The 1oz Gold American Buffalo (Mixed Years)
First issued in 2006, the 1oz American Buffalo was the United States Mint's first ever 24-carat gold coin. The Buffalo was authorised by Congress in 2005 when the Presidential $1 Coin Act decreed that a 24-carat one-ounce gold coin with a face value of $50 and a mintage not exceeding 300,000 be produced. Today, you can buy Gold 1oz American Buffalo coins from mixed years with StoneX Bullion to instantly increase the value of your portfolio or collection.
A unique coin with mass appeal
The Gold American Buffalo combines one troy ounce of fine. 9999 gold with much-loved reverse and obverse images based on the Indian Head nickel or Buffalo nickel that was issued between 1913 and 1938. The original engravings were created by sculptor James Earle Fraser and are largely unchanged. The coin's reverse shows a magnificent American bison or buffalo. These iconic animals used to roam the plains and grasslands of America in massive herds. Turn the coin over to reveal the superb Indian Head obverse design; the drawing of a Native American chief is an amalgamation of the features of three chiefs who sat for artist James Earle Fraser, Big Tree, Two Moons, and Iron Trail.
Why pick the 1oz Gold Buffalo?
