Your 2011 Proof American Buffalo 1 oz Gold Coin will arrive in a presentation box, preserving the condition of your coin. Your purchase will also arrive with a Certificate of Authenticity.


For the obverse field of the 2011-W Proof American Buffalo 1 oz Gold Coin, you will be pressed to find James Earle Frasers image featured. It is the portrait of a handsome Native American. He is depicted in a right-facing portrait and contains the facial features of three different muses the designer had hired to be the face of the coin. The inscriptions on the obverse include LIBERTY, and 2011.


For the reverse field of the 2011-W Proof American Buffalo 1 oz Gold Coin, James Earle Fraser has another design featured. This is the image of a buffalo that engulfs the entire rim of the coin in an attempt to break out of the confines of the coin. He is inspired by a bison called the black diamond that was kept in a New York zoo and is considered to be one of the largest buffalos in American history. Inscriptions include UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM, IN GOD WE TRUST, $50, and 1 OZ .9999 FINE GOLD.


The Public Law Act authorized this innovative process in 2005, one year before the release of this groundbreaking series. Its creation paved the way for a more creative approach to the production of gold coins, although, to date, none have yet to top the prestige and hype the American Buffalo Gold coin generated. With a face value of 50 dollars and even more extrinsic value in its worth, this coin is a necessary addition to any portfolio of hard assets.
