In 2006, the United States Mint introduced its first 24-karat gold coin: the Gold Buffalo. The Gold Buffalo coin is designed after the famous 1913 Type 1 Buffalo Nickel created by James Earle Fraser. The obverse shows the well-known Indian Head design, and the reverse features the classic buffalo design as well as inscriptions of the weight, denomination, and gold content.
The 2006, 2007, and 2008 Gold Buffalo coins were a huge success, providing competition for the Gold Maple Leafs. The 2009 and 2010 Gold Buffalo coins are .9999 fine and are only available in a 1 oz coin.
