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.

Bullion with Numismatic Value

By  Boca Jim

from Dahlonega, GA

5.0

I believe the lower mintage American Buffalo gold coins (compared to American Eagle mintages) have a greater chance of realizing numismatic value. To my eye, at least, the James Earle Fraser Buffalo design is far superior to any bullion coin on the market. Finally, by purchasing PCGS graded coins from APMEX, one eliminates the Mint's massive overkill of cardboard containers and wooden boxes which require substantial storage space.

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Mint Condition

Gold Buffalo Coin Offers Historical Links

The Gold Buffalo offers an extraordinary opportunity to invest in the future while maintaining a link to the past. On the obverse is James Earle Fraser's profile portrait of a Native American chief. The profile reflects the artist's studies of three different Native American chiefs: Seneca Chief Big John Tree, Lakota Chief Iron Tail and Cheyenne Chief Two Moons. This classic profile first appeared on the historic Buffalo Nickel when this coin started being issued in 1913, making the design more than a century old.

On the reverse of the Gold Buffalo tribute proof, you will find an image of the American buffalo. Experts believe the figure represents Black Diamond, a buffalo that resided at the Central Park Zoo at the turn of the 20th century. The reverse design is also adapted from the 1913 original design, making this coin a true Gold Buffalo Nickel.

The U.S. Mint first authorized the Buffalo Gold in 2005 and the first 1 oz Gold Buffalo Nickels were struck in 2006. These Gold coins are struck at New York's West Point Mint. This famous mint also produces American Eagle coins and several commemorative coins in Precious Metals ranging from Gold and Silver to Platinum. The 2016 Gold Buffalo tribute proof is a sovereign coin, backed by the U.S. government. Do not miss this opportunity to add these coins to your portfolio.
