American Gold Buffalo Bullion Coins:
The American Buffalo, also known as a Gold Buffalo Coin, is a 24-karat gold bullion coin first offered for sale by the United States Mint on June 22, 2006. This was the first time ever that the United States Government has minted pure (.9999) 24-karat gold coins for the public. The coin has a legal tender (face) value of US$50. On the American Buffalo coin, the mound area of the reverse with the words FIVE CENTS has been changed to read $50 1 OZ. .9999 FINE GOLD. Also, the motto IN GOD WE TRUST, appearing on all U.S. gold coins since 1908, can be seen on the reverse to the left of and beneath the buffalo head.
Fractional sizes: In 2008 the US Mint indicated an expansion of the program, to include Buffalo gold coins in fractional sizes. These fractional size coins ($5, $10 & $25) Burnished Mint State Buffalo coins are beautiful additions to any collection and are listed elsewhere in my Buffalo coin collection sets.
The 1 ounce $50 Gold Buffalo Coin was released and became an instant classic. The tradition continues and these Gold Buffalo coins are an excellent way to invest in 24-karat gold with content and purity guaranteed by the United States Government!
