Although the Mint is selling only proof coins to the general public, dealers have sending offers to sell the uncirculated coins in the range of $675-699. As I write this, the spot price of gold is $580.
The James Earle Fraser Type 1 Buffalo design is one of my favorite coin designs. It is a truely American design. It will be interesting to see how the rest of the world reacts to this coin. I only wish I could afford one!
