Why add this Early Releases 2018-W Proof Gold American Buffalo coin to your collection?

2018 marks the thirteenth year of release of the American Gold Buffalo coin series produced by the United States Mint. The coin's imagery is an homage to a historic design of the early 20th century, that of the beloved Indian Head/Buffalo Nickel created by sculptor James Earle Fraser in 1913. This 32.7 mm diameter $50 Gold Buffalo Proof, bearing the date of 2018, was struck at the U.S. Mint in West Point, New York, from 1 Troy oz. of .9999 fine gold.

Design Replicates the Type I Buffalo Nickel

An intricately detailed portrait of a Native American male dominates the obverse, surrounded by a mirrored field with a hammered texture. Inscribed "LIBERTY" above, "W" and "2018" below.

The reverse features the same textured mirrored surface, as a background to a left facing American buffalo standing on a dirt mound. Inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "IN GOD WE TRUST," along with weight, purity and denomination.

Virtually Flawless Early Releases Proof 69

Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded this gorgeous 2018-W Gold Buffalo Proof a nearly perfect Proof 69, with the notation of Ultra Cameo (UC) for the remarkably defined visual contrast between the frosted and mirrored finishes. Received for grading within the first thirty days of release, the 1 oz. gold Proof earned the additional designation of Early Releases.
