Product Description

American Buffalo 1 oz Gold Coin

The American Buffalo 1 oz Gold Coin is part of the American Buffalo coins series from the US Mint.

The American Buffalo Coin series was introduced in 2006. The coins in the Gold Buffalo series are minted from 24 karat gold which makes them distinct from other popular coins produced by the US Mint. 

American Buffalo 1 oz Gold coin is minted annually. The number of coins minted in a given year is determined by investor demand. The coins are minted based on sales.

American Buffalo Gold Coin Design

The design of the Gold Buffalo coin is modeled after James Earle Fraser's famous 1913 Buffalo Nickel, commonly referred to as the Indian Head Nickel because of the profile depiction of a Native American Indian on the obverse of the coin. 

The reverse of the 1 oz gold coin features the classic buffalo design. The bison design was modeled after Black Diamond, a 1,550 pound bison living in New York City's Central Park Zoo in the early 1900s. The reverse also includes inscriptions detailing the weight, denomination and gold content.

The obverse of the American Gold Buffalo features a well-known portrait that was created a composite image by combining images of three notable Native American Indian chiefs.

The chiefs, Iron Tail of the Lakota tribe, Two Moons of the Cheyenne tribe, and John Big Tree of the Seneca tribe.  

James Earl Fraser, the coin's designer and sculpture, drew portraits of each chief, then combined prominent features from all three men into a composite sketch.
