Between 1913 and 1938, the gold buffalo coin was minted from the purest 24 carat gold. It was the first time that a coin was minted in such gold and before long the demand had surpassed the capability to mint the coins making them rare collectibles. That is why this reproduction has been produced in tribute to the original coin so that a new generation can enjoy this special coin for it's beautiful design. The proof coin has a limited run and buyers are restricted to a maximum of 5 coins. This coin is a tribute proof carrying no monetary value and is intended as a collector piece.
The infomercial claims that this recreation of James Earle Fraser's famous Buffalo gold piece gives collector's a unique opportunity to own this coin. Thanks to demand from investors, the original coins are almost impossible to come by, especially if you don't want to pay a small fortune. That is why this reproduction tribute proof has been minted. It features the same iconic design with a Buffalo on one side and a Native American head on the other. The coin is clad in 14 milligrams of genuine 24 carat gold and is supplied with a numbered certificate of authenticity to confirm this.
The cost of 2015 Buffalo Proof is $9.95 plus $4.95 shipping, for a total price of $14.90.
This tribute edition of the famous Buffalo Dollar is based on the original design by James Earle Fraser.
The original Buffalo Dollar was the first coin to be struck in pure gold and the US Government had to cease production due to a shortage of the gold blanks. This tribute proof is coated in 14 milligrams of genuine 24 carat gold.
These coins are a private collectible and are not associated with the United States Mint. However, each of the limited edition coins is not only marked as a copy, but also comes supplied with a certificate of authenticity. This confirms that the coating is 24 carat gold and that the coin is proof minted from the original Buffalo Dollar design.
This is a limited edition item which mean that there is a restriction on how many each individual can order. There is a limit of 5 proofs per person.
This is not real usable currency, but rather a copy of the original proof coin. It is a collector's item for you to enjoy. You cannot spend the coin and it should not be considered to be an investment.
Some of the nation's most well known coins are extremely rare, not to mention expensive. However, by purchasing tribute proofs you will get the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of these rare coins at a fraction of the cost.
The limited edition tribute proof coins are all numbered as per their certificate of authenticity. They will be issued in numerical order. That means that the sooner you order the lower the number you will receive. It also means that those ordering multiple proofs are going to receive consecutive numbers.
It is important to note that the Tribute Buffalo Dollar Proof coin is supplied by National Collector's Mint and is not endorsed by either the United States Mint or the US Government. These are not considered currency and cannot be spent. They are only worth the value of the 14 mg of gold included. This is a copy of the original coin intended as a collector's item and as per federal laws it is marked as a copy.
The infomercial explains some of the history of the original gold Buffalo Dollar. This was the first coin to be struck in pure 24 carat gold which went out of production due to a shortage of the gold blanks making the original coins much sought after. It is near impossible to obtain an original coin, and they are incredibly expensive. However, this tribute proof version of the coin gives everyone the opportunity to enjoy this iconic design. The coin is near identical in appearance to it's original aside from being marked as a copy. Instead of solid gold the recreation of the coin features gold plating.
