The American Gold Buffalo pays homage to one of the most iconic coins in American history. First minted in 2006, the American Gold Buffalo was the first 1 oz Gold coin struck by the United States Mint containing .9999 fine Gold. The coin was created to compete with other pure Gold bullion coins on the market like the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf and the Mexican Gold Libertad, and saw immediate success. All American Gold Buffalos contain 1 oz of .9999 fine Gold; however, fractional sizes of this Gold bullion coin were minted in 2008 and this one year of production makes them highly collectible.

The design of this Gold bullion coin is based on James Earle Fraser’s iconic and wildly popular 1913 Buffalo Nickel. The obverse of the coin depicts the profile of a Native American man who was modeled after three different chiefs from Native American tribes: Lakota chief Iron Tail, Cheyenne chief Two Moons and Seneca chief John Big Tree. The reverse of the coin features the classic buffalo designed after Black Diamond, a 1,550-pound bison that lived in New York City’s Central Park Zoo in the early 1900s.

American Gold Buffalos are struck at the West Point Mint in New York. Known as the “Fort Knox of Silver”, the West Point Mint produces all American Eagle coins in Gold, Silver and Platinum as well as all Gold and some Silver commemorative coins.

Was looking for this Proof and came across the APMEX site. Very satisfied with the service provided specially their shipping, which was very fast. The set was delivered within 3 working days after making payment. They also included a small booklet of sticky notes as a free gift which in todays world of cost saving was a pleasant surprise. The coin, box and COA all came as described and the entire set was carefully packed in an unmarked box providing great security. Great coin to start a collection.

Low Mintage 16,559

By  Buffalo Bill

from USA

4.0

The U.S. Mint 2015-W 1 oz. Gold Proof Buffalo has the lowest mintage of the series @ 16,559. It is a good coin to have in a collection. My only criticism is the obvious wrinkle damage on the cardboard slip cover of the Original Government Packaging. This was a result of careless handling somewhere along the way. I would expect everything to be as pristine as when it came from the U.S. Mint. Otherwise the rest of the set was perfect including the coin itself, hardwood case with faux leather inset, the Certificate of Authenticity and the outer coin box.

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Easy to Sell
  • Recognized Brand

Cons

  • Poor Condition

Excellent coin for collective use and gift.
