Why add this 2008-W $25 1/2 oz. Proof Gold Buffalo NGC PF69 UC (Exclusive Buffalo Label) to your collection?

This 2008-W ½ oz. Proof Gold Buffalo is perfect for collectors who like coins that are distinctly American. That is because it uses the designs that first appeared on James Earle Fraser’s Buffalo nickel. A right side portrait of a Native American man dominates the obverse, with just enough room for the inscription of the word “LIBERTY” in front of his face. The feathers that adorn the back of his head, long hair tied down by the side, and unique facial features make his heritage evident. In the lower left is the W” Mint mark of the West Point Mint. On the reverse is a left side profile of a buffalo. Spanning nearly the full diameter of the coin, the animal’s massive size is on full display. Several statutory inscriptions are included, as are the face value of the coin, “$25,” and information about its gold content, “1/2 OZ. .9999 FINE GOLD.” NGC found either one or two non-detracting flaws on this coin and so gave it the second highest possible grade, PF69 Ultra Cameo. Whether you like American coins or coins with animals, pick up this piece for your collection today.
