US Mint Sales: Reverse Proof Gold Buffalo Doubles Regular Proof

by Mike Unser on August 14, 2013 · 5 comments

New US Mint Products, Including Reverse Proof Gold Buffalo

Of the three new products released last week, the Mint’s Reverse Proof Gold Buffalo was by far the most popular

Three new U.S. Mint products debuted last week. Stealing the thunder and continuing to on a daily basis is the 2013 Reverse Proof Gold Buffalo.

Released last Thursday, sales of 26,905 by Tuesday more than doubled the regular proof version which climbed 524 to 12,821. Worth noting, earlier today the United States Mint raised prices on platinum and gold coins, including those of the regular proof and reverse proof Gold Buffalo.

It’ll be curious to see daily sales of the reverse proof going forward. Sales conclude on September 5 for the 24-karat gold coin. There is always a natural drop around the middle weeks for products that have ordering deadlines. In this case, there may be some mild swings in that time as potential buyers watch and react to possible pricing changes each week. That appears to have happened today. Sales picked up a touch from Tuesday as collectors may have moved from the sidelines when they realized the reverse proof’s price was moving up $50 to $1,690. The following table offers the daily increases for the coin since its release.

Daily Sales of 2013 Reverse Proof Gold Buffalo

  Daily Sales Total Sales
Thursday Released
Friday 21,009 21,009
Weekend
Monday 3,874 24,883
Tuesday 2,022 26,905
Wednesday 2,548 29,453

 

Because they cost so much more than clad or silver products, it’s unusual to see a gold coin as the Mint’s best weekly seller but that is indeed the case.

This week’s U.S. Mint sales report included three new products and updates to 188 others. From those older products, 91 outperformed their prior weekly sales compared to the 63 noted previously. Better gains were seen across all platinum coins, most gold coins, all but one of the commemorative coin products and all but one of the proof sets. Silver coins and sets were mixed.

Sales Debut of 5-Star Generals Profiles Collection, William Howard Taft $1 Coin Cover

Also released last week along with the reverse proof Gold Buffalo was the 5-Star Generals Profiles Collection for $74.95 and the 2013 William Howard Taft Presidential $1 Coin Cover for $19.95. Both made it onto the Mint’s top selling list.

Released on August 5, collectors ordered 3,180 of the 5-Star Generals Profiles Collection, which includes an uncirculated silver dollar, an uncirculated clad half-dollar and a bronze medal replica of the 1962 General MacArthur Congressional Gold Medal. The price of the uncirculated coins purchased separately is more than the collection which also has special packaging and the bronze medal. Weekly sales of the individual uncirculated 5-Star Generals Silver Dollar went up 710 to 51,636 while that of the uncirculated 5-Star Generals Clad Half Dollar advanced 368 to 20,910.

Lastly, the William Howard Taft $1 Coin Cover launched on August 6. The coin cover’s opening five-day sales total came in at 10,115, or a bit more than half of its 20,000 product limit. The tally is lower than the immediate previous coin cover featuring Theodore Roosevelt. It started at 11,422.

Sold Out Products

The Making American History Coin and Currency Set was stamped sold out on July 16, 2013 with sales at 60,000. There have been a few adjustments since then. The latest sales report has its total down 108 to 60,205.

A number of Presidential $1 Coin products have been added to the Mint’s "No Longer Available" website section. These include:

This reverse proof thing is looking more and more like a scam, especially the insider trading mess at Chicago. Excuse me if I say no thank you and vote not to participate.

The way things are going, it sounds like the regular proof will be the rare one. The market for proof buffalos is limited and it sounds like they are opting for the reverse proof.

Both buffaloes are gorgeous, And right now is the time imo to buy if you have the $$. To be able to still buy them for $1690.00 might be a good time til next Wednesday. :)

The silver to gold ratio is around 59 to 1. I can buy 69 – 1 oz silver rounds for the price of the reverse proof buffalo. What will be worth more in a few years? You can buy 10 of the UNC 5 oz ATB for less than a proof Buffalo.

Joe#2 August 15, 2013 at 9:01 pm

I’ll take the reverse proof buffalo
