This 2012 U.S. Mint Proof Gold Buffalo contains 1 whole ounce of pure gold. The Gold Buffalo is the only U.S. Mint gold coin to have a fineness of .9999, meaning that this coin is of exceptional purity or 24 karats. This Gold Buffalo, is of the proof variety; which indicates these coins are struck using specially prepared dies to enhance detail and luster.
For years, the only gold bullion coin produced by the U.S. Mint was the American Gold Eagle, which has a purity of 91.67%. Meanwhile, other national mints such as the Royal Canadian Mint were releasing gold bullion coins with purities of 99.9% or 99.99%. The Gold Buffalo was released in 2006, finally giving the U.S. Mint an exceptionally pure gold bullion coin.
U.S. Mint Gold Buffaloes borrow their distinctive design from James Earle Fraser's well-known Buffalo Nickel, released in 1913. The obverse features the famous "Indian Head" that adorned the original 5 cent coin with an inscription reading "LIBERTY," as well as the West Point mintmark and date. The reverse depicts an American Bison surrounded by inscriptions bearing the denomination ($50), weight, fineness, and the name and motto of the United States.
This 2012 Proof Gold Buffalo comes with an original display box from the U.S. Mint and certificate of authenticity. Proof coins such as this should appeal to those searching for a collectible of excellent quality and high intrinsic value.
