This .9999 American Buffalo gold coin contains a full troy ounce of gold, although the coin itself weighs a bit more due to the other metals it contains. First issued in 2006, it marked the United States’ second attempt at a standard gold bullion coin. This coin was issued in response to the .9999 bullion coins issued by other countries. The obverse (front) is a rendition of a Native American from the famous Type I Buffalo Nickel, designed by James Earle Fraser. The reverse features a rendition of buffalo from the same coin.

The Gold American Buffalo coin is on the CUSIP list. This coin is made with US-produced gold. Available in bullion, uncirculated, and proof editions, it is also available in ½ ounce, ¼ ounce, and 1/10 ounce varieties, but only from 2008. A one-ounce coin carries a face value of $50, although the metal content is worth much more.

BONUS FACT – The American Buffalo coin was also available in silver in a one dollar denomination, but only in 2001.
