American Buffalo Gold Bullion Coins
The American Buffalo One Ounce Gold Coin is based on the highly popular Type I Buffalo Nickel (or Indian Head Nickle) designed by James Earle Fraser, a student of the legendary sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens. This timeless design remained in use for 26 years (1913 through 1938) and then was not seen again until 62 years later with the Single Year Release of the 2001 Silver American Buffalo Commemorative Coin.
In 2006, the United States Mint reintroduced the design by striking the United States Mints' very first 24-karat gold coin. These coins were produced at the US Mints' West Point facility. Each coin contains one ounce of .9999 fine, 24-karat gold.
This coin is available from Precious Metals Investment Group of Texas (PMIG) in the following size:
A 1 oz. American Gold Buffalo is 32.70 mm in diameter and 2.95 mm thick.
