This classic American Buffalo gold coin is made of one ounce of .9999 fine 24-karat gold. It is an investment-grade coin with weight, content and purity guaranteed by the United States government.
The 1 oz Buffalo Gold Coin is legal tender and has a face value of $50, but this amount is far less than the coin’s actual value in gold. This Buffalo gold coin was minted at the United States Mint at West Point, New York, but does not have a mint mark.
The obverse side of the gold coin features sculptor James Earle Fraser’s portrait of a native American, similar to that of the first Buffalo Nickel in 1913.
