Investing in Gold Buffalo Coins
The gold Buffalo coin is a unique coin to the range available from the United States Mint. The Buffalo is only available in gold, and it is also only available as a one ounce coin. There are a number of different silver Buffalo rounds available in the market, however these are manufactured by private mints, and are not backed by the US Mint or US government. For this reason, they do not have any legal tender value, and are referred to as rounds instead of coins.
The Buffalo gold coin is also unique in that it is the only 9999 fine gold bullion coin manufactured by the United States Mint.
Design of the Gold Buffalo Coin
The design of the gold Buffalo coin remains the same each year. The front of the coin features an image of an Indian Chief, with the word 'Liberty' written at the top. This design is taken from the original American 'Indian Head' nickel, which was in circulation in the first half of the 20th century. The reverse of each coin features an image of an American Bison, or Buffalo, grazing. The words 'United States of America' and 'E Pluribus Unum' are inscribed at the top of the coin. The bottom features the words 'In God We Trust', the coin's size, fineness and face value. Each 1 Ounce gold Buffalo coin has a face value of $50 USD.
