The latest gold coins available on the market are gold buffalo coins. The Presidential One Dollar Coin Act of 2005 made the creation of these coins possible, making the gold buffalo coins the first pure gold coins released by the US Mint. On the obverse side of the coin, you'll find a modified image of James Earle Fraser's Indian head from the Buffalo Nickel. The reverse carries a modified American Buffalo, also a Fraser design from the Buffalo Nickel. To purchase a one-ounce proof coin, you'll spend around $500.
