2021 $50 1 0z. Gold Buffalo PCGS MS70 First Strike

First Released in 2006, the American Gold Buffalo was America’s first circulating coin minted in 24-karat gold. The iconic obverse and reverse designs were previously featured on the Buffalo Nickel, 1913 to 1938.
 
The inspiration for this popular design was an American bison named Black Diamond who resided at a New York zoological park. The portrait of a Native American  chief is based on chiefs – Chief Iron Tail of the Lakota Sioux, Chief Two Moons of the Cheyenne, and Chief Big Tree of the Kiowa.
 
Collectible coins have numismatic value over their gold content. Date, mintmark, condition, rarity and other factors are important to coin collectors. Coins are graded on a 70-point basis with 70 being absolute perfection. Despite modern minting techniques, only a limited number of coins have the full sharp strike and suburb eye appeal required to be certified and graded in perfect MS70 condition by PCGS.
