 American Gold Buffalos (2017 & Prior)

American Gold Buffalos (2017 & Prior)

American Gold Buffalos (2017 & Prior)

In 2005, Congress passed Public Law 109-145—the Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005—which, among other things, mandated that the United States Mint issue a .9999 fine gold bullion coin, having a face value of $50, and struck from gold newly mined in the United States.

The resulting gold coin was the American Gold buffalo, which for the first time allowed gold bullion investors a 24-karat alternative to the .9999 fine Canadian Maple Leaf. As a product of the United States Mint, it had the not-insubstantial benefit of backing by the US Government as to weight, purity, and content.  Thus, the American Gold Buffalo joins the American Gold Eagle as being one of the most popular investment-grade bullion coins, accepted worldwide, and eligible for IRA inclusion.

The American Gold Buffalo, minted exclusively at the US Mint’s West Point Facility, contains a full troy ounce of .9999 fine, 24-karat gold, and replicates almost exactly the design of James Earle Fraser’s familiar Buffalo (a/k/a Indian Head) Type I Nickel that could be found in almost every American’s pocket change until shortly after the design’s discontinuance in 1938. 

The Gold Buffalo’s obverse features the right-facing profile of an anonymous, but regal Indian chief, with LIBERTY, the year of mintage, and the designer’s initial (F) prominently displayed. Additionally, the West Point Mint’s mint mark (W) appears on its Proof, Uncirculated, and Reverse Proof states. The bullion version does not display a mint mark.

While some numismatic controversy surrounds the identity of the model for the obverse, the American Bison that graces its reverse is quite well known: “Black Diamond,” then a resident of New York’s Bronx Zoo.

The words UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM, IN GOD WE TRUST, 1 OZ. .9999 FINE GOLD, and the coin’s $50 denomination complete the reverse.

In 2008, the Mint offered the Gold Buffalo in fractional denominations in both Proof and Uncirculated (Burnished) states, struck at West Point, and displaying its W mint mark.

In addition to being sold separately, 2008 Gold Buffalos were available from the mint in 4-coin sets (one of each denomination) as well as a part of a special 2-coin set that paired a ½ oz. Gold Buffalo with a ½ oz. Gold Eagle. This exceptional set was marketed as the 8-8-08 Prosperity Set, commemorating August 8, 2008—a date held in high regard in many Asian cultures.

Besides offering raw American Gold Buffalos, in Proof, Uncirculated (Burnished,) Reverse Proof, and Bullion states, Goldmart is pleased to offer certified American Gold Buffalos that have been graded by both NGC and PCGS.

All but the Buffalo Proof State are IRA eligible.
