The Proof Gold American Buffalo is considered by many to be the most beautiful coin in the U.S. Mint’s proof series. What makes proof coins so beautiful is that they are struck on specially prepared planchets, receiving multiple strikes from the die, thus providing each coin with a unique, mirror-like finish. The dies themselves are highly polished to eliminate any imperfection in the casting process to ensure each coin retains a perfect, mirror-like appearance. The coin's device appears to float over a field of liquid gold.
Each Proof Gold American Buffalo coin is struck in 24-karat (.9999 fine) gold, making them 99.99% pure gold and one of the finest Proof Gold coins on the market. Each Proof Gold American Buffalo comes packaged in the original U.S. Mint packaging, complete with Certificate of Authenticity.
The obverse of the Proof Gold American Buffalo features the profile of a Native American man, while the reverse side features the silhouette of an American bison standing in profile, modeled after "Black Diamond," a popular attraction in the New York Zoological Gardens in the early part of the 20th century. The images were originally featured on the popular "Indian Head" or "Buffalo" nickel, minted in the U.S. from 1913 to 1938 and were created by the American sculptor James Earle Fraser, a student of well-known sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens -- designer of the $20 gold Double Eagle minted from 1907 to 1933.
While the spot price of silver fluctuates, the popularity and collectability of Proof Gold American Buffalo coins has continued to rise.
