History of the Gold American Buffalo
The Gold American Buffalo coin owes its existence to the Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005. The U.S. Mint began producing the coins in 2006, marking the first time the Mint ever created a 24 karat gold coin (.9999 fine).
Each year, the U.S. Mint produces circulating bullion versions of the coin, plus a limited number of "Proof" coins, known for their mirror-like finish and exceptional quality. A small number of these proof coins achieves a perfect score of Proof 70 from one of the main grading services (NGC).
In 2008 only, the U.S. Mint produced 4 sizes, including a $50 face value one-ounce coin, $25 one-half ounce coin, $10 one-quarter ounce coin and the $5 one-tenth ounce coin.
