    The American Gold Buffalo was the first coin from the United States Mint to ever feature a gold purity of .9999 fineness. United States Mint coins struck from 1837 to 1986 featured a maximum purity of .900. The American Gold Eagle’s 22-karat gold content changed that in 1986, and the American Gold Buffalo changed it all again in 2006. The 2016 1 oz Proof American Gold Buffalo is available now in a commorative box with a Certificate of Authenticity courtesy of JM Bullion.

    Coin Highlights:

    • 10th annual release of the American Gold Buffalo coin!
    • Coins in this listing ship with a Certificate of Authenticity.
    • Ships to you in a commemorative box for a beautiful display.
    • Contains 1 troy oz of .9999 pure gold, featuring a proof finish.
    • Issued a face value of $50 (USD) by the United States government.
    • Obverse features James Earle Fraser’s Indian design from the Buffalo Nickel.
    • Reverse bears the image of Black Diamond, the bison that inspired the Buffalo Nickel.

    Fraser’s famous Buffalo Nickel, which was in circulation from 1913 to 1938, was inspired by his life growing up on the plains of the Upper Midwest. A native of Winona, Minnesota, Fraser saw what life on the plains was like first hand traveling across the region with his father as a young man.

    The American Gold Buffalo coin debuted from the United States Mint in 2006. It was originally available in bullion and proof, with just a 1 oz. weight. In 2008, the US Mint experimented with an expansion of the proof program that included fractional weight coins, but has not returned to that since.

    On the obverse of the 2016 1 oz Proof American Gold Buffalo you’ll find the image of a Native American chieftain, captured in right-profile relief and featuring the same engraving of “Liberty” found on the original Buffalo Nickels.

    The reverse of the coin features a depiction of Black Diamond, the animal that inspired Fraser’s buffalo design. Black Diamond was a resident bison at the Central Park Zoo in New York City during the early 20th century.

    All American Gold Buffalo coins are struck by the United States Mint at its West Point Mint facility in New York. Only these Proof American Gold Buffalo specimens carry a “W” mint mark to identify the mint as the producer.

    If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. A JM Bullion associate is available at 800-276-5608, online using our live chat, or via our email address.

Should anything happen while your package is in transit to you, it will be covered by our insurance policy subject to the conditions set forth in this Section 13 of our Terms and Conditions. Please read this section of the Terms and Conditions carefully.

    If we determine the package is lost or damaged, we file a claim. We reserve the right to re-ship your items or refund your money at our discretion.

    My package appears to have been damaged or tampered with. What should I do?+

    We recommend you refuse any shipment that appears to be damaged or tampered with as the shipping insurance ends once signed for and/or delivered. When refused, the package(s) will return to JM Bullion for inspection. If you have taken possession of a damaged or tampered package, please save all packaging and contact JM Bullion at1-800-276-6508 within 48 hours for further instructions. Failure to notify us of damage or tampering within 48 hours fromsignatureor delivery date may impact our ability to cover your claim.

    When will I receive my order?+

    When you will receive your order depends primarily on three factors

    1. When we receive your payment (checks and wires must be initiated/sent by you).
      • Please note that you will receive a Paid email once your payment is received.
    2. Holding period after cleared payment.
      • Depending on your payment method, we will hold the order once payment is received and cleared. The hold periods by payment method are listed in checkout and in your confirmation email. Paper checks take the longest and are held up to five business days after payment clears.
    3. Shipping method and transit time.
      • UPS 3-Day Air is the fastest and most reliable method of shipping. These are usually delivered in 1-3 business days once in transit.
      • USPS is less consistent in both transit time and tracking accuracy.
    What happens if my order is lost in transit?+

    All packages shipped by JM Bullion are covered by insurance subject to certain conditions. In the unlikely event that your order is Lost in Transit, you need to contact us immediately. Lost in Transit is defined for the USPS as tracking not having updated in 5 or more calendar days. For UPS, it is 3 calendar days. You must contact us within 7 days since last tracking for USPS and 3 days since last tracking for UPS. If you do not contact us by these timeframes, insurance will not cover the package.

    Once you contact us, we research the shipment with the carrier and begin the claim process. The claims process can take 30 or more days to resolve, and many Lost in Transit shipments end up getting delivered late. If the package is delivered, you must notify us within 24 hours.

    See also Section 13 of our Terms and Conditions.

    What happens if my order is damaged in transit?+

    Though unlikely, if your order is damaged during transit and/or any items are missing we require you to contact JM Bullion immediately so we can begin the claims process. If you have taken possession of a shipment that is damaged and/or is missing items, you have 2 days (48 hours) from the date of delivery to contact us as stated in our Terms and Conditions.

    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. Please note, per our Terms and Conditions, once a package shows delivered, our responsibility ends. Please be available and attentive to receive the package when the courier arrives. Due to COVID 19, couriers are not always getting the signature.

    What if my order shows delivered but I did not receive it?+

    Please note that JM Bullion will not be responsible for reimbursements or insurance claims on packages that are successfully delivered as addressed. Our liability and insurance cease the moment the package is signed for or left at the specified delivery 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, Ethereum, Ripple, 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. For credit cards, put the order through with your billing address as the shipping address, and then call us to see if we can change it to an alternate. 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, UPS, or FedEx 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.

    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 7 fedEx shipments ship with a No Will Call restriction, meaning the package cannot be picked up from a UPS or FedEx location. This is a precaution to prevent orders from being fraudulently intercepted.

    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 offer UPS or FedEx 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.
