The Gold American Buffalo was introduced by the United States Mint in 2006. This year was the 20th anniversary of the American Eagle bullion series, a collection in which the US Mint offers a 22-karat gold coin. This was the perfect time for the mint to introduce a new gold bullion coin option that was designed to go up against the likes of the Gold Maple Leaf and Gold Britannia, both of which are 24-karat gold coins. The Gold Buffalo was the first-ever .9999 fine gold coin from the US Mint and remains the only one issued on an annual basis.
The obverse side of 2022 Gold American Buffalos comes with a depiction of an indigenous figure. Created in 1913 by James Earle Fraser for the Buffalo Nickel, this portrait of the indigenous leader was among the first depictions of indigenous people on American coinage.
On the reverse field of the 2022 1 oz Gold Buffalo is an image of the American bison. The largest land mammal in North America, the bison is a powerful creature with a thick, shaggy coat of fur and a large hump on its back just above its shoulders. The design shown here captures the beast in left-profile relief as it stands on a small mound of dirt.
