2013 West Point (W) Gold Buffalo Reverse Proof Chicago ANA Releases Signed COA (Certificate of Authenticity)Proof (PF)69 NGC Buffalo Label - Includes Original Government Packaging (OGP)
Mr. Richard A. Peterson, Acting Mint Director, was in attendance at the 2013 ANA World's Fair of Money Chicago and graciously took time to sign the Certificate of Authenticity for some of these coins. So, along with the coveted ANA Label, this coin includes a Certificate of Authenticity with Richard Peterson's signature!
The United States Mint chose one of it’s most beloved designs, the American Buffalo, sculpted by James Earle Fraser, (student of the legendary sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens), to celebrate the 100 year milestone of the American Buffalo Design this year by creating the first ever Gold Reverse Proof American Buffalo.
Visitors to the ANA Convention in Chicago August 13-17th were given the first opportunity to purchase (AND TAKE POSSESSION!) of this beautiful Reverse Proof Gold Buffalo with the Original Government Packaging. These coins were taken to the Official NGC Booth at the ANA Chicago Convention and were certified there. NGC is the Official Grading Service of the ANA and PNG.
NGC will only be grading these coins with this label during the Convention. The 2013 ANA World's Fair of Money Chicago was held from August 13, 2013 to August 17, 2013.
By reversing the mirror-like background finish of the traditional proof coin and applying it instead to the design elements of the coin, a magnificent visual contrast is achieved against the uniquely frosted background. This anniversary edition captures the beauty of coin design and the modernization of coin production over the last 100 years in one magnificent showpiece.
