Product Details

Introducing the third edition of the American Gold Buffalo coin series. These Gold Buffalos represent a historic milestone as the first coins minted by the US Mint in .9999 pure gold (24 karat gold). Available exclusively in one-ounce sizes, these coins boast guaranteed weight, content, and purity, making them a top choice for investment.

  • The obverse displays a Native American portrait.
  • The reverse depicts an American Buffalo portrait.

The Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005 set the stage for the production of a one-ounce .9999 pure gold bullion coin sourced from newly mined domestic gold. The inception of the American Gold Buffalo Coin series was a response to the global market, aligning the US Mint’s offerings with those of countries like Canada and China, meeting the demand for .9999 pure gold coins among investors.

Each 2008 1 oz American Gold Buffalo Coin will arrive in a protective plastic flip, preserving the condition of your gold coin. These coins represent the third release in the overall series.

The American Gold Buffalo’s obverse showcases a composite profile of three revered Native American Chiefs: Chief Iron Tail of the Oglala Lakota, Chief John Big Tree of the Kiowa, and Chief Two Moons of the Cheyenne. This design, created by James Earle Fraser for the historic Buffalo Nickel, remains an enduring symbol of American numismatic artistry, chosen to grace the American Gold Buffalo.

On the reverse, you’ll find the profile of an American Buffalo, believed to be inspired by Black Diamond of the Central Park Zoo, the largest American buffalo in captivity during that era. Fraser’s original design for the Buffalo Nickel was so beloved that it was reprised for the Gold Buffalo.

Our dedicated BullionMax team is here to guide you every step of the way. Reach out to us at 800-729-3202 via phone, online chat, or email for any queries, and secure your American Gold Buffalo today.
