    PLEASE NOTE – these are random year coins based on our inventory, and may come in the alternate box.

    The United States Mint was founded in 1792 by the Coinage Act of 1792 and began issuing the first US gold coins in 1794. For the next 210 years, the United States Mint would not issue a gold coin with greater purity than 22-karat gold. In 2006, the American Gold Buffalo Coin changed all of that with a ground-breaking coin. The 1 oz Proof American Gold Buffalo Coin is currently available to you for purchase online from JM Bullion.

    Coin Highlights:

    • Coins arrive inside of protective packaging!
    • 1st issued in 2006!
    • Random year listing!
    • Consists of One Troy ounce of .9999 pure gold.
    • Issued a face value of $50 (USD) by the United States.
    • On the obverse is a Native American figure.
    • The reverse depicts an American bison known as Black Diamond.
    • “W” mint marks on the obverse.
    • Please note you may receive several of the same date when purchasing multiples.

    American Gold Buffalo coins contain 1 Troy oz of .9999, or 24-karat, pure gold. When the Gold Buffalo was introduced in 2006 it became the purest gold coin ever issued by the United States Mint. The Proof American Gold Buffalo, like its bullion counterpart, is traditionally only available in the 1 oz weight.

    The 2008 release of the Proof American Gold Buffalo Coin included a total of four weights with 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz coins joining the 1 oz option. This was the only year in which these weights were available though. The highest mintage in the history of the Proof Gold Buffalo came in the debut 2006 issue with 246,267 coins struck. The lowest mintage figure to date was 16,591 coins in 2015.

    On the obverse of all Proof American Gold Buffalo Coins is the image of a Native American tribal figure. This right-profile portrait was created in 1913 by James Earle Fraser for use on the Buffalo Nickel and was designed with the influence of facial features from three real-life native leaders of the early 20th century.

    The reverse of 1 oz Proof American Gold Buffalo Coins features the image of an American bison. A critical animal to the culture of tribes from the American Plains, the buffalo is the largest land mammal in North America. This design is based upon Black Diamond, a resident bison at the Central Park Zoo in New York City in the early 20th century.

    In this JM Bullion listing, you can purchase 1 oz Proof American Gold Buffalo Coins from a random lot. Our warehouse teams selects your coins once your payment is processed and we cannot guarantee the date mark on the coin you receive. If you purchase more than one coin, please be aware that you could receive multiples of the same date mark.

    We encourage JM Bullion customers to call us at 800-276-6508 with questions. You can also connect with us online through our live chat and email address features.

    The majority of orders ship out within one (1) business day of cleared payment. From there, delivery time will vary depending on your selected shipping method. If your order ships via the United States Postal Service, it will usually be delivered within 2-5 business days, depending on your location relevant to our fulfillment center in Las Vegas, Nevada. We cannot guarantee delivery dates, unfortunately, because that is, ultimately, dependent on the mail carrier. Below are the common time frames for most orders most of the time, broken down by payment method:

Credit/debit card payments clear immediately, and most of these orders ship within 1 business day of cleared payment. Depending on shipping method, credit/debit card orders should be delivered within 1-5 business days of shipment.

    PayPal: Most PayPal orders are marked Paid almost instantly upon order placement and clear immediately upon being marked Paid. Most PayPal orders ship within 1 business day of cleared payment. Depending on shipping method, PayPal orders should be delivered within 1-5 business days of shipment.

    Will I need to sign for my package?+

    Orders under $1000 will not require a signature unless that option is selected and paid for at checkout. Orders over $1000 will always require a signature for delivery.

    What happens if my order is lost or damaged in transit?+

    In the unlikely event your order is lost in transit, please contact us immediately so we can begin the claims process. If your items are not recovered, you will be entitled to a full reimbursement of the losses in accordance with the specific shippers insurance policy. As stated in our Terms and Conditions, we must be contacted within the first two (2) days of delivery concerning any damaged packages.

    Do you ship internationally?+

    We only ship to U.S. addresses (including P.O. Boxes and APO addresses).

    Do I have to ship my order to my billing address?+

    Depending on your method of payment, it is possible to have your order shipped to an address other than your billing address. If you pay with paper check, bank wire, ACH, or bitcoin, you may have your order shipped wherever you please, with two exceptionsUPS locations and mail forwarding locations. If you pay with a credit/debit card, it depends on your order history. If you pay via PayPal, your order must ship to a PayPal Verified address.

