2008-W $10 Proof 24k Gold Buffalo NGC PF70 Brown Label
2008 was the first year that the gold buffalo proofs were available in fractionals as a separate line item compared to the Gold Eagle at the time. With these coins, the price of gold was declining at the time, but the sale price of the buffalo didn’t follow. This simple fact caused fewer collectors to see the value in the coin leading to exceedingly low mintages.
The obverse showcases a rendition of James Earle Fraser's acclaimed "Buffalo Nickel" design of an American Indian in profile that was originally minted in 1913.
The reverse depicts an American buffalo which is a visual representation of the bison named Black Diamond who, in the early 1900s, lived in the Central Park Zoo in New York City.
This $10 fractional Proof Gold Buffalo is a perfect PF70 from NGC in a brown label. Availability of this coin is extremely limited!
