Introduced in 2006, the American Gold Buffalo holds the distinction of being America’s inaugural 24-karat gold coin. This coin, much like other American bullion coin series, pays homage to a historic U.S. coin design that once graced the nation’s nickel from 1913 to 1938. Now, in the year 2023, you have the opportunity to own the 2023-W Proof American Buffalo 1 oz Gold Coins in perfect condition, available at Provident Metals.
Every 2023-W Proof American Buffalo 1 oz Gold Coin available here is housed within protective NGC plastic slabs. PF70 coins exhibit the full, original mint luster and are devoid of any detracting flaws. Ultra-cameo coins represent proof specimens with crisply defined, frosted designs and deeply-mirrored, clear fields. The Early Release designation indicates that these coins were graded within 30 days of their mint release.
Please note that each Proof American Buffalo included in this offering comes with a unique label within the slab, featuring a captivating photograph of bison in their natural North American habitat.
On the obverse of the 2023-W Proof American Buffalo Gold Coin, you’ll find a right-profile relief of an indigenous figure. This figure, created in 1913 by James Earle Fraser, was inspired by the facial features of three distinct real-world indigenous figures. The inscriptions here read LIBERTY, 2023, and Fraser’s F initial.
The reverse side of the 2023-W Proof Buffalo 1 oz Gold Coin proudly presents an image of the American bison, also crafted by Fraser. This powerful depiction showcases a majestic bison in left-profile relief as it grazes on a mound of dirt and grass. Inscriptions here include UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM, IN GOD WE TRUST, $50, and 1 OZ. .9999 FINE GOLD.
Bison, historically referred to as American bison or buffalo, once thrived as one of North America’s most populous large mammals, with estimates ranging from 30 to 60 million prior to European colonization. However, due to overhunting, habitat loss, and disease, their numbers plummeted to just a few hundred by the late 19th century.
