$10 Gold Buffalo
American Buffalo $10 gold coins were struck during only one year at the West Point Mint in New York. The 2008-W American Buffalo gold coins contain a quarter ounce of pure gold and are widely sought by both diehard numismatists and bullion investors alike. 2008-W $25 Buffalo gold coins are relatively common. The West Point Mint struck 9,949 examples of the burnished variety and 13,125 proofs, and both issues remain readily available today.
It?s little wonder the $10 American Buffalo gold coins enjoy crossover appeal among both coin collectors and precious metals investors. These handsome bullion coins bear a revival of the popular ?Indian Head? or ?Buffalo? design that James Earle Fraser designed for the nickel series made from 1913 through 1938. While some modifications have been made to the overall motif, which depicts a Native American on the obverse and American bison on the reverse, the design is faithfully reminiscent of the Buffalo nickels that so many people grew up using and later collecting.
