Now in their ninth year of production, the 1 oz. $50 Buffalo gold coin is minted of the finest gold used in United States coins at a fineness of .9999 fine. This fineness was originally created as a means of competing with coins minted in other countries of a similar fineness.

The Buffalo Gold coin is minted each year in three separate issues - the bullion coin (without a mintmark) for bullion trading and collectors, the 'collector edition' coins with a W mintmark in mint state finish, and the W minted proof coins. These are the W minted proof coins.

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.
