The history of Gold Buffalo coins
The Gold buffalo and Native American profile on the modern American Buffalo Gold bullion coin are based on the famous designs of the 1913 Buffalo nickel, also known as the Indian Head nickel. Gold Buffalo coins pay tribute to one of the most beloved coins in American history, which were part of President Teddy Roosevelt’s total redesign of American coins to beautify them. The Gold coin shows in sharp relief the intricate design often worn smooth on the nickels, which were replaced in 1938 partly because the design wore off so easily. Gold coins are the perfect medium for the exquisite lines created by sculptor James Earle Fraser.
Why invest in first-strike Gold Buffalo coins?
For the most exclusive of graded bullion, First Strike designates that these coins were among the first released from the mint. To be eligible for this designation, the coins have to be received by the grading service within the first 30 days of a coin's release. For collectors, a Gold coin marked as First Strike has added appeal, enhancing its value. Gold coins were first promoted as First Strike in 2005, and U.S. coins most commonly designated this way are American Gold Eagles, American Silver Eagles, American Platinum Eagles and Gold Buffalos. First Strike coins dated earlier than this are especially scarce, as they are only eligible if submitted in their original sealed package showing a postmark from the mint within the eligibility window.

Understand Gold Buffalo prices so you know what you are paying for and why.
Before buying a Gold Buffalo coin, it helps to know some of the terms of the Precious Metals market. To determine the price of a Gold coin, you must first start with the Gold spot price which is the price per ounce of unfabricated Gold ore set by global markets. When buying Gold Buffalo coins, you will pay a premium over the spot price. This price typically covers costs such as production, fabrication and dealer fees. The spread for Gold coins is the difference between the price a dealer would buy a Gold coin for and the price the dealer would sell that same Gold coin for.
