Buying Certified Gold Buffalos
American Gold Buffalo bullion coins in certified Mint State grades are an excellent way for investors and collectors to diversify and add value to their portfolios and collections with virtually perfect gold coins from the U.S. Mint. They combine all of the investment power of gold bullion with the collector prestige of ultra-high-grade Mint State certified coins.
Along with American Gold Eagles, they are the only modern gold bullion coins backed by the U.S. government for weight and gold content. First produced in 2006, American Gold buffalos are the only 24-karat gold coins made by the U.S. Mint. Each coin contains a full troy ounce of pure gold.
Classic buffalo nickel design
The American Buffalo gold coin is modeled on the beloved buffalo nickel, first issued in 1913 and still one of America's most popular coins. Although substantially larger in size and weight, it features the same original designs created by noted American sculptor James Earle Fraser. The obverse depicts the classic profile of a Native American chief; the reverse displays the revered image of the American bison.
Certified Gold Buffao bullion coins are eligible for IRAs (see below).
Benefits of certified Gold Buffalo coins
Virtual perfection-- Mint State 70 is the highest Mint State grade, and "Early Releases" are among the first coins struck on new, polished dies. They combine all of the investment power of gold bullion with the collector prestige of select, super-high-grade MS70 coins. Certified by NGC, one of the two most-trusted grading services in the industry.
Gold content guaranteed by the U.S.-- American buffalos are the only 24-karat bullion gold coins guaranteed as to weight and gold content by the U.S. government.
Minted in 24-karat gold-- Unlike American Eagle gold coins, which are minted in 91.67% pure gold alloyed with a small amount of silver and copper, American buffalos are minted in 24-karat, 99.99% pure gold with a weight of one ounce.
Private and non-reportable-- Unlike most gold bullion, American Gold buffalos are non-reportable the IRS by brokers. Other modern-issue gold bullion coins like Canadian Gold Maple Leafs, and South African Gold Krugerrands are reportable to the IRS when you sell them to gold dealers in increments of 25 ounces or more. American Eagles are exempt from this reporting requirement.
Eligible for Individual Retirement Accounts-- Unlike other gold bullion coins, U.S. Gold Buffalo coins are eligible to fund IRAs. In order to include Gold Eagles in your IRA portfolio you must have an independent custodian to hold your gold. American Gold Exchange works closely with several suitable IRA custodians.
