2019-W $50 Proof American Buffalo Gold Coin - Both Sides and Case

The Mint’s 2019-W $50 Proof American Buffalo Gold Coin registered three-day starting sales of 5,160

The highlight from the U.S. Mint’s latest weekly sales report is the first showing of the new 2019-W $50 Proof American Gold Buffalo.

Released Friday, April 12, starting three-day sales for the 1-ounce .9999 fine gold coin reached 5,160 pieces. That’s toward the bottom when compared to past series debuts but some latitude should be allotted to this first reported total since it comprises fewer days of sales.

Here’s a table with early sales stats of the annual 24-karat series since 2010:

The American legion Commemn is overkill, so many so close as to Military & design, these coins l00k alot like the US MArshalls, but THEY were much more attractive. The 50c is contrived & the rest are a bunch of who cares?? Pathetic is not enough, the Mint & Congress should be ashamed & the NEW proposed Pilgram issues are fuguly & most look like a 6th grade art show?? Are there any good artists or people with can choose good designs, FIRE the whol advisory board, the stuff is AWFUL…..fuguly gahbage…..

There seems to be a pattern of state quarter fatigue in these numbers – the 3-coin set went from around 24000 units for the first quarters down to about 13000 units for the most recent ones. The 5-ounce rounds are also about 13000 units… So, is it there are now only about 13000 people left interested in these anymore (assuming everyone orders just one unit)?

The mint would sell a lot more gold commems if the metal premium wasn’t so high. instead of %300 try maybe %25-50 instead and watch more sellouts. Instead of $413 try $180.
