The American Gold Buffalo is a 24-karat gold bullion coin minted by the United States Mint. It’s first release was in 2006, brought about by the Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005, that mandated the issuance of a $50 bullion coin featuring the American Bison design on the 1913 Buffalo nickel.
The American Gold Buffalo is currently only minted in the 1 oz size. For one year only, 2008, the mint released Gold Buffalos in 1/10, 1/4, and 1/2 oz variations.
