The 2022 American Buffalo 1-ounce gold proof coin was released May 12.

The coin features designs based on the original 1913 Type I Buffalo nickel designed by James Earle Fraser. It is the first 24-karat gold proof coin ever struck by the U.S. Mint and is the collector version of the official U.S. Mint American Buffalo gold bullion coin.

The obverse portrays James Earle Fraser’s profile representation of a Native American with the inscriptions “LIBERTY” and “2022.” The reverse features an American Buffalo, also known as a bison. Inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” “$50,” “1 OZ.” and “.9999 FINE GOLD.”

Quantities are limited for this popular coin. It is capped at 16,000, and there is no household order limit.

The coin comes encapsulated and placed in a black presentation case with the United States Mint seal on the lid.
