  • Description:

    Many collectors are surprised when they hear that the American Gold Buffalo series does have a half ounce coin but only in one date. The Certified Uncirculated Gold Buffalo Half Ounce 2008-W MS69 NGC is referred to as the "brown label" because it is not an Early Release coin. The Certified Uncirculated Gold Buffalo Half Ounce 2008-W MS69 NGC proudly sports its MS69 grade, by the high reputable NGC company. Issued in 2006, the American Gold Buffalo coins immediately became a coveted piece for collectors and investors interested in buying gold coins. The American Gold Buffalo Coins represent a great way to buy gold at relatively low premiums over the current gold price, while paying homage to it's timeless design. James Earle Fraser is the artist responsible for such a stunning coin design, meeting an American bison in real life, just to draw it portrait. Black Diamond is the American Bison used as a model for the buffalo design. It has been recorded Fraser needed to constantly distract the beast, while drawing its portrait, to contain the side profile view, due to the bison wanting to constantly look forward.

    James Earle Fraser was a student of another gold coin legacy designer, Augustus Saint-Gaudens. James Earle Fraser was born in Minnesota and experienced life first-hand with the Native Americans and the struggle of being pushed into confined reservations. James Earle Fraser is best known for his Buffalo Nickel design and his End of the Trail sculpture, depicting the physical, sociological, and emotional exhaustion the Native Americans endured as settlers took over their land.
