The American Gold Buffalo was first introduced in 2006 and is a 24-Karat pure gold bullion coin. The United States had never issued a 24 Karat gold coin prior to its release. The design is similar to the buffalo nickel issued between 1913-1938. The front of the coin has a side profile of a Native American Indian, the year it was issued as well as the word “Liberty “on the top right side. while the reverse has the American Bison pictured on a pile of grass. The coin is 1 ounce of 99.99% fine 24 karat gold. In 2008 only, the U.S. Mint issued the $5 (1/10 ounce), $10 (1/4 ounce), and the $25 (1/2 ounce). The coins are struck at the West Point mint in New York. The proof coin comes in a velvet box with a certificate of authenticity. The proof coin also has the “W” mint mark. The U.S. Mint has minted over 2.3 million of this coin.
