Product Description

In 2006, the US Mint heralded the introduction of the American Gold Buffalo coin series, a milestone in the realm of precious metals. This series proudly presents the first .9999 pure gold (24 karat gold) coins minted by the US Mint, complementing the renowned American Eagle Gold coin series, distinguished by its 22-karat gold content. These Gold Buffalos stand as a testament to solid investments, backed by the US government’s guarantee. Though holding a nominal $50 face value, their true value historically transcends this symbolic denomination, aligning with the far greater value of the gold they embody. BGASC is thrilled to offer the 2006 1 oz American Gold Buffalo Coin, a prized addition for discerning collectors and investors.

Impeccably etched on the American Gold Buffalo’s obverse is the profile of a Native American Chief, an artistic masterpiece originally crafted by James Earle Fraser for the iconic Indian Head or Buffalo Nickel, a circulating currency from 1913 to 1938. This revered Chief is believed to amalgamate the spirit of three distinguished leaders: Chief Iron Tail of the Oglala Lakota, Chief John Big Tree of the Kiowa, and Chief Two Moons of the Cheyenne. Collectors recognize this rendition fondly as Fraser’s 1913, Type I design, paying homage to the legacy of our country’s indigenous roots. Inscriptions on the obverse are LIBERTY and 2006.


Flipping over to the American Gold Buffalo’s reverse, the portrayal of an American Buffalo takes center stage. Another masterstroke by James Earle Fraser, this design draws inspiration from Black Diamond, an awe-inspiring American buffalo, the largest held in captivity during that era. Symbolizing the resilience and fortitude of the American spirit, the majestic Buffalo serves as a tribute to our pioneering expansion into the Western frontier. Inscriptions on the reverse are UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM, IN GOD WE TRUST, 1 OZ. .9999 FINE GOLD, and $50.


Crafted from .9999 pure gold sourced exclusively from domestic mines, the Gold Buffalo coins materialized due to the Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005. This groundbreaking act mandated the usage of newly mined domestic gold in their production. Marking a significant milestone, these coins represent the US government’s debut in producing 24-karat gold coins, aligning with global trends in bullion offerings. Struck at the esteemed West Point Mint, the bullion coins bear no mint mark, a hallmark of their exceptional craftsmanship.
