The Gold Buffalo coins from the United States Mint are like other major bullion coins in that a historic US coin design was chosen for the obverse and reverse. In this case, James Earle Fraser’s Buffalo Nickel design was selected. Featuring a Native American leader on one side and a bison on the other, the Buffalo Nickel was in circulation from 1913 to 1938.
In this listing you’ll receive a 1 oz Gold American Buffalo bullion coin in perfect condition. Mint State 70 coins have full, original mint luster and no detracting flaws of any kind. These coins also come with varied labels attached, such as Early Release or First Strike. These identify coins received for grading within the first 30 days of the date of issue in their release year by the US Mint.
Silver.com will not guarantee a year of issue or label with your purchase today. While we can guarantee all coins are in MS70 condition, the specific year of availability (2006-present) and label in the slab will be determined by availability in our warehouse when your order is processed for shipping.
On the obverse of the Gold American Buffalo coin is the image of a Native American individual. This right-profile effigy was created by Fraser through the combination of various facial features inspired by real-world leaders of the early 20th century.
The reverse of all 1 oz Gold American Buffalo Coins bears the design of an American bison. The buffalo was critical to life for thousands of Native American tribes, and the design on these coins was inspired by Black Diamond. This bison lived in New York City’s Central Park Zoo in the early 1900s.
