2013-W 1 Oz. (.9999) Gold Buffalo $50 PCGS PR70 DCAM FS Deep Cameo First Strike (Buffalo Label)

This is the eighth year of the Buffalo Gold series, and a special year it is. The design from which the Buffalo Gold coin was made is the Buffalo Nickel by James Earle Fraser which began in 1913. In fact, 1913 was the only year of issue of the 'mound style' nickel reverse which depicts the buffalo (actually an American Bison) standing on a dirt mount - the same design that was carried forward to the Buffalo gold coins. So that makes 2013 the 100th anniversary of the use of this iconic American coin design.
