Why Make This Proof 70 2006-W $50 Gold Buffalo the Next Addition to Your Collection?

In 2006, the U.S. Mint began minting the American Gold Buffalo series. One of the reasons these coins initially received so much attention is because they were the first U.S. coins to be made of .9999 fine gold. This 2006-W Gold Buffalo weighs 1 Troy oz. and has a proof finish. For the first year of issue, mintage figures were high. The West Point Mint struck 246,267 of these coins. Since so many of them were struck, they are among the most affordable of the series so far. On the obverse of this 2006-W proof Gold Buffalo, a Native American man is shown. The reverse displays a standing buffalo along with the weight and purity inscriptions.

This Buffalo was submitted to PCGS for grading, where it received the highest grade possible, PR70. The Deep Cameo designation was awarded because this Gold Buffalo displays excellent visual contrast.
