Why add this 2006-W $50 1 oz. Proof Gold Buffalo NGC PF70 UC (Buffalo Label) to your collection?

This 2006-W $50 Proof Gold Buffalo is a beautiful coin that gets its design from the Buffalo nickel that James Earle Fraser designed in 1913. This was the first year of issue of the Gold Buffalo, which makes this perfect proof version even more of a find. The coin gets its design from the famed Buffalo nickel, which was designed by James Earle Fraser in 1913. On the reverse of the coin is the animal for which it is named. Some controversy over the model that Fraser used continues to this day, making for a point of discussion among collectors. Fraser successfully portrayed the size of the animal by having it dominate the reverse. In fact, it extends nearly the full diameter of this coin. “$50,” the coin’s face value, is inscribed at the bottom along with another inscription, “1 OZ. .9999 FINE GOLD,” that provides information about its gold content. The obverse is dominated by a composite portrait of a Native American man. His long hair is tied down over his right shoulder. He faces to the right side of the coin, so the feathers that adorn the back of his head appear to the left. The “W” Mint mark of the West Point Mint appears just below the feathers.
