The 1 OZ American Buffalo Gold Coin (Dates Our Choice)

The U.S. Mint 1 oz American Buffalo Gold coin is a remarkable tribute to American heritage and craftsmanship. Launched in 2006, this coin quickly garnered attention for its stunning design and impeccable quality. It is struck from .9999 fine gold (99.99% pure), making it one of the purest gold coins ever produced by the United States Mint. Each coin is minted at the West Point Mint.

Coin Highlights:

    • Pure Gold Content: The Gold Buffalo coin is struck from 24-karat gold, containing a pure gold precious metal content of 1 troy ounce (31.1035 grams). This high level of purity adds to its melt value and appeal to collectors and investors alike. They also qualify for storage in a self-directed precious metals IRA.

    • Legal Tender: Despite its impressive gold content and collectible status, the Gold Buffalo coin holds a face value of $50, backed by the United States government. This legal tender currency status provides assurance of its authenticity and guarantees its content, weight, and purity.

    • Limited Mintage: The U.S. Mint typically produces American Buffalo gold bullion coins in limited quantities each year, enhancing their desirability among collectors. Limited mintage adds to the exclusivity and potential for appreciation over time.

    • Proof and Uncirculated Versions: The U.S. Mint issues both proof and uncirculated versions of the Gold Buffalo coin, catering to different preferences within the numismatic community. Proof gold coins are meticulously struck multiple times using specially polished dies, resulting in a mirror-like finish with intricate detail. Brilliant uncirculated coins (BU), on the other hand, feature a matte finish, preserving the coin's original luster.


The obverse of the Gold Buffalo coin features a portrayal of a Native American chief, inspired by James Earle Fraser's iconic Buffalo Nickel design from 1913, also commonly referred to as the Indian Head Nickel. The inspiration was from three Native Americans, namely Big Tree, Two Moons, and Iron Tail. The stylized portrait includes feathers in his hair and a braided lock of his hair. This powerful and dignified profile captures the spirit of the American West. The word "LIBERTY" is found on the front along with the year and mint mark W.

The reverse side of this gold coin showcases an image of an American buffalo, or bison, standing atop a mound. This majestic creature symbolizes the strength, resilience, and natural beauty of the American landscape. On the back are the words "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "IN GOD WE TRUST," "$50," and, "1 OZ. .9999 FINE GOLD."

Iconic Design

The Gold Buffalo coin pays homage to classic American coinage designs while incorporating modern minting techniques. Its timeless aesthetic and superb craftsmanship make it a prized addition to any investment collection.

In summary, the U.S. Mint Gold Buffalo coin stands as a shining example of American numismatic coin excellence, combining unparalleled purity, stunning design, and enduring value. Whether sought after by collectors or investors, this prestigious gold bullion coin continues to captivate enthusiasts worldwide.

    Beautiful coin, and a solid financial asset
    I already own three of these beautiful 1-oz. American Buffaloes, and will be buying more, both for their beauty and as a solid, long-term holding of a valuable financial asset that's instantly recognized and liquid everywhere around the world. Since they're pure gold, they're soft, and without the hardening alloy of silver (the U.S. Mint's St. Gaudens 1-oz. coin) or the Krugerrand (alloyed with copper for similar durability), can't and of course aren't meant to be carried (as if anybody would carry the others in their pants pocket anyway?!). Since the Buffalo is an official issue of the U.S. Mint, it's instantly recognizable, and its accurate value instantly known, anywhere that says "We Buy Gold, Silver..." with zero dispute about whether it's genuine or what an ounce of pure gold is worth, to the minute, on the international market. That's why I'm going to be buying more of these. And yes, I'll order them from MME as a longtime, always-satisfied customer.

    Exactly as advertised
    The aesthetics of the gold buffalo, in my opinion, is far superior to the golden eagles. Beautiful, 24K gold- I'd take a stack of these...

    Bold and striking with gold to back it up. Have many more for my Grandchildren to enjoy; gave my daughter her coins already.

    American buffalo 1 oz.
    I'm very happy with this gold coin. Money Metals has excellent customer service. I thought I would never be able to purchase some gold, but patience won out.
