The American Gold Buffalo Coins introduction in 2006 was a monumental occasion for the United States Mint. Since its founding in 1792, the purest gold coin ever released by the US Mint was 22-karat gold, or .9167 content. The American Gold Buffalo coins were the first-ever 24-karat, .9999 pure gold, coins in American history. Right now, 1 oz Proof American Gold Buffalo Coins are available to purchase from random years through Wall Street Metals.
