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.

First Strikes 2006 Gold Buffalo
This is the only year that NGC has labeled the Gold Buffalo with the First Strikes. Granted the NGC 2006 MS70 First Strikes was a high population of around 37,000. This coin was labeled and slabbed within 30 days of Mint Release of the Buffalo in 2006 and no more will ever be labeled First Strikes.This is also the reason you will pay a bit more for this coin or any coin bearing First Strikes or Early Releases. My opinion is as long as you stay with NGC or PCGS you can't go wrong. So even in 2026 when this coin is 20 years old you can proudly show it or sell it to someone and if they know about the reliability of NGC can be assured that coin was graded and slabbed in 2006 within 30 days of the coins release and that is only because of two words "First Release".