    How will I know when my order ships?+

    We will notify you by email once your order ships. You can also check the current status by logging in to your account or using ourTrack An Orderpage.

    How do I choose my shipping method?+

    You may choose how your order is shipped during the checkout process. In the last section of the checkout page, 4 Shipping Method, you will see the available shipping options for your order. If your purchase is eligible for free shipping, the pre-selected option will be base shipping, which is either USPS or UPS at our choice. If you would like to upgrade your shipping, you may choose one of the other options for a small fee. Simply click on the circle next to the shipping method you desire, and your order will be shipped via that method.

    If my order includes an item on presale, will the in-stock items ship first?+

    Unfortunately, due to the way insurance is applied to an order, everything must ship at the same time (i.e., in-stock items must await shipment until all presale items have arrived). Your order will ship in its entirety within 24-72 hours of our receiving the presale item. An email notification will be sent when your order ships.

    How do I ship my buyback order to you?+

    We utilize UPS for all buyback shipments. All parcels must be either picked up by UPS or delivered to a UPS Customer Center. The UPS Store is not the same as a UPS Customer Center. We cannot guarantee liability if the parcel is dropped off at a UPS Store, UPS Access Point, UPS Drop Box, or UPS Authorized Service Providers.

    Alternatively, you can ship your order on your own. If you choose to do so, we strongly recommend sending your items via USPS Registered Mail (Signature Required) and purchase insurance to cover the full amount of your items. Please be advised that it may be faster and more cost-effective to ship your order using our prepaid UPS label than sending your items via USPS Registered Mail (Signature Requied).

    Safe Shipping and Packaging Checklist

    • Secure merchandise in smaller box
      • Use additional packaging materials such as padded envelopes, bubble wrap, paper, foam pad, making sure movement of merchandise is restricted. Shake the package to be sure there is no rattle.
    • Mark tracking information
      • Mark tracking number, shipper, and recipient information outside the smaller box. Its needed in case the shipping information on the outside box gets damaged and becomes illegible during transit.
    • Double box your shipments
      • Place the small box inside a larger courier box. Make sure movement is restricted with additional cushioning and double boxing dramatically increases the strength and integrity of the parcel.
    • Proper enclosure
      • Please seal all seams or flaps on the outside of the box with clear tape in addition to adhesive on flap. This is an important step to avoid any tampering.
    • Proper labeling
      • Beware of wording which might express reference to valuable goods. Obvious words that directly relate to valuables are strictly prohibited. Abbreviate names, i.e. turn Robs coin Shop to Robs Shop.
    • Important Considerations
      • Act as if all packages are not insured
      • Include a packing slip and note a trade # and/or account name so this parcel can be verified properly
      • Never reveal the contents of your shipment, even to the courier
      • Never state a value or reference to valuables anywhere on the box or label
      • Do not ship a package with a value in excess of $60,000 per box. We have provided an adequate number of label(s) to accommodate your shipment.
    Do you ship to US territories?+

    We do not ship to US territories. Due to special requirements set by the postal systems, we are unable to ship outside of U.S. states.

    What does “No Will Call” mean?+

    All UPS shipments ship with a No Will Call restriction, meaning the package cannot be picked up from a UPS location or just left at the delivery address. This is a precaution to prevent orders from being fraudulently intercepted.

    UPS will make three delivery attempts. If nobody is available at the delivery address to sign and accept delivery, the package will be returned to us.

    Where do you ship orders from?+

    All orders will ship from our warehouse in Las Vegas, Nevada. We mask our return address on all packages as to not give away the contents of the package.

    Do you ship to PO Boxes?+

    Yes, we do! All orders shipping to a PO Box will ship via USPS.

    Do you offer UPS shipping to Alaska and Hawaii?+

    No, we do not. The costs in shipping to these places is extremely prohibitive, so we utilize USPS on all shipments.

    How do you ship orders?+

    Orders are shipped in inconspicuous packaging via either USPS or UPS.* All shipments are fully insured. Our shipping policy, which is based on order size, can be viewed here.

    *UPS 3-Day Air excludes Alaska, Hawaii, PO Boxes, and APO addresses. No Will Call pickups permitted.Saturday service not included.
