The United States Mint is introducing a new initiative titled the United States Mint Celebration Series, and will be offering various numismatic coin products that are packaged and positioned to celebrate special gift-giving occasions and celebratory events. The United States Mint’s Celebration Series is an outreach initiative to non-traditional coin collectors and will be available to all collectors and non collectors alike.
The American Buffalo 2008 Celebration Coin is the first product to be introduced in the series and is being launched in time for the 2008 Lunar New Year – a traditionally important gift-giving time of year for Asian-Americans.
This coin is an American Buffalo One Ounce Gold Bullion Coin and contains one ounce of 24-karat, .9999 fine gold. Each coin is packaged in its traditional protective covering and placed in a bright red, plush-lined gift box with a custom-designed foil-stamped outer sleeve.
The American Buffalo Gold Bullion Coin’s obverse and reverse designs feature images originally prepared by noted American sculptor James Earle Fraser, a student of Augustus Saint-Gaudens, for the redesign of America’s 5-cent coin (nickel). A custom-designed Certificate of Authenticity features the signature and chop mark of the Director of the United States Mint. The weight and content of the American Buffalo 2008 Celebration Coin is backed by the United States Government.
Product Limit: No set product limit.The American Buffalo 2008 Celebration Coin is expected to begin shipping in late February. If paying by credit card, please be sure your credit card information remains current.
