The Gold American Buffalo coin from the United States Mint is the purest coin in US history. Prior to 1837, US gold coins had a purity level known as crown gold which was equivalent to 22-karat gold. All coins issued from 1837 to 1933 when gold coinage was halted were .900. The Gold American Buffalo broke that mold when it debuted in 2006.

Gold American Buffalo coins revive the popular design from the Buffalo Nickel. Issued between 1913 and 1938, the Buffalo Nickel was designed by James Earle Fraser for the US Mint and depicted images inspired by his life growing up in the Midwest. Fraser’s father worked for the railway out of Winona, Minnesota, and he followed his father on work travels with the rail company through Minnesota and the Dakotas.
On the obverse side of 2019 1 oz Gold American Buffalo Coins is the right-profile portrait of a Native American. This portrait was developed by combining the facial features of three different indigenous leaders of the early 20th century. Engravings include the word “Liberty,” the year of issue of “2019” on the shoulder of the figure, and the “F” initial of Fraser.
The reverse face of 2019 Gold American Buffalo Coins includes the image of Black Diamond. The American bison, or buffalo, is the largest and heaviest land mammal on the North American continent. Black Diamond was a resident of the Central Park Zoo in New York City in the early 1900s and is accompanied on this side by engravings of “United States of America,” “E Pluribus Unum,” “In God We Trust,” “$50,” and “1 oz .9999 Fine Gold.”
All Gold American Buffalo coins are issued by the United States Mint through its coining facility at the West Point Mint in the US state of New York.
