The 24-karat "sister" gold
bullion coin to the 22-karat Gold Eagle from the U.S. Mint,
the American Buffalo Gold Bullion Coin, One Ounce,
duplicates the design found on the now-famous Fraser Nickel
from 1913 origin. The pure gold coins come from the U.S.
Mint in sheets of 20 coins, and distributors have become
quite skilled at cutting individual coin squares from these
sheets. Production levels of American Buffalo gold coins
have been somewhat sporadic since late 2008 when demand
spiked due to the Financial Panic; total production levels
from the Mint remain relatively low at this junction.
However, WCM is able to offer the American Buffalo Gold
Coin, One Ounce, at the same premium over spot as the
American Eagle gold coin, when most, if not all bullion
dealers charge a higher premium for this particular U.S.
Mint gold bullion coin.
