Gold Buffalo 1 oz. U.S. $50 Coin
The Gold Buffalo was first minted in 2006 as the U.S. Mint’s first ever 24kt .9999 Fine 1 oz Gold Coin. Every year the U.S. Mint makes a 1 oz. Buffalo with a $50 face value in two different strike types: Proof & Uncirculated. In 2008 the U.S. Mint released fractional sizes of the Buffalo in 1/2 oz. with a $25 face value, 1/4 oz. with a $10 face value, and 1/10 oz. with a $5 face value in both Proof and Uncirculated Strikes. These fractional pieces were only made in 2008 for collectors and are considered rare as their value is worth well over their metal content, which is why when investing in gold, our customers opt for the Uncirculated Gold Buffalo.
