The Gold Buffalo is the United States’ first ever 24-karat (99.99% pure) gold coin. While it is a favorite among precious metal investors for this reason, it is also well-known for its iconic design (the Buffalo nickel design), which shows the profile of an American Indian man facing right.

90% Silver Coins

Another favorite from the U.S. Mint comes from recent history: 90% silver coins. The dime, quarter, and half dollar were composed of .900 fine silver up until 1965 (i.e. 1964 was the last year these silver coins were produced by the Mint). Although this may come as a surprise to may modern observers, the use of real silver coins for regular circulation and everyday commerce was the norm during the nearly two-century history of the U.S. Mint up that point. Today, many coin collectors and bullion investors seek these 90% silver coins, occasionally finding them in their pocket change by mistake!

Other Modern Products From the Mint

The U.S. Mint also produces a variety of numismatic, or collectible, coins. This includes the America the Beautiful (ATB) silver quarters (which also come in the form of 5 oz silver coins), the gold Presidential First Spouse coins, as well as gold and silver commemorative coins celebrating the rich history of the United States! The Mint is always coming out with new designs and new themes for its coins, keeping collectors and precious metal enthusiasts busy!
