  • Description:

    Many collectors are surprised to find that the American Gold Buffalo series did actually produce more incremental sizes, aside from the standard one ounce. In 2008, the West Point Mint released a one, half, quarter, and tenth ounce coin and stamped them with their "W" mint-mark. The Certified Uncirculated Gold Buffalo Quarter Ounce 2008-W MS70 NGC is one of those coins and is permanently preserved in a NGC official coin holder.

    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.
