Congress authorized the Gold Buffalo coin program in 2005, to meet the demand for an official U.S. legal tender gold coin made of 1 troy ounce of .9999 fine gold. The first coins were minted in 2006, and were the first 24K gold coins ever struck at the U.S. Mint.
These Random Date American Gold Buffalo coins carry a $50 denomination, which makes them U.S. currency. This means that the weight and purity of each coin is guaranteed by the full power of the United States government. The design is a revival of the 1913 "Buffalo Nickel" design of famous sculptor and coin designer James Earle Fraser, who studied under Augustus Saint-Gaudens.
The obverse of the coin features a composite image of three American Indians, with the year-date and the motto "Liberty". The reverse of the coin features the legend "United States Of America" over an American bison, with the $50 face value, and weight and purity of "1 oz .9999 Fine Gold" under the buffalo's hooves.
These "random date" Gold Buffalos measure 32.7mm in diameter and 2.87mm thick. They are an excellent way to diversify into 99.99% pure gold, from one of the most well-known and trusted mints in the world.
The date of each coin will be randomly determined from available inventory at the same of order fulfillment. Stock photo is for reference only.
