Why purchase this $50 American 2020 1 oz Gold Buffalo?
The American Gold Eagle has been an extremely popular coin since its inception, but many collectors chose foreign options for its first two decades due to its .9167 fine purity. To compete with purer coins from other world mints, the US Mint introduced the Gold Buffalo in 2006. This piece is part of the fifteenth issue in that series. It was struck from 1 oz of .9999 fine gold.
Featuring James Earle Fraser's Classic Buffalo Design
Both faces of this coin get their designs from the famous Indian Head Nickel of James Earle Fraser. On the obverse is a composite portrait of an elderly Native American man. The right-side effigy shows him with braided hair, distinct facial features, and feathers tied up at the back of his head. The date, "2020," is inscribed on his shoulder, and "LIBERTY" is inscribed in front of his face. Under the date is an "F," the initial of the designer's last name.
The reverse features an American bison design. Fraser captured the creature's massive size by making full use of the available space. The national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," is inscribed under the animal's head, while the other statutory motto, "E PLURIBUS UNUM," is above its back. "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" arches over the image along the rim. Below the bison are inscriptions of the coin's face value, "$50," and its weight and purity, "1 OZ. .9999 FINE GOLD."
