Buffalo gold coins are limited edition coins and among the most sought-after and sought-after products produced by the US Mint. Based on the very popular Nickel Type I Buffalo, these coins were reintroduced as the first gold-tested 24-carat coin achieved by the US Mint.
Designed by James Earle Fraser, a student of the legendary sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens, this timeless design remained in use for 25 years and then was not seen again until 2001 with the launch of the Buffalo commemorative coin of America.
The front and back of the American Buffalo Gold Coin feature images originally created for the US five-cent coin originally presented in 1913. That popular coin, known as “Indian Head,” or “Buffalo Nickel,” shows the native beauty of the American West.
The American Buffalo Coins are collector’s versions of the official US gold coins Buffalo Mint. Each coin contains an ounce of .9999 fine gold, 24 carats, and is presented in an elegant hardwood box with distinctive touches and is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity. In addition, long-term savers may include American Buffalos in their individual retirement accounts (IRAs).
