One-ounce American Buffalo gold bullion coins will become available to the market April 29. Authorized Purchasers were notified by the U.S. Mint today that they will be able to place orders on that date.
Bullion coins are not sold directly to the public but through the Mint’s network of Authorized Purchasers. These in turn will sell them to other coin dealers.
It took the Mint until October of last year to make these coins available to the bullion market. Making the 2010 coins available nearly six months earlier than the 2009 pieces might be another sign that bullion coin supply is catching up with demand.
Can the proof and uncirculated collector versions of the Eagles and Buffaloes be far behind?
