, is named for the buffalo featured on the reverse. Depicted on Gold Buffalo coins of today, as well as the vintage 1913 Buffalo Nickel, is the profile of a buffalo widely believed to be Black Diamond, a buffalo that lived in New York City’s Central Park Zoo during the 1910s. The vintage and modern American Gold Buffalo coin design might not exist without the assistance of an unknown person that some people believe Fraser relied on to distract Black Diamond. Without someone to distract Black Diamond, Fraser could not have gotten the profile he wanted for the coin design, which is commemorated on the modern American Gold coins.

Low Premium over Spot

4.0

For me, this coin is a hedge against future debt/ monetary problems. It's a great value as it's a well-known brand and it will be relatively easy to sell in the future. It's not very attractive, in my opinion, but a necessary part of my diversified metal holdings.

Pros

Stunning design with the look of gold

By  Doggorunning

from Suffolk va

5.0

Compared to the Golden Eagles these coins are very beautiful the design is deep and the gold content in these being solid gold makes these coins much more shiny and beautiful to look at Compared to the Eagles. With that in mind the Golden Eagles are more recognized and would be easier to handle and tougher due to being mixed with other metals but the beauty of these is amazing
