Why Choose This PF70 Early Releases 2011-W 1 oz. Proof Gold Buffalo?

In 2006, the US Mint introduced the American Gold Buffalo series. At that time, these were the first coins from the US Mint to be made of .9999 fine gold. This created very high interest initially, but as the series progressed some low mintage years came around to present intriguing opportunities for collectors. This proof Gold Buffalo was struck at the West Point Mint in 2011. The final mintage for this coin was 28,683, which is moderate for the series.

On both the obverse and reverse, the work of James Earle Fraser can be seen. These designs were first used for a classic American coin, the Buffalo nickel. The obverse shows a Native American and the reverse depicts a standing buffalo.

Since this proof Gold Buffalo was submitted to the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) during its first 30 days of issue, it received the Early Releases designation. It was awarded the grade of Proof 70 and the Ultra Cameo designation. That means not only is this coin perfect, it also exhibits excellent visual contrast.

Don’t wait, order this NGC PF70 UC Early Releases 2011-W $50 1 oz. proof Gold Buffalo for your collection while you can!
