Why purchase this flawless 2019 Proof Medal Smithsonian Zoo Buffalo Commemorative Set?
The Smithsonian National Zoo was established in Washington D.C. in 1889 under the authorization of President Grover Cleveland. This 3-piece proof medal set, struck in commemoration of the 130th Anniversary of the Zoo, honors one of the Zoo's first animals, the American Buffalo. The stunning design is credited to sculptor Natanya van Niekerk, who is best known for her work on the South African Mint's wildlife themed series. Produced by the Commonwealth Mint, the set includes a 1 oz. silver, 1 oz. gold and a 1/4 oz. gold medallion, each struck with .999 fine metallic purity.
Magnificent Buffalo Imagery
Each reverse features a buffalo standing beneath a sun inspired by the Smithsonian logo. Inscribed "FOUNDING OF THE NATIONAL ZOO." President Cleveland is depicted on each obverse, along with the Smithsonian sun logo and "2019."
