American Buffalo Gold Coin



The American Buffalo One Ounce Gold Coin is based on the highly popular Type I Buffalo Nickel (or Indian Head) 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 release of the American Buffalo Commemorative Coin.



In 2006, the United States Mint reintroduced the design by striking the first 24-karat gold proof coin ever struck by the United States Mint. These coins are collector versions of the official United States Mint American Buffalo Gold Bullion Coins. Each coin contains one ounce of .9999 fine, 24-karat gold and is presented in an elegant hardwood box with distinctive finishing touches, and is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
