Prior to 2006, the United States Mint had never issued a gold coin with a level of purity beyond 22-karat, or .9167. In 2006, that all changed with the introduction of the American Buffalo 1 oz Gold Coin. The first-ever 24-karat gold coin from the US Mint, the American Buffalo Gold Coin remains the only annual-issue gold coin with .9999 pure gold content. Today, you have the chance to purchase the 2020 American Buffalo 1 oz Gold Coin from Provident Metals.


  • Arrives with a protective plastic flip or a tube of 20 coins!
  • 15th year of release for the American Buffalo 1 oz gold coin!
  • Contains 1 Troy oz of .9999 pure gold in BU condition.
  • An indigenous tribal figure in right-profile relief is on the obverse.
  • The American bison is depicted on the reverse of the coin.

Your 2020 American Buffalo 1 oz Gold Coin will arrive in individual protective plastic flips to preserve its original condition. For larger orders, coins will arrive in tubes of 20.


The obverse of 2020 American Buffalo 1 oz Gold Coins includes the right-profile portrait of an indigenous tribal figure. James Earle Fraser created this design in 1913 by combining the facial features of three real-life indigenous leaders of the era. Inscriptions read LIBERTY, 2020, and F.


For the reverse, 2020 American Buffalo 1 oz Gold Coins depict a large bison in left-profile relief standing on a mound of dirt. Fraser also created this image in 1913 and used Black Diamond, a resident bison of the Central Park Zoo in New York City, as the inspiration for his design. Inscriptions read UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM, IN GOD WE TRUST, $50, and 1 OZ .9999 FINE GOLD.


The US Mint introduced the American Buffalo 1 oz Gold Coin in 2006 with 24-karat gold. It was the first time a coin of this purity was produced. Other commemorative gold coins in 24-karat gold have since been issued, but the American Buffalo is the only coin issued every year with 24-karat gold.
