The U.S. Mint's Gold Buffalo coin has been a boon for precious metal investors with an eye for exceptional quality since it was introduced more than a decade ago.
It was the first "extra-pure" .9999 fine gold coin ever issued by the mint, and remains the only gold coin of this purity that the mint strikes on an annual basis.
In addition, each Gold Buffalo contains 1 troy ounce of pure gold content.
This particular 2019 American Gold Buffalo has been certified by NGC with the grade MS69. It also received the Early Release designation, meaning it was graded within the first month of issuance by the U.S. Mint.
Each 1 oz American Gold Buffalo is also United States legal tender with a face value of $50.
Both the obverse and reverse designs use enlarged versions of James E. Fraser's classic design for the Buffalo nickel, which debuted in 1913.
A right-facing portrait of a Native American chief with braided hair appears on the obverse along with the year-date and the inscription "LIBERTY."
The imposing profile of an American bison (buffalo) facing left graces the reverse. The denomination "$50" and specifications "1 OZ,. .9999 FINE GOLD" are inscribed below.
