  • Perfect 70: These coins have the highest grade on the Sheldon Grading Scale which runs from 1-70. They are in absolutely perfect condition and come in a slab from PCGS that guarantees their authenticity and condition.
  • Famous design: There is no nick or wear on these Perfect Gold Buffalos to mar James Earle Fraser’s famous design, with its compilation of three Native American chiefs on the obverse, or front, and Black Diamond, the largest bison in captivity in its time, on the reverse, or back.
  • First Strike: The PCGS First Strike designation means that PCGS received these coins within 30 days of release.
