2009-W 1 oz $50 Proof Gold American Buffalo (w/Box & COA)


This stunning 2009 W 1 oz $50 Gold American Buffalo Proof Coin is one of the few highly praised releases, having been minted with a Proof finish and being labeled Gold American Buffalo Coins - the iconic gold bullion coin produced by the United States Mint from .9999 pure gold. The design of the American Buffalo gold bullion coin is a modified version of James Earle Fraser's design for the Indian Head nickel (Type 1), which was issued in 1913.

The obverse depicts a Native American, whom Fraser said he created as a mixture of features from three chiefs of different American Indian tribes: Big Tree, Iron Tail, and Two Moons, who posed as models for him to sketch. The obverse has the inscription of the motto "LIBERTY" on the top right, the year of mintage on the bottom left, and below that the letter F for Fraser, as well as the mint mark W for West Point.

The reverse shows an American Bison, which are also commonly referred to as buffalo. The animal depicted on the reverse is believed by most to be the bison named Black Diamond, who lived in the New York City Central Park Zoo during the 1910s. It is said that Fraser had to have someone distract the buffalo while he sneaked to a position beside it in order to draw. Otherwise, the buffalo would turn to face him and Fraser wouldn't have been able to get the profile he wanted.

Coin Features:

  • Made from 0.9999 fine gold with a weight of 1 oz
  • Face value $50.
  • Comes with a Proof Finish.
  • Sealed inside a capsule which is placed in the original United States Mint box along with the Certificate of Authenticity.
  • Obverse: Showcases a rendition of James Earle Fraser's acclaimed "Buffalo Nickel" design of an American Indian in profile originally minted in 1913.
  • Reverse: Depicts an American buffalo on the reverse which is a visual representation of the bison named Black Diamond who, in the early 1900s, lived in the Central Park Zoo in New York City.
