From its founding in 1792 until 2006, the United States Mint had issued a wide range of different types of coins for circulation, as well as proof collectible and investment-grade bullion purposes. However, throughout that 220-plus year timeframe, the US Mint had never issued a 24-karat gold coin. In 2006, that all changed with the debut of the Gold American Buffalo coin. For those looking to collect this beautiful design with gold visuals at an affordable price, Gold American Buffalo Tribute Coins are the answer. Right now, Gold American Buffalo Tribute Coins with a 24-karat clad gold layer are available to purchase online at Silver.com.

Gold Buffalos from the United States Mint represent the first-ever 24-karat gold coin from the US Mint. Expensive to purchase as the gold bullion coin from the US Mint, these Gold American Buffalo Tribute Coins are an excellent alternative. You get the same beautiful designs with a 24-karat gold layer and the matching inscriptions of the bullion coin, without the higher premiums associated with legal tender bullion coins.
On the obverse side of the Gold Buffalo Tribute Coin is a depiction of an indigenous tribal figure. The right-profile relief captures the image of a stoic indigenous leader with braided hair and feathers woven in near the back of his head. The imagery found here was created in 1913 by James Earle Fraser. Mr. Fraser’s design was created by combining the facial features of three real-life indigenous leaders from the early 20th century.
The reverse field of Gold American Buffalo Tribute Coins comes with an image of the American bison. One of two subspecies of bison alive today, the American bison is the largest land mammal in North America. The bison was critical to the livelihood and culture of indigenous tribes across the American Plains and was a natural combination with the indigenous figure on the obverse of the Buffalo Nickel coin, the US nickel design in production from 1913 to 1938 that inspired the Gold Buffalo.
