American Gold Buffalo coins are the popular pure Gold coin from the US Mint. The United States Mint produced its very first 1 oz. .9999 fine Gold Buffalo coin in 2006. The Gold Buffalo is designed after the famous 1913 Buffalo Nickel, originally designed by James Earle Fraser. The obverse of the coin displays the Indian Head design that is actually a compilation of three famous Native American Chiefs. The Gold American Buffalo has become a favorite amongst bullion investors that prefer the extra “9” (.9999 versus .999) in gold.
The American Gold Buffalo coin is also approved for precious metals IRAs. The Gold Buffalo provides a .9999 fine option for your IRA retirement account.
