Why add this 2006 $50 Gold Buffalo NGC MS70 FS Mint State 70 First Strikes to your collection?
This 2006 $50 Gold Buffalo offers a great option to collectors who have an appreciation for the first editions of popular coinage. Graded as MS70 by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), this piece is in perfect condition. The designs on both sides of the coin are those of James Earl Fraser and originally appeared on the Buffalo nickel in 1913. Fraser accomplished what he set out to do in making a coin that was instantaneously recognizable as American. Toward that end, he developed a composite portrait of a Native American man for the obverse, complete with feathers at the back of his head, and an American buffalo on the reverse. The large animal’s full profile is on display. For those who have served in, have relatives in, or simply have respect for the United States Army, the fact that it was struck at the West Point Mint may have special meaning, though the coin does not have the mint mark associated with it. This piece consists of 1 Troy oz. of .9999 pure gold, and the United States government, which issued the coin, guarantees both its weight and purity.
