Designed by James Earle Fraser for the 1913 to 1938 run of Indian Head Nickels, the obverse of the Gold Buffalo features the portrait of a Native American. It’s believed that this design is the amalgamation of three chiefs from different tribes: Two Moons of the Cheyenne, Big Tree of the Kiowa, and Iron Tail of the Lakota Sioux.
On the reverse, you’ll find a profile view of Black Diamond, a 1,550-pound American Bison that once lived at the Bronx Zoo in New York. This side also includes the coin’s denomination, weight, and purity.
Gold Buffalo coins are produced by the West Point branch of the US Mint, with a limited mintage of 300,000 coins per year. Authorized by the Presidential Coin Act of 2005, the Gold Buffalo is the only 24 karat gold (.9999) coin to ever be made and offered to the public by the US Mint.
Your order will be randomly selected from our inventory of MS70 slabbed Gold Buffalos. This inventory includes coins graded by NGC and PCGS, but all will have a perfect grade. Labels and dates will be randomized and limited to current inventory.
Each coin ships in a plastic slab sealed at the time of grading.
