Why Buy the 2018 Gold American Buffalo MS-70?

Unlike Gold Buffalo Bullion Coins, this selection of 2018 1 oz. Gold American Buffalos is designated with the prestigious First Strike label from the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) and is available in perfect Mint State 70 condition.

A 2018 First Strike coin from PCGS designates coins issued in the first 30 days of the mint’s release for that year. The First Strike distinction means it is from among the coin’s earliest production runs.

“This designation not only adds value to modern coins,” writes PCGS, “but takes modern coin collecting to another level with multiple Mint releases each year.”

The “MS” in MS-70 stands for “Mint State.” Mint State is a coveted classification only awarded to coins that are in impeccable condition. In the coin world, “MS-70” identifies coins in perfect condition. That means no scratches, no smudges, no imperfections. They are fully struck and lustrous, free of visible marks under 5x magnification. MS-70 coins are U.S. Money Reserve’s specialty!
