Full Description

The American Buffalo, better known as the Gold Buffalo, was put up on sale by the United States Mint on 22 June, 2006. The 24 karat bullion coin is based on the Indian Head Nickel design by James Earle Fraser and has derived its name from the American Bison which resides on the reverse side of this masterpiece. Its the first ever (.9999) 24 karat gold minted by the United States government for the local masses. The coin mintage was limited to 300,000 coins.

Graded by PCGS (Professional Coin Grading Service) as Proof 70, the highest grade possible, the coin also has the distinction of being labeled a First Strike: meaning the coin was graded within the first 30 days of the coin's release.

The Obverse

On the front of the coin, the striking profile of a Native American is shown. Originally minted on the Buffalo Nickel from 1913 until 1938, the design created by sculptor James Earle Fraser has become synonymous with the American West. The date, and inscription of "Liberty" both appear in their original locations, and even include the "F" near the date as an artists signature. 

The Reverse

The reverse of the coin shows the leftward facing profile of the American bison, or Buffalo. There were two varieties of the reverse image created during the original minting of the Buffalo Nickel; the first showed the buffalo on raised ground, and the second on a flat surface. Shown on the back of the 2009 Gold Buffalo is the first design. Inscriptions denoting the denomination, purity and weight are shown on the bottom of the majestic image.
