Why purchase this 2022-W $50 American 1 oz Gold Buffalo Proof?
The American Gold Buffalo Proof Series continues with this 2022 edition. The coin is the proof counterpart to the Gold Buffalo, which dates back to 2006. The series was first introduced because collectors wanted finer American coins than the Gold Eagle and Gold Eagle Proof which are struck from .9167 fine gold. Gold Buffaloes are struck from .9999 fine gold. The coin features a pair of classic designs that come from one of the most iconic coins in American history, the Buffalo Nickel.
Featuring the Iconic Buffalo Nickel Designs of James Earle Fraser
Both of this coin's designs come from James Earle Fraser's Buffalo Nickel. Obverse: The obverse bears a composite portrait of a Native American man. He has distinct facial features, a feather tied up in his hair, and braids that fall over his shoulders. "LIBERTY" is inscribed along the rim in front of his face, while the date, "2022," and artist's final initial, "F," are inscribed on his shoulder.
Reverse: An American bison features on the reverse in left-side profile. The two statutory mottoes, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "IN GOD WE TRUST," are inscribed above its back and below its head, respectively. The coin's face value, "$50," is noted below. Along the rim are inscriptions of the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and its weight and purity, "1 OZ. .9999 FINE GOLD." James Earle Fraser was a prolific sculptor whose work can still be seen in many places, most notable around Washington, DC. He is best known for designing the Buffalo Nickel.
