Non-Certified Gold American Buffalo Coins
Gold American Buffalo bullion coins are the first .9999 fine 24kt gold coins ever made by the US Mint. The $50 face value gold coins (which measure 32.7mm diameter) are legal tender and are guaranteed in weight (31.108 grams), content (1 troy ounce of pure gold) and purity (99.99% pure) by the US government. In 2008, the US Mint also made the Gold American Buffalo coins available in half-ounce ($25 face value), quarter-ounce ($10 face value) and tenth-ounce ($5 face value) pieces in Proof and Uncirculated. Gold American Buffalo coins offer a simple and tangible means for investors to own 24-karat gold. Non-Certified Gold Eagles (also known as raw) have not been graded or certified by a third-party, but are otherwise the same as Certified Gold American Buffalos.
