2006 USA Buffalo One Ounce Gold Bullion Coin NGC Graded MS 70 First Strikes

06EL 2006 USA Buffalo 1oz Gold MS 70 First Strikes Holder
£2,295.00
(VAT Exempt)
24-carat gold American Buffalo, graded MS 70 by NGC with a ‘First Strikes’ certification. This US bullion coin comes sealed in its Numismatic Guaranty Company holder which preserves its flawless finish. These sought-after $50 coins were first issued by the United States Mint in 2006 but their iconic and instantly recognisable design is much older. It was adapted from James Earle Fraser’s engravings for the Indian Head Nickel, used on those coins from 1913 to 1938. The obverse shows a Native American man, facing right and covering the surface of the coin. The date is shown on his shoulder and the word ‘LIBERTY’ in front. This proof coin bears a ‘W’ mint mark behind the portrait’s neck for the West Point Mint where all American Buffalos are struck. The reverse gives these coins their name and shows an American bison, sometimes called a buffalo, standing in profile with ‘UNITED · STATES · OF · AMERICA’ above. The denomination and composition of the coin appear below: ‘$50 1OZ. .9999 FINE GOLD’. The premier US 99.99% gold bullion coin, the Buffalo has a comparable specification to the Canadian gold Maple Leaf or the British gold Britannia. This graded example - one of 136,503 bullion coins minted in this year - was among the first struck. Its holder bears NGC’s now discontinued ‘First Strikes’ designation. An attractive, high-grade collector's piece.
