APMEX Inc. is pleased to announce that 2019 Gold Buffalos are now available to pre-order. As an authorized purchaser, APMEX is able to buy Gold Buffalo coins directly from the U.S. Mint, meaning APMEX customers will be among the first to receive their coins once produced by the mint in January.
In 2006, the U.S. Mint released its first-ever 1 oz Gold coin containing .9999 fine Gold to provide competition to the popular Gold Canadian Maple Leaf. These 1 oz Gold Buffalos were an instant success, combining Gold bullion appeal with classic American imagery.
Both the obverse and reverse of the Gold Buffalo is adapted from the original 1913 Buffalo Nickel, designed by James Earle Fraser. The two subjects of Fraser’s designs, a Native American chief and an American bison, harken back to the American West and were perfect subjects for this redesign by the U.S. Mint.
“Each year, the Gold Buffalo is one of our top selling coins,” APMEX Vice President of Merchandising Ryan Boyles said. “Our customers enjoy the combination of .9999 fine Gold content and the iconic design. While we enjoy carrying a wide assortment of unique products, we are pleased to always offer the most beloved coins people come back to year after year like the 1 oz Gold Buffalos.”
APMEX offers a range of options for the 1 oz Gold Buffalo, including MintDirect® Singles and MintDirect® Tubes. Both of these varieties are sealed in protective plastic, ensuring the coins remain in the same unadulterated condition as they were when received by APMEX in mint-sealed boxes. This seal of assurance is only available at APMEX.
Additionally, APMEX customers can be among the first to get their hands on certified Gold Buffalos, including the APMEXclusive® Black Diamond label from PCGS, which highlights the historical significance of this classic design.
As one of only a handful of authorized purchasers from the U.S. Mint, APMEX is able to purchase 2019 Gold Buffalo coins directly and offer them to customers worldwide. Pre-order 2019 Gold Buffalos from APMEX today to be among the first to receive these iconic coins when they are released from the mint.
