The month of May will be relatively quiet for the United States Mint with only three product releases — the proof American Gold Buffalo, the uncirculated Mint Set, and the uncirculated American Silver Eagle.
All three are annually issued products for collectors. Two of them will score six-figure sales.
A summary of the upcoming products are below.
2018-W Proof American Gold Buffalo
First up for the month is the West Point Mint’s .9999 proof American Buffalo 1-ounce gold coin with an on sale date of this Thursday, May 10.
Its price can change every Wednesday based on the weekly average of LBMA gold. Today, it would be $1,710 based on gold’s position within the range of $1,300.00 to $1,349.99 an ounce.
Last year’s coin ended with sales of 15,810.
2018 Mint Set
Available May 14 for $21.95, the Mint Set includes 20 uncirculated coins with a red folder of 10 coins from the Denver Mint and a blue folder of 10 coins from the Philadelphia Mint.
