Product Description

These Gold Buffalos signify a remarkable achievement as the inaugural coins minted by the US Mint in .9999 pure gold (24 karat gold). Available exclusively in one-ounce sizes, these coins guarantee weight, content, and purity, making them an ideal investment option.

The American Gold Buffalo’s obverse showcases a composite portrait of three esteemed Native American Chiefs: Chief Iron Tail of the Oglala Lakota, Chief John Big Tree of the Kiowa, and Chief Two Moons of the Cheyenne. Crafted by James Earle Fraser for the historic Buffalo Nickel, this design remains an enduring symbol of American numismatic artistry, chosen to grace the American Gold Buffalo. Inscriptions on the obverse are LIBERTY and 2008.


On the reverse, you’ll discover the profile of an American Buffalo, believed to be inspired by Black Diamond of the Central Park Zoo, the largest American buffalo in captivity during that era. Fraser’s original design for the Buffalo Nickel was so beloved that it was reprised for the Gold Buffalo. Inscriptions on the reverse are UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM, IN GOD WE TRUST, 1 OZ. .9999 FINE GOLD, and $50.


The inception of the American Gold Buffalo Coin series traces back to the Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005, which mandated the production of a one-ounce .9999 pure gold bullion coin sourced from newly mined domestic gold. This initiative aligned the US Mint’s offerings with global market demands, echoing the preferences of investors who sought .9999 pure gold coins.
