Why add this $50 Proof 2006-W Gold Buffalo to your collection.

This Proof 2006-W $50 Gold Buffalo comes from the first issue of the Gold Buffalo and was the only proof version released in that year. 246,267 were minted, all of which have the "W" Mint mark of the West Point Mint, where they were struck from .9999 fine gold. This coin belongs in the collection of every fan of James Earle Fraser, as well as those who collect key date modern coins.

Uniquely American Designs by James Earle Fraser

Both designs for this coin were taken from James Earle Fraser's Buffalo nickel. The obverse bears a composite right-side portrait of an American Indian that takes up nearly the entire face of the coin. Fraser makes the man's ethnicity clear through feathers adorning the back of his head and his distinct facial features.

On the reverse is an American bison, which roams the plains of the West. Again, Fraser made use of the available space and had it span nearly the entire horizontal diameter. Several inscriptions are included above and below the animal, including the coin's face value, weight, and purity.

Nearly Perfect Proof 69 Ultra Cameo

Because its one or two flaws can only be seen under magnification, this coin received the Numismatic Guaranty Corporations second best grade, Proof 69. NGC also recognized the remarkably strong contrasts between frosted devices and mirrored fields by certifying it as an Ultra Cameo.
