2010 Gold Buffalo Coins

With the price of gold at an all time high, many people are turning their attention to gold coins. The United States Mint just began offering their 24 karat gold bullion coins, the American Gold Buffalo. This series was introduced in 2006 in addition to the existing 22 karat American Gold Eagle.

The US Mint began sales of the 2010 Gold Buffalo bullion coins on April 29, 2010. Last year, the 2009-dated bullion coins went on sale October 15 and sold out by December 4. During this period, the US Mint sold 200,000 coins.

This year, bullion sales are off to a fast start with 90,000 of the one ounce coins sold through mid-May. If the US Mint can keep these coins available throughout the remainder of the year, the annual sales should break the record high of 323,000 set in 2006 for the inaugural year.

The US Mint will begin sales of the 2010 Proof Gold Buffalo on June 3, 2010. Once again this will be earlier than the start date for the 2009-dated proof coin, which was October 29. The US Mint sold about 50,000 of the collectible proof coins with sales ended on March 29, 2010.

HI IM KIND OF CONFUSED WITH THIS GOLD BUFALLO COINS A $50 DOLLARS VALUE. I BOUGHT MINE IN JUNE 2010 BUT I SAW DIFFERENCE FROM THE OTHER GOLD COINS MINE HAS NO MARK $50 DOLLAR VALUE AND IT HAS A 4 LETTER IN THE INDIAN HAIR ( COPY) SEEMS MY GOLD COIN IS FAKE AND HAS NO VALUE. IT SAY IN THE CERTIFICATE ITS MIXED WITH BRONZE AND GOLD.

IS THIS HAS NO VALUE AT ALL?
