WASHINGTON – The United States Mint will open sales for the 2013 American Buffalo Gold Proof Coin on May 23, at noon Eastern Time (ET).  Pricing for the .9999 fine, 24-karat gold coin will be based on the bureau’s pricing policy for numismatic products containing precious metals located at http://catalog.usmint.gov/wcsstore/ConsumerDirect/images/catalog/en_US/PMPricingGrid.pdf

The designs featured on the obverse (heads side) and reverse (tails side) of the American Buffalo Gold Proof Coin are based on James Earle Fraser’s original 1913 Type I Buffalo nickel.  The obverse depicts the profile of a Native American, with the inscriptions LIBERTY, 2013, the initial “F” for Fraser, and the “W” mint mark for the United States Mint at West Point.  The reverse depicts the revered American Buffalo – also known as the bison – with the inscriptions UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM, IN GOD WE TRUST, $50, 1OZ., and .9999 FINE GOLD.

Each American Buffalo Gold Proof Coin is presented in an elegant hardwood box with a matte finish.  The coin is exhibited on a platform that can be positioned at an angle for display when the box is open.  A Certificate of Authenticity is included.
