Information about Gold American Buffalo 1 oz
The Gold American Buffalo has been in production by the US Mint since 2006, marking the first North American coin crafted from fine gold with a remarkable fineness level of 999.9.
Similar to the Gold American Eagle, the Gold American Buffalo is struck at the West Point facility in New York. This coin holds the esteemed status of legal tender within the United States. Due to its relatively brief period of minting, the Gold American Buffalo is available in limited quantities and can be challenging to obtain outside of the US.
The design of the Gold American Buffalo draws inspiration from the 5-cent coin dating back to 1913, commonly known as the "Indian Head Nickel" or "Buffalo Nickel." Just like its predecessor, the obverse side of the American Buffalo gold coin features a portrait of a Native American, although the specific individual is uncertain; Chief Iron Tail of the Lakota Sioux, Two Moons of the Cheyenne, and John Big Tree of the Seneca all posed for this portrait. On the reverse side of the American Buffalo gold coin, you'll find an image of a North American buffalo set against a grassy hill, widely believed to be "Black Diamond," a prominent resident of the Central Park Zoo in New York.
