Mixed year VAT exempt American one ounce gold coins at our best price.

First US 24 Carat Coin

The Gold Buffalo was the first 99.99% gold coin offered by the United States Mint. First struck in 2006, these bullion coins are purer than the 22 carat American Eagle and comparable in gold content to the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf or British Gold Britannia.

A limited number of Buffalos are struck each year with a small number of proof pieces also minted (distinguished by a 'W' mint mark). Fractional sizes are available but the one ounce variety remains the most popular, offering 31.108 grams of 24 carat gold: the equivalent of 1.0001 troy ounces.

Gold Buffalos measure 32.7 millimetres across and have a face value of $50. Their gold content gives them a value significantly above this and means they are VAT exempt in the UK and EU. They're a great means of diversifying your portfolio.

James Earle Fraser

The distinctive design of the Gold Buffalo originally appeared on the Indian Head Nickel, issued between 1913 and 1938. Its the work of American sculptor James Earle Fraser, known for his public monuments in Washington DC.

Adapted for the Buffalo, the obverse shows the profile of a Native American man with a traditional hairstyle and feathers. The legend reads 'LIBERTY' and the date appears on the neck of the portrait with an 'F' for Fraser below.

The reverse gives these coins their name and shows an American bison, reportedly modelled on a beast called Black Diamond, held in a New York zoo. The denomination, weight and purity appear on the ground below the buffalo with 'UNITED·STATES·OF·AMERICA' across his back.

Our Best Value Range

We have strict standards for our best value bullion coins. Each piece is meticulously checked by our experts to ensure that the weight and and composition is exactly as advertised.

You may find that your one ounce American Buffalos show some bag marks, small scratches, knicks or blemishes. This is typical of a pre-owned, circulated coin and will not effect the gold weight.

You'll receive our choice of year when you opt for our best value range, picked from our available stock. If you order multiple Gold Buffalos your package could include a range of dates.

If you're looking for a particular year then please do contact us: we may well have what you're after and, if not, we can source your item for you.


We are always proud to show off our previous customers experiences with you and what they thought of our purchasing through with Britannia Coins.
