In the first three days of availability, collectors purchased 7,597 2017-W proof gold Buffalo coins from the United States Mint.
The beginning of every order period produces a bulge in demand as many collectors order right away or not at all.
Demand for the 2016-W proof generated sales of 21,878, leaving a lot of ground on the upside to be made up by the 2017-W.
Issue price fluctuates with the price of gold bullion for the one-ounce coin. It was priced at $1,590 on opening day, May 11.
