  • Description:

    The Certified Uncirculated Gold Buffalo Half Ounce 2008-W MS70 NGC Early Release is the only half ounce in the American Gold Buffalo series. The Certified Uncirculated Gold Buffalo Half Ounce 2008-W MS70 NGC Early Release was minted at the West Point Mint and has earned the MS70 grade. Due to the Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005, the US Mint was mandated to produce a 24-karat gold coin that carries the legal tender value of $50 and has a mintage limit up to 300,000 coins. The American Gold Buffalo was first released on July 13, 2006 and avid collectors have never looked back.

    When looking at the American Gold Buffalo coins, collectors will find them familiar since their design comes from the 1913 Buffalo Nickel. 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.
