The American Gold Buffalo helped to get the United States back into the gold coin race; where Americans had only been able to buy 24-karat gold coins from abroad, this coin put America on the numismatic map.
The American Gold Buffalo helped to put the United States back into the gold coin race.
The Gold Buffalo was the first time that the United States decided to mint a 24-karat (.9999) gold coin for the public. This allowed collectors who were fond of the 24-karat gold coin to purchase something other than the Canadian Maple Leaf, Australian Kangaroo, or Austrian Philharmonic gold coins.
The iconic images used for the coin have always struck a chord with the hearts of collectors.The American Gold Buffalo utilizes the familiar design found on the popular Indian Head nickel. Designed by James Earle Fraser, the Indian Head nickel has been considered one of the greatest designs in the history of American coins. With the use of the proud Native American on the obverse and the American Bison on the reverse, this design has been appreciated by collectors young and old alike for over 100 years.
Gold in the hand always feels better than two in the bank.
When the American Buffalo coin was first introduced to the public, gold prices hovered around $600.00 per ounce. By fall of 2011 that price had skyrocketed to $1900.00 an ounce. Over the last few years the price per ounce has come down but it appears that gold is on the upswing again. During uncertain economic times, people have always gravitated towards precious metals and this coin is a piece of American numismatic history that you can hold in your hand and help to protect your investments.
