Few coins have created such a stir or were as eagerly sought by collectors as the $50 Gold Buffalo coin based on the revered Buffalo Nickel that circulated between 1913 and 1938. Comprised of one full ounce of gold bullion, the $50 Gold Buffalo is the first .9999 fine 24-karat gold coin struck by the US government. Considered both an investment and a collectible, this wildly popular coin was snapped up by eager collectors. This unprecedented introduction in U.S. minting history has coin experts buzzing. Itís no wonder the price of the last edition is going through the roof Ė as high as $3,400.00! Based upon American Sculptor James Earle Fraserís classic design featuring a Native American in profile on the obverse and an American buffalo on the reverse, it showcases the beauty of the American West. This historic release has brought the buffalo design back from extinction, since the Buffalo Nickel was last minted over 73 years ago, thus resurrecting two of Americaís best-known Old West icons with this stunning, uniquely American gold coin. Fraserís immortal classic is generally considered to be among the best designs of any U.S. coin! Now, it graces Americaís newest and purest gold coin, the $50 Buffalo Gold Piece. Now, you can reserve your own copy of the 2012 $50 Buffalo Gold Piece. Itís the purest gold coin ever minted by the U.S. Government recreated as a 24 KT Pure Gold Clad Proof. This magnificent 14 mg pure gold clad proof features the beautiful frosted American Buffalo against a mirror-like background on the reverse. On the obverse, the classic Indian Head design stands out in striking relief.
