Low Reverse Buffalo Mintage!

Ian Russell on Sun, Sep 08, 2013 03:22:55 PM
We were surprised by the low final mintage of the Reverse Proof Gold Buffalo, which went off sale at the U.S. Mint last week.

The final mintage of 47,836 is much lower than we expected.  Prior to the coin going on sale, I was personally hoping for a mintage under 70,000.

Many collectors and dealers compare the Reverse Proof Buffalo to the 2009 Ultra High Relief, which sold 115,000 coins and currently trades significantly higher than its U.S. Mint issue price, and also 50% higher than the issue price of the Buffalo.
