  • Description:

    Going down in history as the first 24-karat gold coin to be produced by the US Mint, the Uncirculated Gold Buffalo Coin was first released in the Summer of 2006. The Certified Uncirculated Gold Buffalo Half Ounce 2008-W MS70 NGC has earned a high BU grade and is encased in an official NGC holder. The design is rooted in American history, inspired by the Indian Head Nickel design of 1913. 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.

    This emblematic design has been consistently resurrected for other bullion products over the years and has never tired in popularity. For those who enjoy the process of buying gold, for investment purposes or sheer pleasure, the Uncirculated Gold Buffalo Coins should be included on their list! The Uncirculated Gold Buffalo Coins do not have unlimited mintages, like many other bullion coins, resulting in a yearly free for all, among collectors and investors, once the coin is released.
