When it comes to 24-karat gold coins, the United States Mint issues only one such coin on an annual basis. The American Buffalo Gold Coin has been available annually as of 2006, but it comes with much higher premiums than replica versions of the coin. The American Buffalo Gold Tribute Coin is the best way to get this beautiful design with gold visuals at an affordable price. Today is your chance to collect this beautiful design on the new American Buffalo Gold Tribute Coin available online at Provident Metals.


  • Arrives with a protective acrylic capsule and a small, round display stand!
  • Offered with a Certificate of Authenticity!
  • Stunning replica tribute coins!
  • Features a 24-karat gold-clad layer!
  • The obverse depicts a tribal figure in right-profile relief.
  • On the reverse is an American bison.

American Buffalo Gold Coins were introduced in 2006 by the US Mint. The coins were the first-ever 24-karat gold coins from the US Mint and remain in production annually in Brilliant Uncirculated and Proof versions. The coin features one of Americas greatest historic coin designs and it is widely replicated on other pieces.


The obverse side of American Buffalo Gold Tribute Coins depicts the indigenous tribal figure. In this design, James Earle Fraser created the effigy of a tribal leader in right-profile relief. The tribute coins include inscriptions of Liberty, 2021, and an F initial for James Earle Fraser.


On the reverse field of the American Buffalo Gold Tribute Coin is an effigy of the American bison. The American bison is the largest land mammal in North America and is found in left-profile relief on this side of the tribute coin. The image featured here includes a powerful American bison, the species found across the plains of North America and certain regions of Canada. The inscriptions on this face read United States of America, E Pluribus Unum, In God We Trust, $50, and 1 oz. .9999 Fine Gold. Most importantly, as a tribute coin, you will find the inscription of COPY.


The American Buffalo Gold Tribute Coin features the iconic designs introduced by the United States Mint back in 1913 when the US nickel received a design makeover. James Earle Fraser developed the design and it was produced from 1913 to 1938. In 2006, the US Mint revived it on the American Buffalo Gold bullion coin. These American Buffalo Gold Tribute Coins replicate those same designs at a much more affordable price and are not legal tender coins.


American Buffalo Gold Tribute Coins are available here with protective plastic capsules and a small, round display stand for upright display of the coins. There is a Certificate of Authenticity included and these tribute coins have a clad layer of 24-karat gold.
