Introducing the American Gold Buffalo coin, unveiled in 2006 and proudly holding the title of the purest annual release gold coin from the United States Mint.

Don’t miss the chance to own the 2018 American Buffalo 1 oz Gold Coins, available through Provident Metals.

These 2018 American Buffalo 1 oz Gold Coin, listed in BU condition, maintain their pristine appearance. While they exhibit no signs of wear, minimal imperfections like breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, or slight contact marks might be present due to the coining process. Coins arrive in individual protective plastic flips. For larger orders, tubes of 20 are also available.


Adorning the obverse of the 2018 American Buffalo Gold Coin is the right-profile portrait of the tribal leader. Fraser reportedly merged facial features from three distinct American Indian leaders. Inscriptions include 2018, F, and LIBERTY.


The reverse of each 2018 Buffalo 1 oz Gold Coin displays the left-side image of a bison, standing on a mound of dirt and grass. The bison’s roots can be traced back to Black Diamond, a famed resident bison of the Central Park Zoo. Inscriptions read UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, IN GOD WE TRUST, E PLURIBUS UNUM, $50, and 1 OZ .9999 FINE GOLD.


Honoring the golden era of American coining in the early 20th century, the American Buffalo Gold Coin draws inspiration from former circulation coin designs, echoing the prestigious American Eagle Series. James Earle Frasers Buffalo Nickel design beautifully captures the essence of the plains and prairies of the Upper Midwest.

The Buffalo Nickel coins portrayed a portrait of an American Indian leader on one side and the majestic image of an American bison on the other. Frasers Buffalo Nickel, authorized during President William Howard Tafts administration, circulated from 1913 to 1938.
