The US Mint expanded 2008 offerings for the American Gold Buffalo program to include collectible uncirculated coins minted across a full range of denominations. The 2008-W Uncirculated Gold Buffalo coins are struck on specially burnished blanks and carry the “W” mintmark. These were branded collector versions of the coins, distinct from the regular bullion issues.
Contains 1/10 oz. of .9999 fine Gold.
NGC encapsulation protects and guarantees the coin's perfect MS-70 condition.
Available only in 2008, the fractional Gold Buffalos are some of the lowest-mintage pieces of the entire series.
This 2008-W Buffalo is minted with a special burnished finish, also only available in 2008.
Obverse: James Earle Fraser's classic portrait of an American Indian in profile, as first seen on the Buffalo Nickel in 1913.
Reverse: the American Buffalo, adapted from the original reverse of the classic Buffalo Nickel. This image is thought to be based on Black Diamond, a buffalo living in the Central Park Zoo in the early 20th century.
Sovereign coin backed by the U.S. government.
A note about the gold/coins I am selling. Please do not quote the price of gold to me. I know exactly what it is. Do not forget you are also paying for the collectability of the coin. Also, do not send me the URL to some website selling the coin cheaper. Feel free to buy the coin from that website. I will not be offended.
