About the 2006 $50 Gold Buffalo Proof
Never circulated and struck twice on special planchets, this dazzling proof carries a splendid shine. Like all bullion coins, the 2006 $50 Gold Buffalo proof is made of 1 full Troy ounce of .9999 fine gold. The quality of both the gold and the Proof allows you to enjoy owning this gorgeous piece of bullion on two levels.
On the obverse you'll find the striking James Earle Fraser "Buffalo Nickel" design that first made its debut in 1913, featuring a proud Native American chief in profile. On the reverse, also designed by Fraser, you'll find the bison Black Diamond, formerly a resident of the Central Park Zoo in the early 20th century.
What makes this coin a good buy?
A brilliant uncirculated proof in pristine condition is the most likely to attain value among collectors in the future. While as of right now only 2008 fractional Gold Buffalos are considered rare enough to attain much numismatic value, the market could change. Maintain this proof in perfect condition and you will be in a good position to realize that gain.
But no matter what the numismatic market does, you can always be sure the value of the bullion will hold in the near future and grow in the years to come.
