Why order this Gold 1 oz. 2013 Buffalo

This 1 oz. Gold 2013 Buffalo was struck from .9999 fine, or 24 karat, gold at the West Point Mint, though it does not have the "W" Mint mark. Fewer than 200,000 Gold Buffaloes were minted in 2013, with 1 oz. being the only weight available.

Distinctly American James Earle Fraser Designs

The designs of the Gold Buffalo were taken from James Earle Fraser's Buffalo nickel, which he designed with the intent of making a coin that was immediately recognizable as American. Toward that end, he used a composite portrait of a Native American man on the obverse. He has distinct facial features and feathers that adorn the back of his head.

On the reverse is an image of an American bison, an animal native to the American plains. Fraser captured the size of the creature by making full use of the space on this face of the coin. Inscriptions on this face include the coin's face value and information about its gold content.

Perfect Mint State 70 Early Releases

Upon careful examination, graders at the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) determined that this coin lacked any flaws that are visible under 5x magnification. Accordingly, they gave the piece a perfect grade of Mint State 70. Because they received the coin within a month of its initial release from the Mint, they also certified it as an Early Release.
