Gold Buffalo Sets - In 2006, the United States Mint introduced its first 1 oz .9999 fine Gold coin with the Gold Buffalo. These coins were instantly a huge success, providing competition for the Canadian Gold Maple Leafs. In 2008, for one year only, the U.S. Mint produced four sizes of Gold Buffalos. This allows for a variety of sets to be created and easily purchased.
The Gold Buffalo coin is designed after James Earle Fraser's famous 1913 Type 1 Buffalo Nickel. The obverse shows the well-known Indian Head design, created by combining images of three Native American chiefs: Iron Tail (Lakota), Two Moons (Cheyenne) and John Big Tree (Seneca). The reverse features the classic buffalo design modeled after Black Diamond, the bison living in New York City's Central Park Zoo in the early 1900s, as well as inscriptions of the weight, denomination and Gold content.
Gold Buffalo sets are a great way to purchase more Gold in one easy step. Additionally, there are options available for Gold Buffalo sets where you will find sets of Brilliant Uncirculated or Proof coins. You can also choose from sets featuring all years or different sets featuring all four sizes minted in 2008 only. Whatever you may be looking for, you are sure to find it here.
