Why add this 2018-W Proof Gold American Buffalo to your collection of precious metals?
Design of the American Gold Buffalo series is based upon the Buffalo/Indian Head Nickel which was produced by the U.S. Mint from 1913 until 1938. This 2018 Gold Buffalo proof release features American sculptor James Earle Fraser's original design, struck from 1 Troy oz. of .9999 fine gold at the West Point Mint.
Classic 1913 Buffalo Nickel Design
The reverse depicts an American buffalo named Black Diamond, that lived at New York's Central Park Zoo in the early 20th century, surrounded by the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "IN GOD WE TRUST," the coin's weight, purity, and "$50."
An incredibly detailed image of a Native American Chief adorns the obverse, contrasted against a mirrored field with a smooth hammered texture. Inscribed "LIBERTY," "2018" and "W."
First Strike Proof 69 Deep Cameo with PCGS Buffalo Label
This virtually flawless 2018-W Gold Proof American Buffalo is graded by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) to be Proof 69. The $50 coin is presented in a PCGS protective holder accompanied by a stylish Buffalo themed First Strike certification label, which confirms that the coin was received by the grading service within the first thirty days of its May 10, 2018 release date. The proof was also awarded the Deep Cameo (DCAM) designation, which describes the dramatic amount of contrast between the frosted and mirrored surfaces.
Make this magnificent, superbly graded 2018-W American Buffalo the next addition to your Gold Proof collection!

When it comes to modern U.S. coins, rarity as defined solely by a coin’s mintage usually matters less than the rarity of a particular coin relative to the other coins in its series.
Here are arguably the five top examples of modern U.S coins that are likely to remain in demand indefinitely and in most cases may remain the key date coins within their respective series.
The legacy of some of America’s best-known coins, including the Five Cent Indian Head (better known as the Buffalo Nickel) and the series that is based on it, the American Gold Buffalo, remain shrouded in mystery.
