Each 2012 1 oz American Gold Buffalo coin is composed of .9999 Fine Gold Bullion and will arrive in original US Mint plastic.

In 2006, the U.S. Mint began producing the country’s first 24-karat pure gold coin (.9999) accessible to the public. The 2012 American Gold Buffalo, now available through Provident Metals, contains one troy ounce of pure gold, has a diameter of 32.7mm and a face value of $50. Subject to a limited-release of 300,000 coins per year, the Gold Buffalo is highly sought-after by investors and collectors alike.

The 2012 Gold Buffalo’s beautiful design pays homage to one of the most cherished sculptors in American history. James Earle Fraser, a Minnesotan born in 1876, was exposed to the Western frontier and Native American culture from a very early age. With a passion for sculpture and training from Augustus Saint-Gaudens, Fraser began channeling his childhood memories into beautiful works of art, masterfully capturing the essence of the Old Wild West. One of Fraser’s most famous designs was the Indian Head (or Buffalo) Nickel, released between 1913 and 1938. Wildly popular, Fraser’s coin has been memorialized in the 2012 Gold Buffalo Coin, now available through Provident Metals.

On the obverse of each prolific Gold Buffalo is the proud image of a Native American, believed to be the amalgamation of three chiefs from differing tribes: Big Tree of the Kiowa, Iron Tail of the Lakota Sioux and Two Moons of the Cheyenne. On the reverse is the profile of Black Diamond, a 1,500-pound American bison (or buffalo) who lived at the Central Park Menagerie at the time of Fraser’s design. The buffalo is one of the most iconic, sentimental figures of American culture.
