2022 $50 Buffalo NGC MS70 – Iconic design minted in 24 karat gold
 
Description
 
This 2022 American Gold Buffalo coin is minted from one ounce of pure 24-karat gold and features the iconic Buffalo Indian head design by James Earle Fraser, which appeared on the Buffalo nickel struck by the United States Mint from 1913 to 1938. Fraser was born in Minnesota in 1876 and raised in South Dakota where has was exposed to frontier life and the experience of Native Americans, he created his design intending that it would never be mistaken as anything but an American coin. His initial F for Fraser appears on the obverse of the coin below the date.
 
Condition
 
Coins are graded on the Sheldon numeric grading scale of 1 to 70. To achieve the top grade 70, a coin must have no post-production imperfections even under magnification. We offer this coin in flawless MS70 condition and certified by NGC. The coin is signed by Edmund C. Moy and David J. Ryder, the 38th and 39th Directors of the United States Mint, both men played a pivotal role in the creation and success of the American Gold Buffalo series.       
 
Design
 
The magnificent Native American depiction on the obverse of the coin is believed to be based on three different American Indians. Two of the American Indians who modeled for Fraser as he sculpted the coin were named by the designer before his death. They were Chief Iron Tail of the Lakota Sioux and Chief Two Moons of the Cheyenne. Although many have claimed to have had a sitting with Fraser for this design, he could not recall the name of the third person, and satisfactory documentation has not yet been found to identify that individual. It is widely believed that the bison on the coin's reverse was modeled after Black Diamond, a popular attraction at the New York Zoological Gardens.
