American Gold Buffalo coins were introduced by the United States Mint in 2006 and marked a momentous occasion. For the first time in the history of the mint, an American coin was struck using .9999 pure gold. No previous circulation gold coin had ever been issued with 24-karat gold. Though other 24-karat gold coins have since been issued by the US Mint, the Gold Buffalo is the only one produced each year in a bullion option.
On the obverse of 2020 1 oz American Gold Buffalo is the right-profile portrait of an indigenous tribal figure. This design was created in 1913 by James Earle Fraser for use on the Buffalo Nickel. This figure has braided hair with a feather woven into it and simple inscriptions that include only the word Liberty and the year of issue for the coin.
The reverse of 2020 American Gold Buffalo Coins includes the image of an American bison. The largest land mammal on the North American continent, bison were critical to the survival of indigenous tribes from the central plains to the American West. This particular design was inspired by Black Diamond, a resident bison of the Central Park Zoo in New York City in the early 20th century.
All American Gold Buffalo Coins are produced by the United States Mint at the West Point Mint facility and reflect the historic designs from the Buffalo Nickel, a circulation five-cent piece produced from 1913 to 1938.
