Introduced in 2005 under the Presidential $1 Coin Act, the 1 oz Gold American Buffalo is the US Mint’s first pure gold (.9999 fine) bullion coin. (Show more....) Struck at the Mint’s West Point, NY facility, these American gold buffalo coins are made exclusively of gold mined in the USA.
The 1 oz gold American buffalo coin’s design is based on one of America’s most popular circulation coins, the “Indian Head” or “Buffalo Nickel” that was introduced in 1913. The original Type 1 design was executed by the noted sculptor James Earle Fraser, who was a student of Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the designer of the coin that inspired the American Eagle coin.
On the obverse surface of the 1 oz gold buffalo coin is the portrait of a proud Native American male, paying homage to America’s first inhabitants and their rich history. The powerful American Buffalo that appears on the reverse surface of the 1 oz gold buffalo coin honors the fauna and landscape of the great American West and the pioneering spirit that conquered it. Amidst these heroic emblems are inscriptions of the coin’s weight, face value and year of mintage.
The weight, content and purity of the Gold American Buffalo 1 oz coin are guaranteed by the Government of the United States of America.
