I saw a 1 ounce gold Buffalo for the first time a couple of weeks ago. I understand that they are 24 carat gold rather than 22 carat found in American Eagles, which makes them shinier, but softer. My coin dealer was selling them for $52 over spot, compared with $45 over spot for gold American Eagles. The Buffalos were also sealed in plastic with writing from the US mint on them. Any thoughts as to whether or not Buffalos are a better investment than Eagles? I was initially averse to buying Buffalos due to unfamiliarity. However, I now like the idea of the unique appearance, higher carat and sealed package.
