Gold American Buffalos
Monex, America's trusted name in precious metals for more than forty years, is proud to offer a one-of-a-kind masterpiece...the gold American Buffalo, the first pure 24-karat gold bullion coin produced by the United States Mint.
Authorized by Congress through the Presidential Coin Act of 2005, the gold American Buffalo was first minted in 2006, and more than 300,000 of the coins were produced and sold that year.
Unlike previous American gold coinage, which has traditionally been 22-karat (or .9167 fine), the American Buffalo is unique in that it represents the United States' first large-scale circulation of a .9999 (or four-nines) fine gold coin in the Mint's history.
The obverse side of the gold American Buffalo features the profile of a Native American man, while the reverse side features the silhouette of an American bison standing in profile, 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 -- designer of the popular $20 gold Double Eagle minted from 1907 to 1933. The images were originally featured on the popular "Indian Head" or "Buffalo" nickel, minted in the U.S. from 1913 to 1938.
Each American Buffalo coin contains exactly one troy ounce (or 31.1035 grams) of pure gold. Its diameter is 1.287 inches (or 32.70mm), with a thickness of 0.116 inches (or 2.95mm), making it approximately the same size as a U.S. half dollar coin.
The gold American Buffalo features a face value of $50 on the reverse side of the coin, is minted at the United States Mint in West Point, New York, but does not feature any mint mark. 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.
Monex offers the one-ounce gold American Buffalo in units of 10 coins. The coins can be purchased outright for personal delivery or can be financed through the exclusive Monex ATLAS account. Additionally, these coins are suitable for an IRA investment.
Produced in America...pure "four-nines" fine quality...and its weight, content, and purity guaranteed by the United States Mint, the gold American Buffalo offers investors all the security, liquidity and protection of a world-class gold coin...and it's backed by the U.S. government.
