I know, I know, you're probably thinking why doesn't this idiot just go to the Air-tite site and look at their chart. I did.

But here's the thing. Their chart says that the proper container is the H40.6. But they have the coin listed as a 40.6 mm diameter coin, and it seems to actually be a 39 mm coin. All other sites like APMEX that sell the coin point you to the H39 air tite.

I'm thinking the Air-Tite site is in error. Can anyone confirm this for me? Thanks

I will take a step sideways.
I have a few coins in air-tights, but they are somewhat different:

I use ex British Royal Mint screw seal acrylic capsules that were originally used for their individual proof coins
These capsules come is a range of sizes. Since they are recycled, originally for individual proof issues or broken proof sets, I buy them very cheaply from my LCS. The screw seal is very positive, and very secure.

Which "silver buffalo"?

The 40.6 is for the American Silver Eagle. The 39 is for "silver round" or "copper round".

I'm with nss-52...

The US Mint doesn't strike a silver Buffalo coin - only silver Eagle bullion coins and they are 40.6 mm in diameter. (The Mint does strike gold Buffalo coins, however).

It appears you are confusing a privately-minted silver round that replicates a coin design struck by the US Mint with an actual US coin. The 39mm diameter you mention is the primary standard for silver rounds; it seems like that is what you have (multiple private mints strike rounds with the Buffalo design).

Thanks for the replies. I am confused though. The coin I have is definitely a third party silver round. But is the silver eagle from the mint also known as a silver buffalo? I'd never heard that but I am new to the hobby.

I took a screen shot of what I was looking at on the air-tite site. I probably should have done that the first time. It has 1 oz silver buffalo listed as 40.6 mm. But if that isn't a synonym for the silver eagle, then I'm going to assume from what nss-52 and commems said that it's gotta be a mistake.

@sel_69l I'll look into those, screw tite would be pretty convenient.
