Burnished Gold Buffalos

Burnished Gold Buffalos

Gold Buffalos are a perennially popular gold bullion coin first produced in 2006. To appeal to both investors and collectors, the U.S. Mint has issued a limited run of burnished coins in the Buffalo’s production. Notable for both their good looks and limited availability, Burnished Gold Buffalos offer investment potential as well as aesthetic appeal.

Background

The Gold Buffalo was created partly to fill the need for a 24-karat, 0.9999% fine U.S. gold coin. It has a face value of $50 and is made from 1 oz. of gold.

However, in 2008 only, the U.S. Mint issued three fractional denominations: $5, $10, and $25 in proof and burnished strikes. All versions feature James Earle Fraser's Buffalo Nickel design, which was first used between 1913 and 1938. The most notable change involves the addition of the motto "In God We Trust," which is now required for all U.S. coinage.

Burnished Gold Buffalos

For most years of the Gold Buffalo coin program, only business strike and proof versions were issued. However, in 2008 the U.S. Mint released a short run of Burnished Gold Buffalos. Burnished coins employ a similar production process as proof coins, using a special die that creates sharper strikes and crisper details. However, burnished coins omit the final polishing step and, as a result, lack the mirror finish typically associated with proofs.

In 2008, the U.S. Mint produced Burnished Gold Buffalos at their West Point facility, in all four denominations.
