Why add the Proof 69 2017-W 1 oz Gold Buffalo Proof $50 to your collection?

The Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) awarded this 2017-W 1 oz Gold Buffalo Proof $50 the high collector grade of Proof 69 Ultra Cameo. The Gold Buffalo series was introduced in 2006 by the U.S. Mint to compete with other .9999 pure gold issues like the Canadian Maple Leaf. The series has been very popular with collectors and remains the only continuing 24-karat gold series struck by the Mint. This example was struck to proof quality at the West Point branch of the Mint on a planchet guaranteed to contain 1 oz.

Work of James Earle Fraser

The iconic design on this issue was borrowed from James Earle Fraser's popular Buffalo Nickel. That design circulated from 1913 until 1938. The obverse features the effigy of a Native American Chief while the reverse features the image of a buffalo.

What is Proof 69 Ultra Cameo?

Proof 69 coins are high-level collector coins. These are examples that have full Mint luster, abundant eye appeal and sharp strikes. The coins with the prestigious Ultra Cameo designation exhibit the desirable "cameo" contrast. This indicates the difference between the frosted, raised details of the design and the flat, mirrored fields, or negative space in the design.
