Why purchase this First Day of Issue 2018-W American Gold Buffalo Proof coin?
The most popular numismatic collectibles of the United States, such as the Silver and Gold Eagles, feature designs created for and struck on circulation coinage more than a century ago. The U.S. Mint continued this tradition in 2006 with the revival of the 1913 Buffalo Nickel imagery by sculptor James Earle Fraser for the Gold Buffalo series. This 2018-W proof is struck from 1 Troy oz. of .9999 fine gold by the West Point Mint.
Historic Buffalo Nickel Design
The reverse depicts an American buffalo standing on a mound of dirt. Inscribed "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "$50," with weight, purity and content.
The obverse features a classically styled portrait of a Native American chief, accompanied by the inscriptions "LIBERTY," "2018" and "W."
