Behold the 1 oz Proof American Gold Buffalo Coin, a timeless treasure minted by the United States Mint in 1792 under the Coinage Act.

Now, this exceptional coin is available for purchase online at Provident Metals.

At Provident Metals, acquire 1 oz Proof American Gold Buffalo Coins from a random selection. Kindly note that while our warehouse team handpicks your coins post-payment, we cannot guarantee the specific date mark on the coin you’ll receive. Should you purchase multiple coins, duplicates in date marks are possible.


The obverse of all Proof American Gold Buffalo Coins features a profile of a Native American tribal figure, designed in 1913 by James Earle Fraser. This right-profile portrait amalgamates features from three real-life native leaders of the early 20th century, echoing the design of the Buffalo Nickel.


The reverse of the 1 oz Proof American Gold Buffalo Coin showcases the magnificent American bison. Symbolic of American Plains tribes, the buffalo holds the status of the largest land mammal in North America. This design takes inspiration from Black Diamond, a renowned bison from the early 20th century at the Central Park Zoo in New York City.


In 2008, the release of the Proof American Gold Buffalo Coin introduced four weights: 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz, alongside the 1 oz option. However, this diversity was unique to that year alone. The inaugural 2006 issue saw the highest mintage of 246,267 coins, while the lowest was 16,591 coins in 2015.
