Why purchase this $50 American 2019-W 1 oz Gold Buffalo Proof?
The Buffalo Nickel was a classic American coin issued from 1913-1938. The designs were specifically created to make it immediately identifiable as American to anyone in the world who would see it. Those designs were revived for the Gold Buffalo series, America's answer to gold coins that were purer than the Gold Eagle. This 1 oz. Proof Buffalo is part of the latest edition in that relatively young tradition. It was struck from .9999 fine gold at the West Point Mint, which is represented by a "W" mint mark on the left side of the obverse.
Classic Buffalo Design by James Earle Fraser
Both faces of the coin come from James Earle Fraser's Buffalo nickel. On the obverse is a right-side composite portrait of an aging Native American man. He has distinct facial features and long, braided hair that falls over his shoulders. At the back of his head, feathers are tied up in a traditional way.
The reverse bears a left-side view of an American bison. Fraser captured the massive size of the creature by making full use of the available space. Inscriptions on this face provide essential information about the coin, including its face value, "$50," its weight, "1 OZ., " and its purity, ".9999 FINE GOLD."
