The U.S mint began striking coins officially in 1793, a year after establishment. Nine full years before Americans first gold rush, which originated in North Carolina in 1802, known as the Caroline Gold Rush. The U.S Mints strongest contribution for collectors looking to buy gold bullion, arose when the U.S. Mint created one of the worlds purest coins to be favoured by gold bullion investors.
The 1 Oz buffalo coin was the nation’s first 24ct gold coin. The American gold buffalo series is designed by American Sculptor, James Earle Fraser. A modified design taken from the design of the Indian Head Nickel which was originally struck in 1913. The 1oz Gold Buffalo remains a top choice for investors looking to buy gold since the 1oz gold coins release in 2006.
The first United States Mint was created in Philadelphia in 1792, which remains the U.S. Mints largest facility, and soon joined by other centres, each site hallmarks their coins, identifiable by their own mint marks. There are four active coin-producing mints: Philadelphia, Denver, San Francisco, and West Point.
