First minted in 2006, the American Buffalo-more commonly known as the Gold Buffalo coin became the first ever pure .9999, 24-karat gold coin to be struck by the United States Mint and introduced to the public. Prior to the Gold Buffalo coin being struck, gold made a comeback in the United States when they minted the American Gold Eagle in 1986.

For this and many other reasons discussed below, the American Gold Buffalo has quickly become one of the most sought after gold coins by investors and serious precious metals collectors across the globe.
Adding A Piece Of History To Your Collection
The American Gold Buffalo coin not only boasts the highest gold content of any American minted coin, it also showcases the historically rich (Type 1) Indian Head Nickel design, originally created by James Earle Fraser in 1913.
In 1911, Fraser was commissioned to redesign the Liberty Nickel. His design is generally thought of as one of the best designed coins from the U.S. Mint to date. One side of the Gold Buffalo coin features a buffalo with the motto E Pluribus Unum above the buffalo’s back and In God We Trust on the lower corner by the buffalo’s head. On the obverse side can be found the profile of an Indian Chieftain. James Earle Fraser designed this profile by fusing the portraits of three different chiefs from three different tribes. The features of Big Tree of Kiowa, Iron Tail of the Sioux tribe, and Two Moons of Cheyenne can all be found on the American Gold Buffalo.
