2017-W 50 Dollar 1-oz Gold Buffalo Proof NGC PF70UCAM 225th Anniversary - Black
A Timeless American Design Returns in 99.99% Pure Gold!
What do you see when you look at a Gold Buffalo Proof? For sure, the first thing that impresses is the brilliance of its one ounce of 99.99% pure gold, the product of specially treated planchets struck twice by polished dies. But what else do you notice? Is it how each proof's frosted details rise firmly from their mirrored backgrounds? Is it how the soft lines of James Earle Fraser's original Buffalo Nickel design come together to create images that appear rugged and weathered? Do you see a solemn memorial to frontier days past or a celebration of heritage and continuing traditions? No matter what you find within its fields, Gold Buffalo Proofs have a distinct beauty that has been attracting collectors for over a decade. Now, the 2017 Gold Buffalo Proofs have arrived at our vaults, and they're ready for your collection!
Two Anniversaries, One Incredible Proof!
The return of the Gold Buffalo Proof in 2017 heralds two important anniversaries -- the 11th year of this collectors' favorite series and the 225th anniversary of the United States Mint. And when it comes to honoring both, these proofs do a spectacular job! Struck at the West Point Mint in New York, each of these lustrous $50 U.S. legal-tender proofs showcases the signature "W" mintmark. And, of course, the expertise of the West Point Mint continues to literally shine through these skillfully proof-struck coins.
The Proof You Need, the Features You Want!
Your 2017 1-oz Gold Buffalo Proof will also come with these superb features:
- Your coin will be graded Proof-70 Ultra Cameo (PF70UC) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), a distinction that means your perfectly-graded Gold Buffalo Proof will have ZERO imperfections -- showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended!
- Your Gold Buffalo Proof will also be sonically sealed in an acrylic case with a black core insert -- providing you the best in protection while giving you clear sightlines and perfect visual contrast for every beautiful detail. In 1987, NGC used this same color of display core when they started grading coins, switching to white as their default color soon after. Now, NGC has reintroduced this popular "retro" core color!
- Finally, all of your Gold Buffalo Proof's unique characteristics will be described in detail on the acrylic case’s special 225th anniversary label, celebrating the founding of the U.S. Mint in 1792 and featuring an image of the first mint in Philadelphia.
Gold Buffalo Proofs like these see consistently high demand from year to year. And, with the U.S. Mint's big anniversary this year, we're expecting even more orders for these legendary proofs. Don't delay -- now that you have it in your sights, put one (or several) in your cart now!
