    Buffalo Gold

    Just thought I'd show everybody my American Buffalo One Ounce Gold Proof Coin before I take it to the bank and put it in my safe deposit box. This one definitely did not come out of the ground folks. I am a collector in addition to being a coinshooter.

    BK,
    Yes, it was minted at West Point. The W mint mark is next to the Indian's neck.

    WOW!!!! Not to be nosey. But what does something like that go for? Also what does the 50 mean?, one ounce of gold surly goes for more than 50?

    Backitup,
    The mint has to put a nominal value on it so it can be called a coin. In this case, the nominal value is $50.00. In actuality it cost $800.00 straight from the mint.

    Re: Buffalo Gold

    That is one beautiful coin! I finally got to see one in person the other day at the coin shop. I was surprised at how big it was. From all the pictures I saw, I always figured it to be about the size of a Buff Nickel... boy was I shocked when it turned out to be the size of a Half Dollar.

    It is a beauty!
    When you have children, you realize what your purpose in life is. There is nothing more important than your family. Cherish it. It can be gone in a blink of an eye.

    Leave it up to the gov. to put a 50 dollar amount. Nice coin though.

    Beautiful coin. That design is one of my favorites. I have a soft spot in my heart for the actual buffalo nickel. That gold version is a real beaut. Do you know how many they minted (will mint)?
