Now in its fourth year, the Gold American Buffalo coin series continues to be offered only in the one-ounce size. They are investment-grade coins, as their weight, content, and purity are guaranteed by the US government. The US Mint produced Proof and Uncirculated collector versions of the Gold Buffalos in 2008, in 4 different weights, but they were discontinued in 2009. The one ounce Bullion and Proof Gold Buffalos are struck at the West Point Mint, with only the Proof coins bearing a W mint mark. Silver.com currently has the 2009 1 oz Gold American Buffalo coin available for purchase.

Coin Highlights:

  • Ships in a protective plastic flip!
  • 4th year of the Gold American Buffalo coin series!
  • Consists of One Troy ounce of .9999 pure gold.
  • A Native American is featured on the obverse.
  • An American Buffalo is featured on the reverse.
  • Total of 200,000 coins were minted in 2009.
  • Has a face value of $50 (USD), guaranteed by the US government.

The Gold American Buffalo coin production suspension that occurred in late 2008 carried over into 2009. There were rumors that the coins might not even be produced in 2009, but the US Mint denied this. The 2009 Gold Buffalo bullion coins became available for purchase on October 15, 2009. As a result of the pent-up demand for them, sales were so strong from the start that by December 4, 2009, the US Mint had sold its entire inventory of 200,000 coins. This happened in less than 2 months!

The profile of a Native American chief continued to be featured on the obverse of the Gold American Buffalo in this 4th year of the series. The composite profiles of 3 Chiefs:  Chief Iron Tail, Chief John Big Tree, and Chief Two Moons are considered to be the basis for this Native American Chief profile. Originally created for the Indian Head or Buffalo Nickel by James Earle Fraser, collectors know this as Fraser’s 1913, Type I design. Considered to be one of the best US coin designs, it was chosen to appear again on the Gold Buffalo.

The profile of an American Buffalo once again is featured on the reverse of the Gold American Buffalo coins. Originally created for the Buffalo Nickel by James Earle Fraser, this design was so highly acclaimed that it was chosen to appear again on the Gold American Buffalo coin series. It is believed that the inspiration for this Buffalo profile was Black Diamond of the Central Park Zoo, considered to be the largest American buffalo in captivity.

The Gold American Buffalo coin series was created as a result of the Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005. It mandated the production of the US government’s first one ounce .9999 pure gold bullion coin, to be struck using only gold from domestic sources. The creation of a .9999 pure gold coin was to help the US keep pace with other countries, such as Canada and China, which already had 24 karat gold coin offerings. Investors often had a preference for .9999 pure gold coins and the US had nothing to offer.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

How can I contact you?

Please feel welcome to call us toll free at 1(888) 989-7223 or use our Live Chat feature during normal business hours Monday through Friday, 08:00 a.m. to 06:00 p.m. CST. Alternatively, you can email us at help@silver.com and expect a response within 1 business day.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
