Look closely at history in the making. The $50 Buffalo Gold Piece is the purest gold coin ever struck by the U.S. Government. And it's the first U.S. coin ever struck using .9999 pure 24 kt gold. Its design is based on the famous buffalo nickel of 1913 to 1938, wildly popular with investors and collectors. The U.S. Government had to stop production because of a shortage of specially made gold blanks. It's no wonder the price of the last edition is going through the roof. Now you can reserve your own copy clad in 14 mgs of pure gold. National Collector's Mint private non-monetary minting recreates James Earle Fraser's American Buffalo against a mirror-like background on one side and his iconic Native American Indian head stands out in stunning relief on the other. Each proof comes with a certificate of authenticity.
