The US Mint guarantees each coin’s weight, content and purity which allows for confident trading and purchasing sight unseen by coin collectors.
In 2006, the market buzz surrounding the release of this very special issue was at it’s highest point. Today, collectors still anxiously anticipate this collecting opportunity. Many companies had some of their biggest months in sales because of the 24K Gold Buffalo. We have the ability to offer some back dated issues for collectors looking to previous year’s issues. We carry NGC and PCGS MS69 and MS70 Gold Buffalos as well as PR69 and PR70 Gold Buffalos.
The obverse side of the Gold American Buffalo Coin features the profile of a Native American Indian chief, while the reverse side features the silhouette of an American buffalo. The bison was modeled after “Black Diamond,” a popular attraction in the New York Zoological Gardens in the early part of the 20th century. The coin’s images were originally created by the American sculptor James Earle Fraser, a student of well-known sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens. The Indian and buffalo images were originally featured on the popular “Indian Head” or “Buffalo” nickel, minted in the U.S. from 1913 to 1938.
The Gold Buffalo Coin features a face value of $50 on the reverse and is minted at the United States Mint in West Point, New York, but does not feature any mint mark. Each American Buffalo Coin contains exactly one troy ounce of pure gold. By law, all of the gold used in the production of the American Buffalo bullion coin must be from newly-mined sources within the United States.
