Gold American Buffalo Coins for Sale

The American Buffalo is the United State’s first large-scale circulation of .9999 fine gold coins in the U.S. Mint’s history. With the mint’s weight, content and purity guarantee, this American-made gold beauty is backed by the United States government and offers investors all the security and liquidity of a world-class gold coin.

The obverse side of the American Gold Buffalo features the profile of a Native American man; while on the reverse side an American bison stands in profile, an image modeled after "Black Diamond," a popular attraction in the New York Zoological Gardens in the early 20th century. The coin's images were created by American sculptor James Earle Fraser and were previously featured on the Indian Head Nickel, also known as the 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 and is minted at the United States Mint in West Point, New York, but does not feature any mint mark.
