From the other place. "The mint just informed their authorized distributors about them [sic] shipping the 2010 Buffs [/sic] this morning" (4/26).

APMEX has them $49.95 over spot right now. Is this a good price? I am looking at purchasing silver right now, but this caught my eye, and was thinking of picking up one.

Just received the PCGS newsletter about the BUFFALOES.

So I checked and the +2008+ yipee........

MS $25 Buffalo is up 503% from sale date

while the

MS $25 Gold Eagle is also up around $1,500 for a MS70 "W."

Funny how they were both in that 2008 PROSPERITY set; I just found a few in the attic that I remembered were "stuffed there," five of them....

In SLABBING Time in May and go away for a world CRUISE,

Putting them in a hardwood box will just make them cost more. Should just put them on sheets like last year. Maybe they'll throw in a pair of gloves for handling.

Saw a 1/10 gold buff for 400 bucks! Know they are a rarity but Is it really worth it?

Who all is going to pick up one of the proofs? I might and if I do will send it off to NGC for grading. I will make sure I do not open the box for any reason.

I will... but will not slab.
I may do the same as you and not open the OGP. The proof Buffs are turning out to be a nice collectors item.(06 - ongoing)

to bad they killed the fractionals

They really do need to bring back the fractionals, and produce them in amonts where they cost as much as AGE's. It's such a nice looking coin and it would be nice to have a 24K coin that is not a 1oz or a spouse. Any ideas when that would happen? If ever?

There would have to be a serious drop in physical gold demand for fractional buffs to even become a possibility. Gold eagle sales could break a 10-year monthly record this month. The mint can only procure so many gold blanks.

No need, gold coins won't take any damage so long as you hold them by the edges. The first thing pretty much any grading service is going to do when evaluating a coin is to pick it up and study it with bare hands anyway.

A number of folks are playing the ODDS that NUMERICALLY low populations of certain coins will really appreciate in teh future.

I expect NUMISMATICALLY slabbed GOLD and perhaps SILVER dollar/eagle sized coins to sell at 5 to 10 times their level and price now in the next few years - 2 to 7 years.

I do not know exactly why but I think that the Euro crisis is causing a shortage of Krugerrands in specific. In fact most of the major dealers are paying more for Krugs right now than they are gold buffalos. Trading Krugs for Buffs is a total no brainer. Buffs are 2nd priority at the mint and when supply issues come up, getting 1 oz Eagles out the door 1st is what the mint wants to do. Last summer premiums on buffs got to as high as 160 over spot and it could easily happen again. Being in the states I would rather hold masses of Buffs than Krugs as bullion and I will try to initiate a trade this week and see if a dealer will take it.

To date ,2017 is the lowest bullion mintage since the Buff came out in 08. Is the mint going to stop producing the Buff?

Has it been almost 8 years already!? Time sure does fly.

Continue to purchase and put aside. If the US Mint continues its course, several gold options each year, the Bison and Unc Au Eagle will continue to be minatge winners.
