67,331 Fractional Buffalo Sold
By CoinNews.net

The first sales figures from the United States Mint are in for 2008 fractional Buffalo gold coins. In total, a solid 67,331 of the new fractionals have been sold.

The 24 karat gold coins were once offered in one-ounce proof versions only.

On July 22, the Mint expanded the product line by issuing fractional denominations of 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz weights and in both proof and uncirculated.

The 1/10 ounce gold sizes are proving to be the most popular coins. Their lower prices have helped sales even though the Mint charges higher premiums for these smallest coins.

The following numbers highlight uncirculated and proof Buffalo coin sales figures:
